203 Circa 1920-1921 Amanda and her husband traveled to Europe to visit their parents.

Amanda and her brother Emil (with her 2 year old daughter Bertha) traveled to Muschaken, East Prussia in late 1923 to visit their mother Louisa. Their US re-entry records are available at www.ellisisland.org under the spelling Fauzak. They sailed from Bremen on 4 Dec 1923 aboard the SS Seydlitz and arrived in New York on 17 Dec 1923. Residences for both Emil and Amanda at that time are shown as West New York. Emil is shown as having entered the US in 1907 and Amanda as entering in 1911. The date of 29 August 1923 also appears on the manifest and may indicate their date of departure on this trip. Both give as a reference Eduard Fauzak, 421 Jackson Avenue, Jersey City NJ. Emil gave his place of birth as Radynim, Poland and Amanda gave hers as Janowska, Poland.

252 Edward (spelled Eduard) entered the United States in 1902 at the age of 16; he traveled with Gottlieb Fausak (b. 1881) and Karl Fausak (b 1866). They sailed on the SS Assyria from Hamburg on 7 Mar 1902 and arrived in New York on 22 Mar 1902; their entry is recorded on the manifest available under the misspelled name Tausak at www.ellisisland.org. They were coming to join their brother Julian, who entered the US the preceding year and whose address was 160 2nd Street (assumed to be New York). They came with $66 between them and listed their residence as Jonowsk, Poland.

According to the 1910 census records, where his name is spelled Frausak, he immigrated in 1901. Last name also spelled Fausack in marriage records of St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Jersey City NJ; birthplace reported in those records as Ebselen, Russia Poland.

He was a witness at marriage of half-brother Gottlieb in 1904 at St. Matthews Church.

His marriage is recorded in Book IV of St. Matthew's records, but the entry was undated. According to that source, Edward was married at the age of 21 in about 1906, he lived at 100 Warren St., Jersey City NJ, and was shown as a laborer. Carl Fausack (sic), Minnie Elmer, and C. B. Rablow (?) were witnesses.

He could read and write according to 1910 census records. Lived at that time at 473 Henderson St., Jersey City NJ.

Owned and operated two commercial bakeries employing >40 people at their height (according to son Edward Louis Fausak Sr. in 1997). He had sold the bakeries by 1945 and retired to Highstown NJ.

Son Edward says that his father's birthdate was 13 August 1886, that he came to America in 1902, and that his birth place was Allenstein, Prussia (now Olyzten, Poland).

Edward Louis Fausak reported in 1997 that his father was diabetic, but was not so diagnosed until after he had lost sight in one eye.

Edward's U. S. passport application in 1920 indicates that he had returned to Poland in July and August 1907.

Edward returned to New York on 6 October 1920 from a European trip, arriving aboard the SS Noordam sailing from Rotterdam (departure on 25 September). He was 33 years old at the time, and his address was 242 Second Street, Jersey City NJ. The manifest shows also that he was naturalized in the City Court of Jersey City NJ in April 1910.

According to son Edward, Edward and Rose and their daughter Emma visited Germany again in 1938. 
FAUSAK, Edward Leopold (I18)
 
253 Edward's birth registration is in the 1919 Nasielsk parish record (no. 18, p. __, LDS film 1,197, 635). Witnesses were Ludwik Sommerfeld (age 37) and Efraim Hein (age 70). Godmother was Natalia Sommerfeld (almost certainly Robert's Fausak's sister Natalia who was married to Ludwig Sommerfeld).

Edward drowned in the Pembina River near Evansburg Canada as a teenager in 1936. The whole community would go to the river on Sundays for picnics, and on that fateful Sunday, Eddie and two friends drowned. The families of the boys were all there. Eddie's family never went to the river again.

