Brooklyn Standard Union of June 23 1928. Accompanied Captain In Albany Avenue Fire Gustave R. MERKER, fireman first grade, of Engine Company 234, 1472 Bergen street, recipient of the Thomas A. KENNY Medal and the department
medal for the heroic performance of duty at extreme personal risk in the rescue of Marguerite NEARY, 8 years old, from the bedroom on the second floor of her home at 231 Albany avenue, Jan. 2, 1927. By the time MERKER was ready to leave for the street the rooms were so filled
with smoke and so hot from fire that it required extraordinary efforts and endurance to reach a place of safety. I am not related & have no other info.
