    Roger Halm
    Last Residence: 90502 Torrance, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
    Born: 27 Jul 1939
    Died: 25 Dec 1998
    State (Year) SSN issued: New York (1956-1957)


    The 1940 census shows only two Roger Halms, and only one of those in NY, at 105 Connelly Ave, Elmira, Chemung County:
    Edward, b. c 1913 head
    Belma, b. c. 1916 wife
    Elaine, b. c. 1934
    Edward Jr, b. c. 1938
    Roger, b. c. July 1939

    All family members were born in NY.

    A family tree from OneWorldTree shows the mother as Velma Lawson (which would explain Roger's alias). It shows his sister Elaine 1) Joseph Raub and has Deborah, Jennifer, Joseph Michael, and Shane, and later marries Henry Shelanskey.

    In 1986, Elaine M. Shelanskey, with a birth date matching above, was living on Hoffman St, Elmira, NY.

    The father, Edward, is found in the 1930 census living with his own parents, Charles and Amy Halm, and sister Irene Held, b.c. 1910.

    Edward dies Sep 1984 in Elmira. His sister Irene, (Roger's aunt) died just 3 years ago at the age of 99. Her obituary says

    She was preceded in death by her husband, Clifford A. Spencer in 1975; and her parents, Charles and Amy Halm; and brothers, Claude and Edward Halm. She is survived by a daughter, Dawn (Spencer) Huckle; and son-in-law, John Huckle of Santa Maria, California; and by son, Duane Spencer and wife, Beth of Redding, California. She is also survived by grand-daughters, Susan Huckle, and Michelle and Suzanne Spencer, all of California. Also surviving are her nieces, Irene Glaspie of Tacoma, WA, and Elaine Shelansky of Elmira, NY; nephew, Bob Halm of Rochester, NY....

    Roger/Benjamin's sister, Elaine is listed above as still in Elmira. Note that Shelanskey, with an e before the y, appears to be the correct spelling of her last name. Her phone number is listed on whitepages.com. If that doesn't work out, Dawn and Duane, above, would be first cousins to Roger/Benjamin.