258 Emigrated to America in 1907 at the age of 19; according to his son Albert Emil Fausak, he may have jumped ship illegally, but that appears not to be the case. In the naturalization papers of Adolf Rennspies, Emil is shown as arriving on the same vessel, the SS Smolensk, arriving in New York from Rotterdam on 28 June 1907. The Ellis Island are available online at www.ellisisland.org, and the entry for Emil and Adolf can be found there, indexed under Adolf Rewzlis (sic) or Emil Farzak (sic). Both Adolf and Emil listed Edward Fausak (180 Warren Streen, Jersey City NJ) as their American contact or sponsor; significantly, Edward Fausak is listed as "stepbrother" of Adolf Rennspies and brother of Emil Fausak.

His confirmation certificate (the original with Albert Emil Fausak in 1997), shows his birthplace as Brzeziny; his confirmation occurred at the Evangelical Lutheran church in Wola Wodzynska. (He gave his birthplace as Janowke when he entered America in 1907). The confirmation certificate was dated 15 March 1904 and showed his name as Emil Vausack; it was imprinted with a partially legible stamp with the word Przasnysz, a town located to the southeast of Neidenburg (Nidzica, Poland).

Emil related to his children that the Fausak family originated in the Brandenburg region (in or near Berlin), but there was no explanation of when the family lived there or how they came to move to present-day Poland. Emil believed that at that unknown time the family were caretakers on a baron's estate ("Gut Besitzer").

Emil Fausack filed a Declaration of Intention (for US citizenship) in Kings County NY in 1910. The record, which has not yet been accessed, is reported to be on page 259, volume 27 of the Kings County Clerk's Office records (Brooklyn NY).

His marriage at the age of 21 to Ottilie (Adele) was recorded in Book IV of St. Matthew's Lutheran church in Jersey City NJ. He lived at that time at 138 Morris St., Jersey City NJ. Witnesses at the wedding were Ludwig Fausak (i.e., Peter Ludwig Fausak), Bertha Kunkel (Ottilie's sister), Leon Lauck (sic), and Lena Kunkel.

He and his sister Amanda (with her 2 year old daughter Bertha) traveled to Muschaken, East Prussia in late 1923 to visit their mother Louisa. Their US re-entry records are available at www.ellisisland.org under the spelling Fauzak. They sailed from Bremen on 4 Dec 1923 aboard the SS Seydlitz and arrived in New York on 17 Dec 1923. Residences for both Emil and Amanda at that time are shown as West New York. Emil is shown as having entered the US in 1907 and Amanda as entering in 1911. The date of 29 August 1923 also appears on the manifest and may indicate their date of departure on this trip. Both give as a reference Eduard Fauzak, 421 Jackson Avenue, Jersey City NJ. Emil gave his place of birth as Radynim, Poland and Amanda gave hers as Janowska, Poland.

Emil returned to visit his mother Louisa in East Prussia in 1924; he returned to the US on Dec 22 on the North German Lloyd liner SS Columbus. The ship's manifest is available from www.ellisisland.org; it shows his address at that time as 668 Tyler Place, West New York NJ. It also shows that he was naturalized on 14 October 1912 at City Court, Jersey City NJ. There is no indication that he traveled with anyone else.

He returned to Prussia again with his family (wife Adele, son Albert Emil, daughter Bertha, and sisterBertha, and sister-in-law Bertha nee Kunkel Semmler) in 1928. Albert Emil recalls leaving Berlin by chauffeured limosine, driving across the Polish corridor, and passing through the walled cities of Bromberg (Bydgoszcz) and Thorn (Torun); he recalled that people within the city walls were German, those outside were Poles.

Emil bought a farm in Connecticut (where daughter Bertha was born).

The 1930 federal census (Jersey City, Hudson Co, NJ, 12th ward, ED 9-186, SD 6, sheet 17B, 11 Apr 1930) shows the family at 475 Central Avenue in Jersey City, comprising Emil and Adele, Albert, and Bertha. Adele is shown as 3 years older than Emil. Albert was born in New York, and Bertha was born in Connecticutt. Emil is shown as immigrating in 1901, and Adele in 1907. (Adele was reported to have died on 1 Apr 1930, 10 days before the census taker visited their home; why does her name appear on the census?)

Adele died of cancer in 1930. Several months afterward, Emil married again. Emil's son Albert Emil has (in 1997) a large format photograph of the wedding reception for Emil and his second wife Martha Harthaus (nee Schellhorn), who was a widow.

