My sister Beatrice googled our family names and your picture of the Stainers came up. Imagine our surprise. Betty Roska York was my mom. She died in 1996. Adolph & Betty Stainer Roska were her parents. Mom's grandfather did live with them and she adored him. I'm pretty sure he's the one on the lower right. My mother said they were related to the Stainer violin makers.
It's pretty amazing all the trouble you went through to track down family members. I can reimburse you for postage. Feeling grateful. Thank you!
This is a picture of William Stainer, my Great Grandfather, Bettie Stainer Roska, Bill Roska & Betty Roska York, my Mom. I'm looking for more info on the family. I have it but where is the question.
Mom always said we were related to Leslie Howard, Ashley from Gone With the Wind. He was actually a Stainer.
The genealogy I know goes
Betty Roska York
Bettie Stainer Roska
William A Stainer
John Jacob Stainer
I didn't know that some of the relatives were Swiss born so I learn that from your group. Either way thank you this has been interesting.
I'll look for the brother's names as I have another picture somewhere.
The picture came today. William is on seated on the right I believe. Thank you for you time and efforts.
I'll send some money for postage etc soon.
It's a good thing that you do. Keep it up.
Thanks for stopping by.
