My name is Tim Fuller. My mothers maiden name is Folk. I found an interesting posting from you, about some Folk family. I'm really looking for some info on a Lee Isam Folk born about 1896 in Gilmore, Humboldt, Iowa. His father and mother were John Henry Folk and Mima Katherine Silveus married in Tayorville, Illinois on 20 Jan 1889. Close to your info, but not completely.
I also saw part posting of a family tree that said "Shelgren of Tampa, Florida, and Lee Folk of Long Beach, Calif." I have Shelgren family from Iowa. And I have been looking into a Lee I. Folk that died in Orange county, California in 1968. I found his SS# that said that it was issued in Florida. I'm trying to connect him to my mother as her grandfather.
Here is my story: My great grandfather (Lee I Folk b. about 1896) left my great grandmother (Marie Kathrine Schlögl b. about 1894) around the time my grandfather (Robert Lee Folk) was born, in 1916. Then Lee I Folk disappeared. But I found the following web site by the Silveus Family that shows some of my Folk side of the family. It includes the of OBITUARY - JOHN H. FOLK (My Great Great Grandfather) that said that his son Lee I Folk lived in Long Beach, Calif. Also I believe there is a typo on the web site that said "Leo Folk", I believe it should say "Lee Folk".
This is from a web site I found: http://www.michaelsilveus.com/genealogy/wga3.html#I286
Do you have any info about a Lee Isam Folk before about 1920
If any of this is helpful to you or if you have more info for me, please reply.
