****************************************
I suggest that you get a copy of John and Eleanore's marriage certificate to get her parents names. I cannot be sure of which Eleanor/e it is who was born in 1929.

I also suggest that you get a copy of the marriage certificate of John Sr. and Sylvia to find out who her parents were.

With both bits of information, perhaps I can find more information about their families.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Susan Nass
