I have Joseph Tyres and Nellie Brickhouse on the 1910 Census, NY, Nassau county, Hempstead Twp. T 624-995 listed with his children:Lindeth, Joseph, Violet, Wille and Frank.
I have John Klein and Emma on the 1930 census, NY, Kings county, Brooklyn Borough, Block F, T 626-1535. Emma was 57 on this census.
My mother-in-law is Ruth Brass Klein.She is still with us and has told us many stories (which I wish I had written down). Her parents were in the Washington, DC and the NY areas (kids were born in both areas).There is supose to be blackfoot indian in the family line, but I am not sure if it is from the Klein line or the Brass line.
Anything you have would be greatly appreciated. Once my mother-in-law is gone all the history will be lost.As it is now, she has forgotten a lot about her and her husbands family.. a loss to be sure.
I can email you with any other information I have or come up with if you'd like.Please feel free to email me at any time.
