I am seeking information on my Uncle's father, Benjamin Zipf. He was married to my Grandmother, Pearl Pauling Wurtz, in NY, probably in Erie County..
Pearl's parents were Christian and Beata Pauline (Ehinger) Wurtz.
Beata Pauline Ehinger was born in Canada and immigrated in 1866. Christian Wurtz was born in Illinois in 1844.
Benjamin Zipf's family was apparently from the Ohio area. The family is mostly likely German. He apparently was a piano tuner, who traveled between Chicago, IL and Buffalo, NY. He died of TB fairly young, sometime before 1920.
Benjamin and Pearl Pauline (Wurtz) Zipf had two children. Beata Pauline and Alfred Robert Zipf.
My Grandmother Pearl Pauline (Wurtz Zipf) remarried in 1920, to William Floyd Briggs, In Erie Co, NY.
I am very interested in the Zipf birth certificates mentioned, and corresponding with anyone who might recognize the name Benjamin Zipf.
