Frederick J. Neesam (1881-1969)

Frederick J. Neesam (1881-1969), a Gallaudet College alumnus, had a legendary career as coach at Wisconsin School for the Deaf, Delavan. I'm trying to locate his descendants (to obtain details and photos). He and his wife, Frances Marie (Kabat) Neesam, had two daughters: Beulah Saxe and Lucile Neesam Olson, and a son, Ralph. Lucile Olson graduated from Gallaudet in 1939, and lived in Blanco, Texas. She had a son named Kent Taylor who, if alive, would be in his late 50s or so. It's unlikely that Lucile, Beulah, or Ralph are still alive; I don't know anything further of them. I've contacted Gallaudet University Alumni Association (which has two photos and sent me some old newsclips), WSD, and the Delavan newspaper about this . . . so far, no responses except from the Archives.
