I know very little about my g-grandfather, Otto Pabst. I believe that he was born in Hamburg c.1870. His family may have been ship builders. By the early 1890's, he is living in NYC and married to Auguste Peyer from Stettin, Germany. They have 2 sons: Walter b. 1895 and John (Johannes) b. 1898. Otto then deserts his family and disappears. It is possible that he remarries and has more children. Does anyone have Pabst relatives from the Hamburg area?
