George Splanger was the stepfather of Jessie Blanche Rager Benshoff. Her mother was Della. Blanche's sister, Vera, is listed on her Find A Grave as a Rager. Blanche's father was William J. Rager (1866-1894). He is buried in Benshoff Hill Cemetery, Johnstown. Memorial #98002283.

If you check the 1900 and 1910 Federal Census you will find George listed as Jessie Blanche's stepfather. I see that in the attached obituary, George is listed as her father. That is understandable since her biological father died before she was born.