Arriced in the Port of New York on 27 Sep 1935 aboard the S.S. Hamburg ex-Hamburg on 19 Sep 1935. This trip occurred only a few months after his naturalization as a United States citizen. He apparently was traveling alone, and the purpose of this trip is unknown. 
FAUSAK, Emil (I26)
 
259 Emigrated to Brazil in 1910 (fr. Julio Fehlauer Neto, 13 Apr 2000). FEHLAUER, Julius (Julio) (I1896)
 
260 Emigrated to US in 1913 at the age of 27 in advance of his wife Christine and their children Albert and Frieda. The entry register is available at www.ellisisland.org. Karl sailed from Bremen aboard the SS Kleist on 9 April 1913 and landed at Ellis Island in New York on 21 April 1913. He listed his origin as Nowo-Kasimirka, with his nearest relative there his wife Kristine. Karl's sponsor and destination was a friend L. Reimann (?) in Chicago. The same person sponsored Heinrich and Johann Retzlaff, and Gottfried and Martin Drewisch.

Aboard the same vessel in 1913 was Emmanuel Jesswein, also from Nowo-Kasimirka, Poland. Emmanuel was 17 (therefore *1896), whose nearest relative was his fatherCarol (Karl) Jesswein of Nowo-Kasimirka. His sponsor was his brother Gustav Jesswein of Chicago IL, who was also the sponsor of fellow traveler Michael Schultz (listed as a friend).

Several men on the boat were from Nowo-Kasimirka, including Rudolf Pede, Ferdinand Schact, Albert Gahl, Johann and Heinrich Ratzloff, Gottfried and Martin Drewisch (?), Gottfried Pilcha, Michael Schultz, and Heinrich Kurtz. 
JESSWEIN, Karl (I762)
 
261 Emigrated to US in 1921 with Frieda and Albert, 7 years after husband Karl came to US. They sailed from Copenhagen on 22 April 1921 aboard the SS Oscar II and landed in New York on 4 May 1921. Entry register is available at www.ellisisland.org listed under Kristina Jeswein. They showed their town of origin as Nowo-Kasimirka, Kr. Kalisch, Poland, and their nearest relative there as her brother Dinegott Braer. Their final destination in the US was shown as Chicago IL.

Christine was reported to have had a niece named Wanda Heyn. 
BREIER, Christine (I822)
 
262 Emil's first wife died about 6 months after marriage; believed to have contracted tuberculosis. Family F3178
 
263 Emma (Fausak) Jesswein remembered Wanda Nickel visiting in Michigan with her children. Emma was born in 1922, so that visit must have occurred at the earliest in the late 1920's when Wanda would have been in her early 30's.

At the time of her marriage in 1915 at the age of 21 to Edward Nickel, she was living at 71 Sussex Street, Jersey City NJ (same address as Edward Nickel, and also where Gustav Fausak, Richard Fulton Lincoln, Matilda Fausak, and Lydia Caroline Fausak lived).

Witnesses at the marriage were Adolf Lenze, Lydia Fausak, Gustav Fausak, and Pauline Pletz. 
FAUSAK, Wanda (I98)
 
264 Emma and Friederich had no children. Emma lived in Muschaken (East Germany) with her husband until the late war years (1944-1945); Friedrich did not return from the war and Emma and others where forcibly repatriated to Germany. Hattie A. Fausak met with Emma and her sister Bertha in Hamburg? circa 1980.

Albert Emil Fausak remembers that Emma and her husband Freiderich lived in the same house as Louisa Hein Fausak in Muschaken when he visited there in 1928. Bertha Fausak and her husband Edward Rennspies also lived in the same house in Muschaken. 
FAUSAK, Emma (I31)
 
265 Emma died in childbirth. RENNSPIES, Emma (I74)
 
266 Emma Jakobus was born in Klein Schlafken, East Prussia (west of Neidenberg, now Nidzica, Poland). She had three brothers and seven sisters and was said to come from a family of prosperous farmers.

