1903 Gehringer is Born

Oops, one more post on Charley Gehringer!

The other day, I met up with someone that wanted to do a little research in the Fowlerville historical collection.  I figured since he was busy, I would do a little research of my own.  There is a box in the collection labeled "Charles Gehringer" and I decided to breeze through it.  There are a number interesting articles that go beyond what I have posted, and anyone is more than welcome to come browse the information.

There was almost too much to post but I did find the above picture that just had to show up here.  The Detroit News published this picture in 1954 of Gehringer when he was a mere two years old.  He was born May 11, 1903 in Iosco county.  His parents were Leonard and Theresa, and he was one of nine children born to the couple.

You need to check your facts, You have got some of the info wrong - Leonard and Theresa had 4 and Leonard had 7 by his first marriage.
