At 2:00 on the afternoon of the 26th of September we had a meeting with Marcia Hur, my only living sibling of seven from my mother Margaret Gross. Marcia and I had communicated previously but had not met. The meeting took place at the Tuvalue Coffee Shop in Verona, WI a suburb of Madison and was perfect as we only had a limited time in order to get Sara and Sue back to the Dane County Municipal Airport (MSN). It was a meeting of Margaret’s first and last child with some 20 years difference in age. Marcia was very warm and open to all of us and also brought a packet of pictures for us to peruse.
One of the most nagging questions was that Margaret went to her grave without revealing anything about her first born. There were other possible opportunities of queries or people who knew something, i. e., Mary Ellen Kormacher who was Margarets mother-in-law that had a brother Dr. Edwin Korfmacher in Grinnell and was responsible for Margaret giving birth to me in Grinnell, but those people are all gone. Many questions will continue to go unanswered.
Anyway, everyone loved the Marcia get to gather but it was way to short.
