Under the shade of a large maple tree, the Riehle family cousins reunited on Friday morning to right a troubling wrong. The cousin’s grandmother, Frances Riehle, had taken two of her children Christmas shopping on Dec. 20, 1921. She was holding each child by their hands and the three had just stepped off the University Avenue trolley and onto the busy street. John Riehle says that suddenly, and sadly, the story took a tragic turn.
Racine police are baffled over a 123-year-old gravestone that mysteriously turned up in someone’s driveway last year.
