Amelia Bruns (b 4/11/1891 on Bond Street in Elizabeth, NJ - d. 11/8/1975) was my great grandmother.Her parents were William Bruns and Amelia Meyer (according to her SS application).Information I have is that Mary was her half sister - she married Joseph Dillworth and they had a son George.
Children of Albert and Anna are: Gerard Bruns (married Eleanor)- Gerard was one of my grandmother Marie Amelia Sullivan Salvato's favorite cousin Albert Bruns Delores Bruns
I haven't been able to track down any information further back yet - I just started doing this a month or so ago - but did get a look up against the 1900 NJ survey.Information I received was as follows:
WIlliam Bruns age 63.Nov 1826 from Germany living at 261 Broadway - Elizabeth, Union ED #97 s.27 1.64 Emily - 51 - Dec. 1848 - Germany Marie - 14 - Mar. 1886 - J Lena - 12 - Jan. 1888 Emily - 9 - Oct. 1890 Albert - 7 - Jul 1892 Bickle, August - sl - 27 - Mar 1873 Bickle, Barbara - d - 23 - Feb 1877 Bickle, August - gs - 9/12 - Sept 1899
Doesn't seem to fit with our family.
I can give you more history on the spouses & children of Amelia if you would like.
