Francois LEMAL/LAMAL,Belgium to US 1859

I am researching my g-grandfather Francois LEMAL/LAMAL.
He was born in Belgium about 1822.Both of his parents were
also born in Belgium.

He came to America in 1859 to smelt zinc.He was in Bethelhem,Pa.
and then in Illinois.He married an Lousia (surname unknown)
They had 2 sons born in Cook Co.,Ill.Joseph and Francis (Frank).

My grandfather John Max LEMAL was b. in Newark,NJ Nov.1870.By 1880
Francois and Lousia were living in Bayonne,NJ
and he was still working in zinc smelting.

John Lemal married Mary Frances Cadmus in Bayonne,NJ 1898.
They had 4 children,Leonard,Richard,Mildred,Edith.

I have very little information on my Lemal
ancestors other that what I have found in the 1880 census.

Francois Lemal,b.1821/1822 was dead by 1900
and I have been unable to find his dod or
cemetery where he was buried.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
