-------------- Notes -----------
Bill Kissinger has been out of contact for some time. The Social Security Death index identifies a William E. Kissinger having died in Phoenix, AZ on July 30, 2003. His date of birth was in 1925 and he was issued his social security number in Wisconsin; therefor it reasonable to presume it is him.
A June Rose is listed in the Social Security Death Index as having died in Waukesha 4./21/06. Born 10/8/1927 with the social security card issued in Wisconsin beginning with the number 387 (same as mine) suggesting a Milwaukee area application. An attempt to find an obituary or death notice on line was not successful. Presumably this is June Sellman Rose who we lost contact with in 2001, at which time she was living in St. Petersburg, Florida. Perhaps she moved to Waukesha to be near relatives.
