>Thanks for the response so quickly. Grandpa was Joseph. He had bothers - Frank, Jerry, Billy, Edward, Charles,John and Jerry. They were all self taught musicians. Billy was in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" 1939 for playing the longest amount of time without stopping. Charles was a child prodigy- played the violin, he married Viola who played the cello. Bill played over 151 hours without stopping. Grandparents were Vincent and Mary Franz, and Frances Helen Kropacek. She died very young. The Frances Helen line had 3 girls....Lillian Olga, Valeria and Edythe.
