Von Bank

6/25/2020. John Peter Von Bank, my husband’s Great Uncle, and Herman Humann were brothers in law.  In February of 1918,  Herman’s younger sister, Mary Catherine, married John.   Herman was a solider in the US Army, stationed at Camp McArthur, Texas.  On October 20, 1918, Herman died from complications of the 1918 Flu.  2 weeks later, November 3, 1918, Mary’s husband, John, met the same fate.  He had been hospitalized with kidney and stomach problems and then the flu.  Mary married again 3 years later, had 8 children and lived to the sunny age of 96.
