Brother Gustav was also a baker aboard a ship (which he jumped ship and got into the USA) He was in USA before my grandfather, Otto. Gustav Joseph POHL was born 21 May 1888. I am told he baked a cake for a celebration of Govenor Smith of New York sometime between 1920's-1935. Eventually they both owned a bakery in South Amboy, NJ named Broadway Bakery and a Bakery in Milltown, NJ named Pohl Brothers Bakery.
