BOOTJER family in Crawford and BOOTJER Hospital there.

Classification: Query
Looking for info on Melvin Herman BOOTJER who lived with his parents, Herman & Johanna (FREESE) BOOTJER on a farm near Crawford. Information says Melvin was known as "Butch" and was a star of the football team. He married Beryl KOCH in Crawford in 1936.

Info also says he worked in the Bootjer Hospital there which was founded by his mother to care for wounded soldiers. He enlisted in the Navy and returned to Crawford in 1945 where they raised son Charles and daughter Jeanne. In 1953 they moved to Santa Barbara, CA, where they both died.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. You can respond to my email:

Thanks much.
