John is supposed to have been born December 1860. His death certificate says that his father's name was Frank. In Baltimore, he worked as a Confectioner, a Fireman, an Oiler and then became a Lunch Room Proprietor. He married Mary Stein from Germany and they had eleven children. I am attaching his picture.
If anyone has any information about the family or any suggestions as to what the original surname could be, please write me back at: [email protected]
