Hi Joyce,

I found something on this page:

I'm not sure who provided the information regarding the people on the page, but I'm hoping that you can give me the e-mail of the person that submitted it so that I can provide them with additional information regarding Ina Marguerite French and her mother, etc. William VanCise was not her father or step-father. Robert Lewis VanCise was her step-father. Her mother was Helen/Ella A.Harkness.
