Re: Seeking info on Frank KRISE (probably around Hegins/Valley View area)

In Reply to: Seeking info on Frank KRISE (probably around Hegins/Valley View area) by Steven Lewis Krise of 255

I suspect Frank Krise was living in Minersville, PA around 1909 because according to my grandfather's (Paul Jacob KRISE, Frank's son) obituary, my grandfather was born in Minersville on 1909-Jul-23.

I also found this very intriguing household on (from the 1880 census) with a 6 month old Frank KREIS in it, but at this point I don't have a clue how to try to link this tantalizing bit of information to the very little bit I know about my ggrandfather, Frank KRISE. This census entry resonates because the Frank in this household would have been between 29-30 when my grandfather was born. Also, my grandfather's middle name matches Frank's father's name - Jacob.

1880 Census info from here:

Name        Relation        Marital Status        Gender        Race        Age        Birthplace        Occupation        Father's Birthplace       Mother's Birthplace

Sarrah KREIS         Wife         M         Female         W         23         PA         Keeping House         PA         PA
George KREIS         Son         S         Male         W         4         PA                 PA         PA
Annie KREIS         Dau         S         Female         W         2         PA                 PA         PA
Frank KREIS         Son         S         Male         W         6M         PA                 PA         PA
