Here is a document I found on line with Ancestry, where "Uncle Lewis" died, in the Elks Club in San Francisco as noted on this funeral home paper - He had lived in San Francisco for 39 years, and when I visit SF I went with this paper and had lunch in the Elks Club with my friend Rick Borutta who had moved from NY out to California - I later drove to Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga and took grave site photos and put them up on Find a Grave - hoping others of his line, might look me up!
In 1972 I visited Finday and the Glessners with my mom, Peg Glessner Weaver, and decided to find Glessner Ave which was named after our early Glessner pioneers to Findlay, Lewis and Georgianna Cowles Glessner who arrived here in the early 1860's. Inez, at age 84, on the left was born on the Chase family farm in 1888, the daughter of Justus Zedikiah Chase, in Liberty Twp. My mom, here, then 62, still had a tinge of the red, auburn hair, that she inherited from the Chase lineage.
