The pages below show Francis R. Korns to be a member of the Iowa Bar Association in 1921. Here is what the 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania" says about Francis R. Korns:

"Francis R. Korns, graduated in Law at Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa, in 1899, and practiced there nine years when he was elected treasurer of the Modern Woodmen for a term of three years, handling thirty million dollars without a loss of a dollar. He was then elected a Director and has that office since. He is also a regent of Drake University. He was born 1873."

If I understand the Korns book correctly, Francis R. Korns was the son of Joseph Korns and his wife Martha (Moore) Korns, and was the grandson of William Korns; William was the youngest son of Michael Korns, Sr.
