Franz J.A. Torek Family: Germany, NY
I am researching the Torek family, originally of Germany. The furthest back we have information is for Franz J.A. ("Josef Albert?") TOREK, b. ca. 1861, Breslau, Germany, d. 21 Sept. 1938, Vienna, Austria.He emigrated to the U.S. and was a surgeon at the Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City, N.Y. for many years.He married Minnie VOLKENING, and they had the following children:
Margaret "Gretchen" Torek (1895-1959), m. Edwin Stein
Paul Torek (1902-1980)
Franz J.A. Torek had one brother, name unknown.He would have been born in Germany, and probably also emigrated to the U.S., but that is unknown.We have a picture of Franz with his brother and parents, but do not know their names.Would be glad to hear from any relatives.Thanks.
