You're welcome for the directions to this thread! His obit may not provide much personal info? That's 'cause he wed Marie Rose (nee: Puppo) Verkin after the death of her first husband, Louis Max Verkin (1 Sep 1895 - 31 May 1949). Marie's first union produced a stillborn son, Stephan (28 Nov 1926) and daughter, Marie Antoniette (nee: Verkin) Cihlar-Manno (30 Aug 1920 - 24 Jan 2008). There are three births on Texas Birth Index, 1903-1997 (http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=8781
) for parents: Marie Antoniette Verkin/Joe Edward Cihlar. Perhaps one of those descendants has information on their grandmother's second husband?
