My ggrandmother Christina Kreischer was born on Long Island in 1861. My ggrandfather was Edward Hechinger, born in Ulm, Germany around 1836. Christina had a sister Margaret who never married.I can't find anything about their ancestries.All of them died on Long Island. What little information I have found on the Kreischer name in the NYC area is a "Hotel Kreischer", circa 1910 http://www.lihistory.com/tmachine/hs742a.htmhttp://www.lihistory.com/tmachine/hs742a.htm in Hempstead, NY and a "haunted house" named the "Kreischer Mansion". http://www.realhaunts.com/http://www.realhaunts.com/ (click on: New York scroll to Staten Island.)Both references are from the turn of the century era, although the "Mansion" is now reported to be a restaurant.I'm in San Diego and can't go check out any of this info.Does anyone on this forum have anything that would help me out?
