I am very curious here, I am from Chicago, and my Brink's from what I know are too. One day several years ago, I took my son to get a haircut at a barber shop around the corner from my home. While I was there, I was looking, and looking at the barber. Mainly I did this because he was a dead on for my uncle Herb Brink. I looked by his mirror and saw a picture of him in an Army uniform, again, a dead on for my Uncle Herb (also was in Army). I looked a little further over and there was his name (can't recall the first name) BRINK! I said OMG, your last name is Brink? He said yes and I told him about my family. He knew nothing about them, but told me that he had an uncle William Brink years ago that was a Cincinnati Police Officer and that he had been banished from Cincinnati and that he thought he went to Chicago. He knew nothing else about him.
If anyone knows this story or anything similar, or if you are this Barber from Harrison Rd. at Montana Ave. would you please contact me. I will try to see if he (the barber)is still there in the meantime, as I would like to get a picture and more family info from him. This is too big a coincidence for him not to be related some how. Thanks.
