I believe we're related through a Betz connection.

My paternal grandmother, Elvira Margaret Betz (Daily) is listed in the 1930 US census as the daughter of Fred and Elizabeth Betz. She was born in 1921.

Elvira "Vera" married Gordon Henry Daily in June 1941 in Campbell, NE, and lived in Grand Island, NE through the 60's to her death in 2004.

I started genealogy some 30 years ago as a teen and young adult. Spent time with my grandmother to hear stories of her childhood and family. But then put it aside for college, career, and children. Now looking to get back. I'm wondering if we are related. Do any of these names sound as if they are cousins possibly?

Elvira has the following siblings:
Lydia (b 1906); Sarah (b 1909); Reynolds (b 1912); Ruby (b 1918); Elvira (b1921)

I have nothing beyond Fred immigrated to the US in 1886 and married in 1898 to Elizabeth Betz (her maiden was also Betz according to family lore). I don't know their parents' names or other family history.

Any help you have or can point me in a direction would be greatly appreciated.
