RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 29 Sep 2005 by Patricia Dunn [teacher556@swbell.net]. "My mom fathers' name William Weil, her mom Amber Frisbie. Mom was raised by the name Frisbie (her Grandparents raised her). Ruth and I were born almost 14 years apart and at some time mom got a delayed birth certificate... on it she put her maiden name as Weil... and she put Weil on my birth ertificate... she was 33 when I was born Nov. 18, 1944. However she was 19 when Ruth was born Feb. 9, 1931 and she put Frisbie as her maiden name then. Ruth, being the oldest took care of the estate when mom died July 25, 1989 and Ruth put Frisbie as moms' maiden name on her death certificate.

LeEtta's mom had her at 16 and a few years later married a Kaemmerling and then she had Edward. While Edward was a baby mom was run completly over by a Model T-Ford, so her grandparents took her and raised her. No marriage certificate was found for Amber and William."

Mom had letters from her dad in later life and met a 1/2 sister, they resembled and had a lot in common and very much liked one another. Also sisters of William kept in touch with mom, so I have no doubt of her parentage, just he wasn't in the picture much."
