Ralph Gates McComb was my grandfather. He was married to Kathryn Hanley who was the first Sweet Pea Carnival Queen of Bozeman Montana. Fannie was Kathryn's sister. I was unaware they lived together. Ralph and Kathryn died of the great flu epedemic in 1918 in Pennsylvania. The story that I heard growing up was that sometime after after Ralph and Kathryn died Fannie lost the family ranch in Bozeman due to past due taxes.
Bruce and Kenneth went to live with Ralph's sister Leeda (McComb) Spurgeon in Eagle Rock California. He married my mother BernaDean Jones there around 1940. Kenneth Married Bobbie (unk maiden name) and moved to Denver. Their children are Timothy and Katie.
I took a trip to Bozeman in 2002 and found the property through old records in the Historical Society. It was still vacant land at that time but it the surrounding area was housing tracts.
Bruce died in Long Beach, CA in 1973 and Kenneth died a short time later in Denver Colorado.
