I am the granddaughter of Ira and I am looking for information on his parents and siblings. His first marriage was to Mary Poe. They had ten children: Ira (called Russell-he was accidently shot by his cousin), Malvin (called Albert), Carl, Willus (called Dean), Paul (called Bud), Richard (died as a child), Glen, Dorothy, Stella, and Majorie. His second marriage was to Minnie Gerdsen. They had three daughters: Shirley, Marcella, and Aleta. Minnie also had a son from previous: Clyde Gerdsen. Most of us live in Kansas.
