    There is only one family in the 1940 US census named Rotolone.

    The California Marriage Index shows Dawn D. Reinke marrying Joseph E. Rololone (almost certainly a typo, as there is no listing anywhere else for anyone with the last name Rololone) on 7 Jan 1967 in Los Angeles City.


    Searching the 1930 Census for Dawn D. Reinke gives us the daughter of Christian A. (b. c. 1881) and Blanche. B. Reinke (b. c. 1885). She has a brother named C. Alanson Reinke who is 9 years older, b. c. 1912. Parents are both born in Wisconsin, Alanson in Montana and Dawn D. in Minnesota. Her father is a barber. They live in Virginia, St. Louis Co, MN in 1930. Parents were married c. 1909. Parents and Alanson are in the same town in 1920.

    The Minnesota Birth Index confirms that Dawn Durfey Reinke is born Jan 4, 1921 in St. Louis County, mother's maiden name is Brown. This middle name assures us that we are following the correct family.

    Findagrave.com shows us that her parents are both buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.
    Plot: Col. of Memory, Memorial Terrace, Lot 0, Space 19642. This implies perhaps the whole Reinke family moved to California.

    Searching for her brother, C. Alanson Reinke, we find in the Duluth, MN, City Directory of 1940 that his wife's name is Suzanne.

    The California Death Index shows Christian A Reinke Social Security #: 471100503 Gender: Male Birth Date: 2 Mar 1912 Birth Place: Montana Death Date: 10 Nov 1956 Death Place: San Bernardino Mother's Maiden Name: Brown Father's Surname: Reinke

    The California Voter Registrations show that Christian A. Reinke consistently lives at the same address as K. Suzanne Reinke.

    Note that the birth year, place, wife's name and mother's maiden name all match Dawn's brother, C. Alanson, and that their father's name was Christian, making this very likely Dawn's brother Alanson.

    California Death Index shows us Suzanne's death, and that her surname is Lestrange:
    Name: Katherine Suzanne Reinke
    [Katherine Suzanne Lestrange] Social Security #: 470070124 Gender: Female Birth Date: 28 Apr 1914 Birth Place: Minnesota Death Date: 2 Aug 1993 Death Place: Orange Mother's Maiden Name: Leroy Father's Surname: Lestrange

    Family tree records on Ancestry.com verify this marriage as being the couple from Minnesota.

    Looking at the California Birth Index for births to a father named Reinke and a mother named Lestrange, we find:

    William Arthur Reinke 30 Jul 1944 Male Lestrange Los Angeles
    Richard Lestrange Reinke 16 Mar 1946 Male Lestrange Los Angeles

    Intelius verifies that both William A. Reinke and Richard L. Reinke are related to Suzanne Reinke.

    William Arthur Reinke is a pilot and his address is easily found in the certified pilot's database. He is very likely a nephew of Dawn, son of her brother C. Alanson Reinke. Richard appears to still be living, also.
