Hello! I am looking for any information about my great-grandfather named John Falk of Newark, NJ.He was born about 1899 and in 1930 he was a postal carrier for the US Post Office.His wife at that time was Lillian (I believe her maiden name was Davis and she was also from Newark.)They had a son named George Falk who was born about 1921.
John Falk's parents were Joseph Falk from Baden, Germany and his mother was also from Germany.Not sure of her first name because there are 4 different names for her on the census lists from 1900-1930.Her first name may be Babette, Barbara, Bertha, or Barbour.They were married about 1897.
My great-grandmother (Lillian Falk) went on to marry a man named George Pfister.Not sure when they were married but it was 1930s, 40s, or so.The story about my great-grandfather (John Falk) was always a big mystery to my family.Growing up we never knew why my grandfather (George Falk) was raised by a man named Pfister and yet his last name was Falk.It seemed that there was a 'secret' that no one talked about.
I can find no information after the 1930 census on this John Falk or his parents.
Any informtion you could pass along would be greatly appreciated!!
