Mark & Ritter

My paternal grandmother was Ivy Regina (Mark) Brown. She gives me my connection to the Mark family. A difficulty arises when doing on line searches for this branch of the family tree. Mark often pops up as a first name. Surnames associated with the Mark family are: Ritter, Gruissy, Heffelfinger, Mowrey, Fisher and Wolf.
