The obit was from those mentioned in the results for the search on the name of Lawrence Merk, on www.fultonhistory.com. It's a free web site, and contains lots of good citations. He died with but one daughter (see below), and two of his sisters never married and had issue.
Fultonhistory shows Magdalena selling some property to a Rosa Glaser in 1931.

A census record for Rosa Glaser in Rochester in 1920 reads:

Ancestry has a family tree (http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/42952001/family?cfpid=1986142...) for Geraldine (Birth 1901 in New York, Death 1999 in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut, USA) as the daughter of Lawrence. She married Willard Anthony Krayer 1897 – 1973. There are indicated two children (daughters, no name given, one married a William C Burr, 1921-2009). That Burr marriage had a daughter, and that daughter had a daughter. the names are all "private" on the tree. But another has different information: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/43979630/family?cfpid=1273117..., which conflicts.

* which leads us to:

Social Security Death Index about Robert L. Glaser

Perhaps there is an obit for him with survivors.
