    Notes 
    • There seems to be much confusion among the descendants of Dorothy Kunze (sister of Roland Kunze) as to whether or not "Uncle Roe" was christened Roland Paul or Paul Roland. Until this can be verified by some official document, this compiler of the family genealogy will use "Roland Paul Kunze" as the proper name for this individual. (DJW, 1998).

      According Roe's niece, Margaret Wallace Weisenberger, Roe had an illegitimate child sometime in the 1930s. Nothing is known of this child by any surviving Kunze descendants in this family.
