Summoning all relatives of Col. Raymond Alvin Nowotny. Please contact a nice Italian gentlemen by the name of Glauco Mencaroni, he has something of yours. (I will demonstrate steely self-control and not joke about Glauco’s last name. Still, I hear his family’s big in the macaroni biz. Their product? Pasta shaped like dudes. On further review: Self-control may be overrated.)
Update: A kind reader by the name of Ethel emailed me this- On Ancestry.com there is a woman, Ellen Nowotny, who was married to Alvin..in Orange, California. Most likely a relative of Col. Raymond Alvin Nowotny.
