It seems there is more to this story. Albert married Caroline Louise Genrich (also seen spelled Jenrich). While in Germany Albert Jr. was born. His birth place is listed as Schlave (newspaper typo?) Germany (12/05/1878). They immigrated when he was three. His dad, Albert Sr., was a brewmaster when he immigrated.
Caroline was born to Ludewig and Louise Stillman Genrich on 01/18/1848 at Karwitz, Schlawe, Province of Pomemran, Germany.
Albert Sr. and Caroline were married 10/02/1873. It is reported they had six children-I know of five. Albert R. (Jr.), Otto, William (my great grandfather), Esther, and Charles (died WWII France).
