Bette Shaw and Chase Shaw Jr

My name is Terri Sluder and I am looking for family members that are related to Georgia Fern Shaw. She married George Kohl - they lived in Lisbon, Iowa and had a son named Robert T Kohl and one grandson named Robert Trevin Kohl Jr.

I would like to find relatives of Fern Shaw (Kohl) so her family can have her pictures. I just feel these things need to be with family that is left and I just don't have the heart to toss them.  I am sure she had sisters out there somewhere and they have family yet today. My Uncle was a prisoner of war and we have some of his things that need to be placed in a Military museum. 

Georgia Fern Shaw (Kohl) was born 1897 to Isaac Shaw and Jessie G. Simkin. Fern liked to be called by her middle name because she didn’t like Georgia. Fern was well known and liked in that town of Lisbon. She had joined several clubs while living in Lisbon, IA.

My Uncle said, “I do hope u can get back to me on this I hate to throw things away when others could have a chance to find out more about their family tree”.
