Max and Jennie Stitzel arrived in the US approx 1885.
1900 census lists Max born approx 1857, Jennie born approx 1862, with children Herman 18, Rebecca 15, Rose 15, Louis (Leon) 10 born NY and Kate 7 born NY. address 2nd st. Manhattan.
Jennie appears to have died in 1906 in Manhattan.
1910 census finds the family in East 114th St, NY
If I have the right HERMAN - his wife was Sylvia and children Milton and Harriett. - Far Rockaway, Queens. SSDI - Sylvia died Flushing, Queens 1983, Milton died Hamden, New Haven CT. 2002
If I have the right LOUIS - his wife was Sidonia nee Rosenberg with a son Paul from a first marriage, other children Janie and Elliott. Bronx, NY - SSDI - Louis died San Diego CA in 1968, Sidonia died San Diego CA in 1984. Are descendants of Janie, Elliott and Paul still in San Diego?
If anyone knows anything of the above please contact me - as Max is believed to be a long lost brother of my great-grandfather - this would mean a whole new branch of the family found.
