Wilfred HOLTZMAN (1889-aft. 1932) AR>IA>OH>CA m. Ina STRAIGHT

Seeking info on Wilfred and/or descendants. Wilfred born Sept. 1889, Little Rock, AR, son of William Davis and Carolina (Lena) Weigel Holtzman. Wilfred left Little Rock and lived in Adel, Iowa and Toledo, Ohio. I believe he met Ina STRAIGHT in Adel and suspect that they might have married there but I haven't verified the marriage yet. Wilfred had two children by Ina, son Wilfred Straight (b. 21 May 1922) and daughter Barbara (b.abt. 1918). According to census record, both children were born in Iowa. By 1930, Wilfred and Ina had divorced. Wilfred was living in Toledo and ex-wife Ina had taken the children to Tompkins Co., NY. Son Wilfred Straight died 1959, Los Angeles, CA. No further info on Barbara.

Wilfred's niece has told me that he was an architect and did a lot of work for a Catholic order of nuns (Little Sisters of the Poor?). She further thinks that he died in California but she doesn't remember the approximate time. Wilfred had a second marriage, to a Rose (Unknown), but I don't think they had any children. I remember meeting her when I was a child, I think Wilfred was dead by that time. I can only guess it was sometime around the late 1950s.

Ring any bells with anyone?
