Hi, James. Sorry I don't have info on Arbor & Myrtle, but am very interested in George Henry. Do you happen to know if he hailed from Iowa? My Dad's name was Earl George Henry Franz, born in Audobon County, Ia., and spending many years there and in Adair County, Ia. In the last year or so, I came across a shirttail relative of his, an Elsie Lorenz, whose first husband was a George Henry Franz (they married Nov. 28, 1906, presumably in Iowa). (Her distant relationship to my dad was other than through George Henry.)I have no records of it, but somehow have memory of G.H. going to Colorado after the divorce. Elsie subsequently married an Otto Nelson in 1944. If your George Henry was from Iowa, particularly from the Audobon or Adair County areas, then he MUST tie in to my family, as there just weren't many Franzs in Iowa at all. Would love to see if this unfolds.