MFG provided a copy of Emma's birth registration to LEF in 1998. 
JAKOBUS, Emma Emilie (I388)
 
267 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. Living (I415)
 
268 Entered the US at the age of 20 on 5 May 1913 aboard the Kronprinz Freidrich Wilhelm from Bremen. Her destination is her sister Helene Radke on Morris Street, Jersey City; her fare was paid by her sister. Her father was shown as resident in Grabie, and may never have immigrated to the US. RADTKE, Lydia (I4060)
 
269 Entered the US in late Jul 1902 aboard the SS Bremen? from Bremen on 8 Jul 1902. The entry record (misspelled Fehlaner) is available at www.ellisisland.org. He entered along with his sister Ottilie Pechtel, her husband Rudolf and their daughter Lydia. The declared destination for all was a brother in law of Rudolf, Johann P_____, in Chicago IL.

Hermann appears seated next to his sister Amalie in a wedding photograph of her marriage to Adolf Fausak taken in Jersey City NJ on 11 Jan 1913.

Hermann was naturalized on 8 May 1913, and was granted a US passport on 14 Jan 1914. He was to travel to Germany on or about 5 Jun 1914 and expected to be gone for about 1 year. On 12 Jan 1916, he was granted a 6-month passport extension by the American Consul in Stettin, Germany. He stated on an affidavit that he was temporarily residing in Deutsch Briesen, Germany where he was helping his father with his farm due to a labor shortage during the war. The affidfavit documented his ties to American as his brother Henry Fehlauer, 5924 La Salle Street, Chicago IL who was a naturalized American citizen. At the time of the affidavit in Jan 1916, he expected to return to the US within 7 months (it is noted that at that time, he had been in Germany 19 months).

Hermann re-entered the US at age 35 in New York in early Sep 1916; he sailed aboard the SS United States from Copenhagen on 24 Aug 1916. He was still single at that time, and listed his home as 133 Morris Street NY (but must have been NJ), an address at which several Fausaks had also resided. He was a US citizen by this time; the entry record shows his passport number (A15615?), and his naturalization process as taking place in the Circuit Court, Cook Co IL, 8 May 1913, #344894.

He is believed by Richard Fausak (in 1999) to have lived in Chicago, and to have had a daughter. Richard remembers Hermann visiting farm in MI circa 1930s. 
FEHLAUER, Herman (I667)
 
270 Entered the US on 2 March 1909 at the age of 18 in the company of Adolf Fausak and others; their last name is mispelled Fansak on the Ellis Island database. She is shown as Adolf's sister, and the daughter of Ludwig Fausak of Janowko, Russian Poland. Her destination was her brother Edward Fausak at 180 Warren Street, Jersey City NJ. This is the only known record of Olga as of 2003. FAUSAK, Olga (I4091)
 
271 Entered United States at age 7, along with older sister (at age 9), on 17 May 1911; sailed on the SS Barbarossa from Bremen. Entry manifest available at www.ellisisland.org listed under Lydia or Reinhold Kretschmann. They apparently traveled wih Adelgunde Pletz (age 18) and possibly other young women from the same area in Poland. Their nearest relative in the old country was listed as grandfather Ludwiga (sic) Fausak of Janüsk (Janufka?, Janowka?), Plock, Russia.

Reinhold Kretchman (sic) appears on the 1930 Federal Census, Jersey City NJ, ED 987, sheet 31A, 7th ward, block 576. He and his wife Anna are living with her family at 322 Russell (?) Avenue. He entered the US in 1907 and was naturalized by 1930. He is shown as a book keeper and Anna is unemployed.

There is a Reinhold Kretchman listed in the SSDI (140-05-2540, issued NJ before 1951), born 1 Jan 1902 and died Jul 1985, who may be the same; last residence of this man was Tom's River, Ocean Co. NJ. 
KRETSCHMANN, Reinhold (I820)
 
272 Entered United States at age 9, along with younger brother (at age 7), on 17 May 1911; sailed on the SS Barbarossa from Bremen. Entry manifest available at www.ellisisland.org listed under Lydia or Reinhold Kretschmann. They apparently traveled wih Adelgunde Pletz (age 18) and possibly other young women from the same area in Poland. Their nearest relative in the old country was listed as grandfather Ludwiga (sic) Fausak of Janüsk, Plock, Russia.

