Patrick,

There is a Daniel K. Schlorf listed in the telephone book in Oak
Park, just a few miles east of where the Daniel K. Schlorf was living
in 1958 at the time of the marriage of Michael Enright's daughter Nancy.

That current address is:
210 N Kenilworth Apt 8, Oak Park Il 60302
phone 708-445-1124
