Grandmother’s parents and grandparents in her diary

My uncle mailed me a copy of a page from my late Grandmother (Franke) DeGraaf’s diary.  I received this on Thursday.  This page includes the names and birth information about her parents and grandparents.  The new information found in this document include:

  1. Blanche Isabelle (Bangs) Franke birthday is stated as 09 Dec 1882.  Information from the document Winslow Genealogy states 09 Dec 1883.
  2. Henry Cleveland Franke’s complete name is written as “Henry Edward Cleveland Franke”.  The 1900 US census does list his name as “Henry E C Franke”.  Henry’s WWI and WWII draft cards have his name written as “Henry Cleveland Franke“.
  3. The name of Henry E. C. Franke’s father is Henry.  He was born in the year 1841 in Muenster, Germany.

I have a new URL for the family-tree hosted at Rootsweb.  It can now be found by clicking HERE.  I recently updated the tree to include Leland DeGraaf Sr.’s parents and grandparents; I wrote about William Henry DeGraaf and Henry Peek DeGraaf in previous posts.  Also updated Blanche (Bangs) Franke’s lineage back to Kenelm Winslow (d. 1607).
