My Grandfather Harry was the 10th of 11 children born to Jacob Graff and Wilhemina Wullenwaber. Both of their families originated in Germany.

Grandma Floy's parents, Marion Riley Baker and Sally A. Hart, had four children.
She had one brother, Harry Hart Baker, and two sisters, Bertha Baker Tridle and Lorna Baker Kestler.

All of the sisters remained in the Nebraska or Kansas area but their brother Harry and his wife Lottie C. Roll Baker were in Tulare County, California, based upon the 1940 US Census. He died in San Jose, California, in 1965.

Harry August Graff is buried in Orafino, Nebraska and Floy Baker Graff Childs Saip is buried in Belleville Cemetery, Belleville, Kansas.
