ANY information for EDWIN BEN VIRKLER
This is my grandfather. He disappeared just prior to April 8, 1919 from Cleveland, Ohio. I made a promise to my mother to continue her search for him. April 8 was the day she was born - the last of 6 kids. Her father was a chauffeur - a mechanic - ... The 6 kids were never allowed to know what happened? One day he was there - the next he was not.
I only know he was born in UPSTATE NY ?????? 11-Aug-1885 We were told (for what it is worth) that he was born with name of LUCAS - Edwin Ben LUCAS - I assume - and somewhere along the line his mother married a man named VIRKLER and his name became VIRKLER to be the same as his siblings.
