The son Peter of Peter Froehlich and Emma Frey was my Great Uncle. He moved from Queens to Long Island. We understood that he never married. He was considered slow of mind. Not retarded, just slow. He was very tall, had thick lips, wore glasses and had huge hands. I remember him as very quiet, shy. A gentle giant. One of his sisters was my grandmother, Catherine Emma Ryan, nee Froehlich. The other sister was Eleanor. An older brother from the first marriage was Frederick. He may have fathered a child out of wedlock that nobody knew about. It's worth looking into. I have two living relatives I can ask. His neice and a grand neice.
