Daniel W. (Bill) McGreevy writes: 'My grandmother and grandfather met in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania - they are Anna Ruttkamp (1857-1936) and Wilhelm Ploenes (born 12 Feb. 1860-1944). Anna and Wilhelm had four children: sisters Helen (1894-1987) and Louise, and brothers Albert ('Uncle Al') and William ('Uncle Will'). Albert ('Uncle Al') left Pittsburgh to work in Akron, Ohio. There he met and married Myra Baugh (1891-1990). Uncle Al and Myra had three children - two sons and a daughter: William D. Ploenes (born 03 December 1925) and Albert Lee ('Patch') Ploenes (born 04 February 1936), and Elizabeth A. Ploenes (1920-1983). Mom's (Helen) second brother was Uncle Will (1886-1922).

Uncle Will (Ploenes), his wife, Maude Dean (1889-1920) and their two daughters: Ann Marvin (1909-1998) (married to Leo Verdugo), and Phyllis (1913) (married to McKenzie). This family lived in the Los Angeles area (Alhambra, CA). (Uncle Will Ploenes, due to being diagnosed with TB, decided that the California climate was conducive to the easing of his TB symptoms, thus he and his family settled in the Los Angeles area in Alhambra).

Our Dad enlisted in the Army in 1917 at Butte and was stationed at Camp Kearny, San Diego, California, until his discharge on March 1, 1919. He returned to Montana but spent a short period at school in Creighton, Nebraska. He moved to Los Angeles along with Auntie Small (Delia) and her family, in 1922. He married Helen S. Ploenes on September 22, 1923 in Alhambra. They had 5 children - Patricia A. (1924); Joan L. (1930); Daniel W. (1932); James A. (1934); and Richard (1937).

The family lived in Long Beach, California (in the 3635 Lemon Avenue house). Dad died in 1966 and Mom in 1987 - both (Daniel James McGreevy and Helen McGreevy) are buried at Golden Gate Cemetery, San Bruno, California.'
