Kraft Foods Fam Tree = James L Kraft's parents Geo. F. & Minerva (Tripp) Krafft. Seeking Geo's siblings & their kids

+5 votes
The Kraft Family Tree (Kraft Foods) begins with James Lewis Kraft's parents, George Franklin Krafft and wife Minerva (née Tripp). I'm seeking info in George Krafft's siblings and their children.

My family has an oral history that connects us to James Lewis Kraft. It is believed that my great grandmother Ana Kraft and James were cousins. They were the same age.

Please, can you help me fill in this branch of the Krafft/Kraft family tree?

By the way, Roger, when you ask a question in G2G, if you include the WikiTree ID in the box that says "WikiTree ID/URL if this relates to a person or free-space profile:", that alerts the profile for the manager of the profile you're asking about. So if you had entered "Krafft-73" (or any ID from that family) into that box, I would have received a notification that you were asking a question.

I've pushed out the family a little bit more in response to your question. Do you know Ana's parents' names (or even one?) and when/where she was born? Either datum would give me more hints on where to dig.

Thank you for the source, Frank. I hadn't looked up all of James' siblings, and so didn't have certain birthdates for them.
