I am looking for info on a very elusive woman. Her children's death/marriage certificates list her as either Rachel Black, Blaich, or Blake. All list Germany as place of birth, so I am betting it was really Blaich. She was married to Philip Schunk. He was from NY-Brooklyn I am told, but they both - at some point - moved & lived in Newark, NJ. My Great Grandmother's notes list her as dying on June 25, 1892. She would have been born bet 1855-1856. I don't know when they married but have a good lead. Another of Philip Schunk's sons lists Frederika Brietenbach as his mother. Philip may have been married also to this lady - or this is the same lady? Philip is definitely buried in the Lutheran Cemetery in Queens within the Brietenbach plot. I can't find a death cert for either a Rachel (Black/Blaich) Schunk or Frederika (Breitenbach) Schunk. I don't live in NY, so cannot check the cemetery if it has Frederika there & if so when she died. Interestingly, the LDS site lists a Philip Schunk marrying a Frederika Blaich in 1874. Right husband, town & timeframe - but the woman is a mix of the 2 different ladies found on the children's death/marriage certs. Anyone with Blaich info, especially from Brooklyn or Newark areas, I would really appreciate the assistance.
