    Dear Cousin Louise, My sister Philippina has told me of your letter exchanges and sent me the Kammerer History you sent. It is very helpful. I'm trying to trace our ancestory on both sides (parents). I am a little lost when it comes to my grandfather Cornelius Frank. I know he married Philobena Kammerer but that's all I know. I know that Cornelius Frank (my grandfather) and Andrew Princing (sp?) ran away from Germany Army and came to New York (I think). I believe Andrew Princing came to Devils Lake, North Dakota area first and Grandfather Frank years later followed. . . .
         I married Henry Roy Norman the son and Philippina married his father. . . . I am 55 years, born Feb. 1, 1923, Cando, North Dakota, I've had 9 children, 7 living, 14-33. . . . Todd 14, Kelly Jo 20, Gregory 21, Russell 23, Donna 27, Judy 31, Bonnie 33. . . .
