Question  - "My Great Grandfather was John Rockefeller Printz, and I think he was from Liberal, Kansas. At least I know he was there when my Father and Grandfather built houses in Liberal after WWII. John was old at that time. Do you know if our family is part of your clan?

Answer - Bad news, good news.  Bad news - The book does not have any mention of the name "Rockefeller."  That could have been nice on so many levels.  Good news - the book does mention a "John Rockwell Printz" in Liberal, Kansas, so I am guessing that is probably a match.  Good luck with your research and let us know if you find anything interesting. - Victor