Lydia appears as a young woman (probably in teens) in a photograph of Adolf and Amalie's wedding on 11 January 1913.

She is believed (by Edward L. Fausak Sr. in 1997) to have died when she was still a young woman; that appears to be incorrect. 
KRETSCHMANN, Lydia Albertine (I821)
 
273 Entered with her husband and her brother Hermann; manifest available at ellisisland.org.

Janet Franknecht Synder said in 1996 that her parents moved from Illinois to Michigan and back a number of times.

His last residence (and residence of Edmund's father Heinrich Lenz) was listed as Najow?, Russia; both he and Adele listed the same place as their birthplace. Their destination in the US was cousion Emil Fausak, 48 York Street, Jersey City NJ.

An Adele Fausak's name appears in records of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, Jersey City NJ, but it is unclear who her parents were. Because the Adele listed in St Matthew's was born on 31 Dec 1896, that Adele must be different than this one.

The 1920 census records shows Edward (not Edmund) Lentz and family residing at 100 Morris Street, Jerser City NJ. The family comprised Edward at age 28 (therefore born circa 1892), wife Adele at age 27 (therefore born circa 1893), son Albert at age 5 (born circa 1915), and daughter Olga at age 1 (born circa 1918-1919). Edward and Adele are shown to have immigrated in 1914, and both were aliens in 1920. Neither could read or write according to the census records. Edward was shown as a laborer with the railroad.

The 1930 federal census records show the family on an owned farm on East Town Line (?) Road, Wheatfield Township, Ingham County MI. The handwriting is indistinct but appears to show Edmund (not Edward) at age 40; also listed are Adela (not Adele) at age 39, Albert at age 15, Olga at age 11, Harold at age 6, and Elsie at age 3. Edmund and Adele, and their parents, are shown as originating from Warsaw, Poland. Both Edmund and Adele remained alien nationals as of 1930.

She is listed in the Michigan Death Records as Adela Lentz. 
FAUSAK, Adele (I268)
 
276 Entry to the United States with wife Adele nee Fausak on 8 October 1913, sailing on the SS Imperator from Hamburg on 30 Sep 1913; entry record available at www.ellisisland.org under Edmund Lenz. He was 23 and she was 28 years of age. His last residence (and residence of his father Heinrich Lenz) was listed as Najow, Russia (probably a transliteration of Neuhof, or Nowodwory in Polish, a village located a couple of kilometers NW of Swidry); both he and Adele listed the same place as their birthplace. Their destination in the US was cousin Emil Fausak, 48 York Street, Jersey City NJ.

The 1920 census records shows Edward (not Edmund) Lentz and family residing at 100 Morris Street, Jersey City NJ. The family comprised Edward at age 28 (therefore * 1892), wife Adele at age 27 (therefore * 1893), son Albert at age 5 (*1915), and daughter Olga at age 1 (*1918-1919). Edward and Adele are shown to have immigrated in 1914, and both were aliens in 1920. Neither could read or write according to the census records, but both could speak English. Edward was shown as a laborer with the railroad.

The 1930 federal census records show the family on an owned farm on East Town Line (?) Road, Wheatfield Township, Ingham County MI. The handwriting is indistinct but appears to show Edmund (not Edward) at age 40; also listed are Adela (not Adele) at age 39, Albert at age 15, Olga at age 11, Harold at age 6, and Elsie at age 3. Edmund and Adele, and their parents, are shown as originating from Warsaw, Poland. Both Edmund and Adele remained alien nationals as of 1930. 
LENZ, Edmund Emil (I271)
 
277 Ernest Fausak's delayed Record of Birth shows Amalia's birthplace as Kovel, Russia. A birth certificate (issued in 1906 when she was 17 years old) shows her birthplace as Stanislowow, Kries Kovel, Wolhynien. Amalie's godparents were shown as Ludwig Busse and Amalie Rode.

