Re: Fleckenstein: Krombach to Baltimore

In Reply to: Fleckenstein: Krombach to Baltimore by Sean Murphy of 147

I believe I have a link for you!

My great-grandfather, Adam Fleckenstein, hailed from (sp?) Aufchaffenburg in Bavaria. He came to the U.S. in the mid-1800s via the port of Baltimore. My family is from Bavaria, from a town called Aufchaffenberg (spell?).
He was a very well-known and well-respected business man who ran a tavern in Baltimore city on Chase Street called Fleckenstein's Tavern. It was a very popular establishment, and people (generally very old senior citizens who frequented the tavern) still stop my dad and ask if he is related to Adam. Incidentally, Adam received beer permit #1 in Maryland after the Prohibition. Family lore has it that he provided the city's influential with bootleg booze during Prohibition, and was duly rewarded after! I know Adam had siblings, but I cannot recall names or how many except for a sister named Theresa, who married a man with the last name Voelker. Adam and his wife, Margaret Mueller, had two daughters, Marie and Sophie, and sons named James and Michael, in addition to my grandfather, George Sr. George Sr. married Catherine Breuning, and they had two children, Marianne Fleckenstein Diacont and George Jr. (my father).

I spoke with my Aunt Marianne, who tells me that someone from the Rosenberger family contacted her early last fall because he traced his family to ours. Feel free to contact me, and we can try to piece this together.
