b. Aug 18, 1868 Russia
d. Nov 2, 1938

b. May 4, 1872 Russia
d. Sept 15, 1940
In a letter from Frank's (Minnie husband) it says that his parents were elderly when he left home (Russia). When he arrived in Philadelphia there was a cablegram saying that his mother had died. All who were left were caught in the Bolsov purge...went to Siberia or ??.
Myabe there were a total of 11 children.... When he came to the US he had a visa to travel for 1 yr (1917). He joined the US army, was issued citizenship papers and never returned to Russia.
I found on the internet a reference to his naturalization, but not sure where I would find the papers. Page 655 of what??? He did live in Gilcrest CO.

Minnie and Frank had 3 children:

3) James married Judith ??...one child, Rebecca Elin
Minnie was my grandfather's (Ralph Geis...lived in Gering Nebraska) sister.
Anyone who might have info about Minnie, her husband Frank Geis....or her father, Frank Geis I sure would love to hear from you.
