In Reply to: Remy Schrank, Brooklyn, NY by Joseph Schrank of 56

My maternal grandfather was George Schrank, older brother to Remy & Eugene Schrank. He and his wife, Elizabeth (Apol) lived in Ridgewood NJ for many years until failing health brought them to live with us in Rochester NY.

George Schrank owned Schrank Plumbing & Heating Co. in NYC, which was the foremost plumbing company of it's time and handled many of the top jobs in NYC.

George & Elizabeth (aka "Lizzie") had one daughter, Dorothy, who was my mother.

I have several old photos of Eugene & Remy both with and without George in them.

Strangely, while there is quite a bit of info on Elizabeth's family (Apol), there was never much discussion on the Schrank side of the family. In fact, I've just learned the names of his siblings through yesterday and came across your 9 yr. old message today. Hope you're still receiving emails and we can exchange info.
