Koch family from Glendale/Long Island, Queens, New York early 20th century
I am looking for any family members of this Koch family.
- Andrew C. (Clements/Clemence) Koch, from Germany, born 1868, immigrated 1880s
- Elizabeth Koch, from Germany, from Germany, born 1868, immigrated 1880s
- Elizabeth Koch, born 1891
- Otto Koch, born February 29, 1896 and died July 15th, 1918 in World War One. Buried in Flanders Field Cemetery, Belgium.
- Magdeline Koch, born 1899
- Adeline Koch, born 1902
- Margaret Koch, born 1903
- Bertha Koch, born 1906
- Anna Koch, born 1908
- Marie Koch, born 1912
- Herman Koch, born 1915
- Henry Koch, born 1916 or 1818
Maybe a Caroline Koch, but I'm not sure.
I know that Otto was born at home and the family still lived at that address when he died: 91 Ford Avenue, Glendale, Queens County, New York.
In 1930, his mother went on the Gold Star Mother's Pilgrimage to visit her son.
In 1937, the family lived in 9725 221 St Street, Queens Village, New York. Only Henry lived at home at this time and they also had a boarder named Frank Roddings, born around 1913. In 1937, the Andrew and Elizabeth had ten children and sixteen grandchildren.
I would love to know any more about any of these people from the Koch family. I'm interested to see if there are any descendants alive today. Unfortunately, I have no idea who the girls married and who the sixteen grandchildren are.
My reason for looking for this family is that I adopted the grave of Otto Koch in Belgium and would like to know if he has any living relatives today.
