Franz Franz clockmaker of Brooklyn
Posted by: John Blair (ID *****1157) Date: August 22, 2009 at 16:09:17

My wife's father's family came to this country in the 1880s from Bavaria and settled in Brooklyn. Her great-grandfather was named Franz Franz. He worked at the Ansonia Clock Factory in Brooklyn as a skilled cabinet maker. His son Joseph Franz worked as an attendant at Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, married Mary Willenski, and had one son, Joseph Franz Jr., who was my father-in-law.
I am looking for any information about Franz Franz, his origins, family, other descendants, etc. that is available.
