Grossnickle-20 and Grossnickle-49 appear to represent the same person because: Violet Lavina Grossnickle appears to be the same person as yours since both married the same man Clarence Fairbanks. I have not added his info until I hear from you. My research started with Violet's ancestors. Thanks, Ray Domanski
