Fred J. Harms was my father's step father. He was born Oct. 20, 1886 in Germany. Son of John Tobias Harms and Anna Heeren. He had 3 wives, Ida, who died shortly after their marriage, Minnie, who died before 1927, and my Grandmother Mary Erue Knowles. He had 3 daughters with Minnie, 4 daughters and 1 stepson, my father, who he legally adopted when my father was 18, with my Grandmother. Grandma died of cancer in 1954 at the age of 49.

I do have a little info on the Harms side, but I haven't tracked this side a great deal since it is not the bloodline, but it was the only father my dad knew. If I can add anything that will help e-mail me. However, I still am not sure this is the same Fred originally talked about, as my Fred is buried in Oak Knoll cemetery in Sterling with Erue and 3 great grandsons.