In 1999, RF had Amalie's original birth and baptism certificate (photocopied by LEF). Even though the document is an original, it was not completed until 1906 when Amalie was 17 years old. It may be that the document was required for Amalie to leave Stanislowow, Volhynia and return to live in Pelsen (or Polsen) Germany until emigrating to America in 1912 at the age of 23.

According to family lore, Adolf Fausak was said to have returned to Germany in 1912 to bring his bride-to-be to America aboard the SS Kronprinzessin Cecilie, which sailed from Bremen Germany. The vessel arrived at the Port of New York on 4 Dec 1912; Amalie's entry record can be seen but Adolf's can not. (It may be that he did not in fact sail with her.) She was detained and then discharged to the Traveler's Aid Service, suggesting that no one met her arrival. Her destination was her "half-brother" Adolf Fausack (sic) at 142 Morris Street in Jersey City. (The original entry said "brother"; the "half" was added later in another hand.) Amalie's relative in Europe is shown as her father Jacob Fehlauer of Briesen, Posen, Germany.

Amalie married Adolf Fausak in Jersey City NJ on Jan 1913. Her brother Hermann Fehlauer attended her wedding and apparently preceded her to America.

Her first name is also spelled Amalia. Her last name (as given on her daughter Ottilie's death certificate in 1916) appears as Fehlau, confirming numerous other instances where Fehlau and Fehlauer were used interchangeably.

Amalie's SS number was 366-68-5335 (issued in MI). On her SS application filled out in 1972, she spelled her mother's name as Reimer and her father's name as Jokub, and listed her birth place as Volina, Russia (Volhynia).

Amalie was naturalized as an American citizen in Berrien County MI on 17 May 1946 (petition number 3551). Witnesses were Natalie Pechtel and Rheinhold Schmaltz. Natalie Pechtel was married to a brother of Rudolph Pechtel (Amalie's brother-in-law) of St. Joseph MI. RF had the original of Amalie's Certificate of Naturalization (no. 6477969) in 2001. 
FEHLAUER, Amalie (I4)
 
278 Ernest's baptismal certificate, dated 3 Dec 1916, shows his godparents as Lydia Pechtel and Hermann Fehlauer (niece and brother of his mother Amalie). The pastor was listed as A. J. Buenger, St. Stephens Evangelical Lutheran Church, Engelwood IL.

Ernest graduated from the 8th grade in Berrien County MI; LEF has the graduation certificate.

His SS application, filled out on 25 Nov 1936 when he was 21 years old, shows his residence as 6520 S. Lowe Ave., Chicago IL; he was employed at that time by The Linde Air Products Company, 3633 S. Wall St., Chicago IL. His father's name is shown as Adolf and his mother's as Amealia.

Moved with his wife and 3 children from Michigan to California in 1949, and resided in the Los Angeles area for the remainder of his life.

Ernest flew from Los Angeles to Chicago on 24 April 1979 to visit his family, and was to have returned on 6 May. He had a heart attack while in Chicago and died on 8 May.

280 Ewald enlisted as a Private in the Army Air Corps in Detroit MI on 16 Jan 1942.

Ewald was in the U. S. Army at the time of his marriage to N. S. Buggeln.

SS# 369-14-5014 (MI). His SS application filled out on 13 Sep 1938 shows his name as Ewalt, his residence as RFD 2, Bridgeman MI; it showed him as unemployed. He spelled his father's name Adolph and his mother's name as Emelia.

282 Family tradition is that Anna followed her husband Carl from Germany; he was believed to have come in 1894 and she (with three children Vanda, Gus, and Ledia) in 1898. That tradition does not appear consistent with the birth of Gustav in 1896 or Ledia in 1899; her son Gustav gave his birthplace in the 1930 federal censuses as New York, and his marriage record in 1918 also states that he was born in the US.

The 1930 federal census records show that Anna entered the US in 1902, the same time as her husband Carl.

Anna's maiden name is variously spelled as Kuhn, Kehn, Keane, or Keen in records of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, Jersey City NJ.

Records of 1910 census (incorrectly?) show Anna as born in 1865. Her birthplace was shown in her death registry at St. Matthew's as Germany. The 1920 census records show her as 51 years of age; therefore born in 1869; birthplace shown as Poland.

