This is an updated version of my original post in 2011, including new information on how my grandparents met and new pictures.
My grandmother Edna Willis worked in a factory as a seamstress, along with a couple of her sisters. They had moved from Maryland to Lansdale, PA to find jobs. Edna met my grandfather Royce Councill while working at the factory. My Dad's parents were Anna Lee Pulskamp and Robert Creeden. They were listed on the same page in the census in Celina, Ohio and attended the same school, so I would guess they knew each other as children.
