I am looking for and (hopefully) providing some useful information about a John Koller, who was my GG grandfather. This is what I know: He invented the coal chute in the late 1800s, and had a thriving business in Newark NJ called "Koller Iron Wroks & Patent Coal Chutes". I forget the name of his wife, but they went on to have 3 children, 2 of which, Ella and Frieda, became well known yodelers and performers. Ella was a member of the White Rats. Any further information anyone has would be great!
