    Classification: Query
    What is your connection to this family? My great-grandfather Herman Krake was John Krak’s younger brother. Their parents were Adam and Katherine Krak. There were 14 children in this family: John and a brother Adam (who died young) were born in New York; Lena, Katie, Herman, Elizabeth, Annie, Lydia, William, Amanda (died young), and Priscilla were born after the family relocated to Burnside, Lapeer County, Michigan; Mary, Ellen, and Rebecca were born after they moved to Pembina County, North Dakota.

    Here’s what I have on John’s children:

    Rosa Anna Krak was born on 27 September 1888 in North Dakota. She married Allen Einarson in about 1921. They had at least one son, born about 1928 (possibly still living in California). She died on 3 April 1980 in Los Angeles, at age 91.

    Ruben J. Krak was born on 23 June 1890 in North Dakota, and died in August 1974 in Hamilton, North Dakota. He married Irene M. Schluchter in about 1917. They had four daughters, two of whom are now deceased: Mildred Mae (Krak) Apuli (1922-1998) and Ruby L. (Krak) Vistad (1927-2010).

    Edna E. Krak was born 19 September 1894, North Dakota. She married Ernest Harry Carlson (1888-1958) about 1920; no known children. She died 9 February 1987, buried in Cavalier Cemetery, North Dakota.

    Flossie Eva Krak was born on 6 January 1897 in North Dakota, and died on 14 November 1965 in Los Angeles, California. She married Martin J. Gronos in about 1924. They had two sons, both now deceased: Donald Krake Gronos (1925-2009) and Loren S. Gronos (1928-1980).

    Dewey McKinley Krake was born on 12 January 1899 in North Dakota, and died in October 1971 in Oregon City, Clackamas County, Oregon. He married (1) Lucy (2) Jennie, surnames unknown. Appears on voter registration list in Ventura County, California in 1938, but had relocated to Clackamas County, Oregon by the time of his enlistment for WWII. No info regarding children.

    Miles Roosevelt A. Krak was born on 26 June 1901 in North Dakota. Pvt Army Air Forces, WWII. Died on 29 July 1975 in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Buried in Zion Cemetery, Cavalier, North Dakota. No further info.

    Pansy Pearl Katy Krak was born on 13 September 1902 in North Dakota, and died on 20 June 1959 in Red Lake County, Minnesota. She was buried in Cavalier Cemetery near her sister Edna. Her married name was Omvig, but I haven't yet identified her husband.
