Hi Larry,

Thanks for replying to my e-mail.

I did find Jacob and Rose Reff at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Cemeteries site last week. I was hoping to find additional information other than what was provided at this website. If you come across any REFF family information (obits, etc.), please let me know.

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you very much for taking the time to look up the obituaries for Jacob and Rose Reff. I really appreciate it. This information has given me some new leads.

I guess my next step is to get a copy of Jacob Reff's death certificate. By any chance do you ever go to the Court House or wherever there might be a copy of Jacob Reff's death certificate. I would reimburse you for the cost and your time. Date of death: October 9, 1956 in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

Thanks again for your help.
