Mr. & Mrs. Fred Warns Sr. were my Great-Grandparents on my Mothers side.

My Grandmother was Anna M. (Warns) Malchow. Anna was my Mothers - Mother and Daughter to Fred Sr. and Katherine Warns from the Owen-Withee Wisconsin area.

I was born in 1957 in Neenah, WI - Son to Raymond & Elizabeth (Malchow) Graverson.

Raymond T. Graverson - My Father (1913-1987)

Elizabeth Ann (Malchow) Graverson - My Mother (1924-2004)

Anna M. (Warns) Malchow - My Grandmother (Born - March 7, 1897 (1897 to 1984)

I was doing a simple unrelated search when I stumbled upon the name Fred Warns Sr. That naturally caught my attention and so I continued to follow through several links and wound up on your website. I have learned more about my Great Grandparents in the last 24 hours than I had in my entire life. It was a wonderful surprise.

I am looking forward to sharing this information with my 5 siblings, their families and a few of my remaining relatives. Thank you for providing this information via the internet. Your efforts are appreciated!
