I found this item:

The Nevada Daily Mail

Champ’ on Billiardist Passes Away in the Republic of Mexico
Grand Rapids, Mich., Aug 31

A telegram received by Dr. J. D. Peters, father-in-law of Frank Ives the…

I was unable to find a family tree for this rich young man but I did find a small item which confirms the obituary’s information about being a champion billiardist.

Maybe someday someone will read this little item and claim him for their tree.

Thank You.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
