George Franklin Krafft

Birthplace? Father? Mother? Siblings?

Spouse = Minerva Alice (née Tripp) Krafft

Notable children = James L. Krafft

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?

      I am pretty sure that all ancestors of James Lewis Kraft were written "Krafft" with double f and that the second f in the surname got lost when James Lewis Kraft became US-citizen in 1911. So it has to be Francis Krafft and George Krafft. At least that's what you can read about the Kraft family at the Ontario Heritage Foundation

      When was your great grandmother born? Thanks to Betty's sources, I could pin down George in the 1871 Census. At that time, his siblings were Louis, Charles, Francis Kraft, and Elizabeth.
