Herbert ARL

Herbert was born 10 MAR 1929, according to the SSDI, and died 30 MAY 2003 in Palm Desert, Riverside County, CA. Nobody claimed his body. No next of kin were found.

The 1930 census shows Herbert ARL with his parents, Peter and Louise, in Melrose Park Village, Proviso Township, Cook County, Illinois. Peter was 40 (born about 1890), md at 33, and from Germany. He came to the US in 1913 and was an engineer in a packing house. Louise was 35 (born about 1895), md at 29, from Florida, as were her parents. The children, all born in Illinois, were Theodore, 6; Charlotte, 5; Eddie, 3y2m; and Herbert, 1y1m. The family's race is recorded as mixed.

The SSDI adds:
Peter ARL, born 09 OCT 1882, died FEB 1974 in Lakewood, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. he got his SSN in Illinois before 1951. The birth year is quite different from the census, but he's probably our guy. Theodore A. ARL, born 29 AUG 1923, died 19 OCT 1999 in Holiday, Pasco, Florida. Edward A. ARL, born 09 FEB 1927, died 02 MAR 2002 (after Herbert) in Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois.

The obituary of Amanda Hope SKOLNICK (via www.Ancestry.com) from the Woodstock Independent of Woodstock, Illinois, dated 01 NOV 2003, names Theodore ARL, Marilyn ARL, and Janet L. (ARL) SKOLNICK, among others. Other sources show that Janet SKOLNICK is married to Robert SKOLNICK and still in Woodstock. There is more to this story; Amanda was a 20-year old student at the University of Iowa when she was killed in an accident.

There are relatives of Herbert ARL in Illinois. I leave it to family and friends to tell them about Herbert's death.
