Am so stuck. His daughter, my GM, shows no birth or marriage record. Can only find 1915 state census (wife already gone). He did not naturalize, so no record there. Immig. records (1890) burned at Ellis in 1897. Gak!
Looking for any info: origin, wife's name, anything. My GM raised my mom as Catholic, but family "rumor" is that they were Jewish above in that line somewhere. I expect that is true and would be grateful for anything at all - info or ideas. He is not in any Catholic or Jewish cemetery that I have searched.
Children: Edwd (1890), Sophie (1892/3), Catherine (1898), Mary (1899), Gussie ("Constance?"1902), Leo (1904).
