More information

I posted a letter here several years ago and I would like to re-post it to see if I get any more responses. I received some information from Lynn Tweedt-Rabinowe but I would like to find more people who knew him and might have more information for me.

My father, Bob Mitchell, owned a florist shop in Minonk in the 1970s. If anyone has any information or pictures, I was wondering if you could contact me. He passed away about 23 years ago, but I am trying to gather some information on him, as we were estranged. He also married a lady named Marilyn. I have no idea if she was from Minonk or not. I'm not even sure that she is still alive. The last I heard she was living in Hawaii, but I have lost contact with her. If anyone has any information, please contact me at . Thank you. I do remember going to Minonk several times during the summer of 1970 and part of 1971. I joined the Navy in July of '71 and I spent some time with him in Minonk before I left. Thanks for any and all help you can provide.
