    I don’t believe Daryl’s maternal grandfather was Jewish or at least of mainly Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Edward Meek Krebs (1932-1984), (Illinois) was the son of Ferdinand M Krebs (1900-1952) Putnam, Ohio and Dolores Meck (1905), Illinois. Ferdinand was the son of Joseph Andrew Krebs (1873-1961) Putnam, Ohio and Margaret Castle (1876-1958) Ohio. Joseph’s father Francis Krebs (1847-1910) was born in Bayern, German but does not appear to be Jewish at all. Francis’ wife Maria Flora Heitzman (1850-1920), Ohio, was the daughter of a German, non-Jewish mother Adelhide Haller (1816-1885), Baden, Wuttemberg Germany. There is also some English I can get to on this family tree so maternal grandfather should be changed to German + English

      Disregard that. but Edward Meek Krebs parents parents were Fred Krebs and Dolores Meck I believe.

      • follers says:

        Disregard what part? That they weren’t Jewish?

        Sabara’s grandfather seems to have gone by Edward Meck Krebs, although the death record for Fred and Dolores’ son says Edward Paul Krebs. Was this the same person?

          @Follers ancestry.com U.S. Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 makes it seem like it is. Same birthplace and time in Illinois. I am not 100% certain.

    His mother is named Sandra Gail “Sandy” Krebs. She still uses her birth name.

    “Sabara” is not a Jewish sirname. Sabara is Spanish, and yes, there is such thing as, Spanish Jews!!
