Seeking Donna Kephart, g-gdaughter of Marian Henderson Erckenbrack

I just recently received a copy of a letter written sometime before 1980 (unsure how long before) by Donna Kephart. She mentions her ggrandmother, Marian Henderson Erckenbrack/Ercanbrack. She also mentions an Uncle Ray and Lorena in Glen Ellen, CA. as well as a Clifford, last name unknown, and James Philip Erckenbrack who was a Justice of the Peace in Minnesota. There is a reference to a Clare Angell in Osage, Iowa. There are several mentions about photos of these people.
The last paragraph in the letter reads, "You've certainly got a lot of good material from the courthouse at Fonda, NY, You've also done a lot of hard work getting your mother into the DAR - and she sounds delighted with all of your efforts. I hope to help you as much one day and will keep working away on the Erckenbracks and Loves. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could locate someone in the Love family who is a genealogist?"
DONNA, WHERE ARE YOU? There are six of us Love Detectives who are working on this very line! Clinton Love and Mary Stalker's daughter, Rachel Jane, married James Philip Erckenbrack. Marian Henderson married their son, Arthur; and Clare Angell descends from their son, Clinton Love Erckenbrack. She married Rollin Angell.
We have a photo of James Philip Erckenbrack with his sons, James Allen and Clinton Love. Clinton was Constable of Parkers Prairie, MN. and he is wearing his badge in the photo.
We are also in possession of two photos of Rachel Jane Love Erckenbrack. One was taken at the Perkins Gallery in Sparta, WI.
If you are DONNA KEPHART or know how to locate DONNA KEPHART, or any of her descendants, please reply. We may have worlds of information to exchange.
