My Grandmother's name was Gesina Brunjes....I believe she was born in Muenden, Hannover, Germany. I also believe she came to the US as a young girl and worked in a hotel or beer hall in either Long Island or N.Y.C. cleaning floors. She married John Schwetje in Hoboken, NJ, in about 1885...she died in Jersey City, NJ in 1940. My mother, Lucy, was one of her children.
