Francis Pearl was a man? Well, anyway - we might have some ties (though I don't seem to be getting anywhere for the past couple of weeks trying to link someone to her). Let me give you some information.
Frances Gross married John Joseph Russo. She was supposedly from New Mexico. My father was born in NY. They had four children. Michelina, John Jr., Thomas and Edwardine (Denise). She left my father and married an african american man named David (can't remember last name) who owned a neon sign shop in Newark, NJ. They supposedly had children too. My father then went on to marry my mother, which is where I fit in. I am looking for Francis for my sister who has not seen her mother since she was very very young. She is hoping she is alive, but if she has passed on, we would like to know too.
Do you think you are connected somehow?
