hopefully it will lead to a good history it would be nice if the line came here in protest to the war, but I would hate to find out (even thould I would like to know) that they took part in all the yeckie stuff that happened. At least being Irish, and Scottish (so thought) was running from hope for likely a better life.

I worked on all this before the internet and did not get past Grandpa Otto, an my Grandfather Leanord had already dyed. He was in the neavy during WWII's attack on peral harbor. The bomb missed his boat by feet and it was one of the ones that did not sink. He was a Machienist mate and I believe an NCO. He retired and went to work for Renyolds in California. He was maried once to Dell Sterlining (might turn out to be delta or something) She died of breast cancer that moved into bone cancer when I was 5. I know nothing about her life as I was so young. Plettner is not a blood realitive on my mothers side. My grandfathere there was 100% chipaowa indian. I am sure I still have access to his lineage. So well when the kids ask if they are Americains the truth is Well at least 1/8th of them was here before the rest of the world. They were in love but grandma on mom's side was a little on the selfish side in lovers. Plettner (Edwin) raised mom as his own and even though she knew he never knew she did. We never told him. He came over to the us at the turn of the centuary. He was in WWI and WWII, and was an finance officer in the army I believe he retired a LTC O-5 by pay grade). He had a very noble family line though it actually is not ours it always made me proud. I don't know why we never talked about thiss stuff, odd....
