My husband, William James Strickler, Jr. was born in PA in 1925. He was the only child of "Wild" Bill Strickler, a race car driver from the early 1900s, and Emma (maiden name unknown), who was a nurse. Emma died sometime during the late 50s or early 60s. I'm not sure if she divorced Wild Bill, but they weren't together when she died. Emma also had a sister in NY. I was told that both my husband's parents were born in, and immigrated from Germany - settling in PA near their family (relationship unknown). I have pictures of a roadside motel they (or their family) owned and operated, but I don't know what town it was in.
My husband died in July 2001. My step-son, William J. Strickler, III, Orlando, FL is looking for info about his grandfather's racing career. My daughter, Summer, and I are seeking info about Emma Strickler - specifically the town where she's buried so my husband's ashes can be placed there. Any assistance in this search would be very much appreciated.
