I'm trying to get some information on my family. My father was Robert Pfister, born 1922. His father was Frank Pfister, born 1888. Frank's father was John Martin Pfister, born 1855. I and all of the above were born in Cincinnati. I'm trying to find out about John Martin's father, but I'm not having much luck. His death certificate lists parents as "John and Mary" (no maiden name given for Mary). I believe they were the first in the family to move to Cincinnati.
I've also found a Henry Pfister in a local cemetery, died 1903 at the age of 46, with parents listed as "John and Mary". With his age, he could possibly be a younger brother of John Martin, but I have no evidence of anything. Do any of these names sound familiar to anyone?
