I want to find the ancestry of Harry Raaf's mother Annabelle (maiden name unknown). Harry was born on September 25th 1895 and died in August of 1965. It is believed that Annabelle (Harry's mother) was of Native American Indian descent and was from a tribe out of the mountains in Pennsylvania. Please email me at I just recently became aware of my native american roots when my new dentist pointed out that I have a very pronounced mandibular tori which is a genetic trait only known to native american indians and their ascendants and descendants.

Good morning John,

My name is Julie Detmering and I have been working on my family history and genealogy and have run across your post from January 14th, 2000 requesting information on Harry Raaf’s mother Annabelle (maiden name unknown).

I am a descendant of William Raaf, brother of Harry and son of Annabelle. I don’t have a lot of information on this side of my family and I would love to hear what you have. My grandmother is Bernice Raaf, daughter of William. I have William’s birth date at Nov. 19th, 1899 and he died in May of 1981 in St. Louis, MO – I have vague memories of him (I was born in 1976). I know that he had several brothers, Amial, Arthur, Charles, Chap and Harry but I know nothing about them or their spouses or children or dates. And I have Anabelle listed as their mom with no information on her last name, origins or her husband.

If you have any information that you would be willing to share, I would be most appreciative. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