Her death and burial are recorded in Book VII, p 279 of St. Matthew's; she was survived by her husband, 5 sons, and 2 daughters. She had three daughters, Wanda, Lydia, and Matilda; we do not have death dates for Wanda and Matilda and it may be that one of them preceeded her in death.

Her grave in Bayview Cemetery is reported to show her maiden name as Keane, b. 1866, d. 1932.

293 Frank W and Ann L Fausak were listed in the Volusia County FL court clerk records as selling a townhouse in New Smyrna Beach in Dec 1995. The property was Sugar Mill Golf Townhouses, unit 149, block 8; it was sold for $29,750.

Listed in "The Standard Times" newspaper on 720 Jul 2002 under Property Transfers: property at 2 Beech Wood Rd., Mattapoisett MA sold by Ann L. Fausak to John P. and Elizabeth B. Oldham, $380,000.

Perhaps husband Frank had died by that time. 
MASCONE, Anne L. (I705)
 
294 Frank was living with his sister Lydia Fausak and her husband William Buggeln at the time of the 1930 Federal Census.

At the age of 27 he married Eleanore in St. Matthew's Church, and lived at 1505 Smith Street, North Bergen NJ, and was a utilityman. Herman Fausak was one of several witnesses (Book VII, p 558, St Matthew's).

SS# 141-09-9717 (NJ); last residence 07047. He filled out a SS application form on 2 Dec 1936, and showed his address as 1925 Bergen Wood Road, North Bergen NJ. He was employed at that time (when he was 33) by American Elevator & Machine Corp., 115-117 Cedar St., NY City NY. He showed his mother's surname spelled as Kean.

Brief History of the Fausak Family as I Know It
by Edward L. Fausak Sr.
(written ca. 1994 for Ronald Friedrich Fausak and Vera Alberta Parker nee Fausak)

I was born March 27, 1913 in Jersey City NJ.

Don't remember much until the soldiers came home in 1918, at the end of World War I. At that time Pop had a bakery at 421 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, and I remember a parade for which Pop bought a Welcome Home flag, and we have a picture of the store with me standing in the entrance.

At this time, there were quite a few Fausak families in the general vicinity of Jersey Avenue and they were attached to a Lutheran Church, whose pastor was named Bavandam - had a fight with his son shortly after we attended.

There were several families headed by uncles as follows:

1. Uncle Albert - the oldest. He had several children but I only remember cousins Gus and Wanda.
2. Uncle Gottlieb, lived at 164 Mercer, and had cousin Albert “Lanky” (your father), Lou (sons Edward and Ray), cousin Fred killed in the Battle of the Bulge, and cousin Willie.
3. Uncle Emil - cousin Al.
4. Uncle Louie - no children.
5. Aunt Martha - 2 boys.
6. Aunt Manda - 3 girls.
7. Uncle Adolf - moved to Michigan. Children Elsa, Ewald, Adeline, Richard.

We lived with Tante and Uncle Kretschmann in Bayonne for a short time until Pop bought a bakery/lunch room on Jackson Avenue. Business was a great success as a bakery/lunch room and he decided to sell. He picked the wrong broker and the oven was included in the sale, unfortunately - the oven was part of the building and thus a period of Court action.

At this time we were in touch with all of the relatives but especially with Uncle Gottlieb and the cousins, except Lanky who left Altman's and moved top the Syracuse area.

The relationship was changed in 1923, when Pop bought a bakery in Hightstown NJ. The relatives were most critical of Pop's action. Who would sell bakery products to farmers? They predicted a failure and a return to Jersey City - attitude did not change until 1930, when Pop built a new plant with all new equipment.

The bakery had a retail route into the country on an every-other-day basis and was run by Chet Wolfe - Sundays we took the shelves out and Chet taught Pop how to drive the 1923 Dodge truck. Pop made the business a success even though the owners had faked the sales and was waiting for Pop to back out.

When he could drive, Pop bought a used 1923 Studebaker open sedan with curtains and built like a battleship. One night, he knocked the ice off the fenders with a 15 lb maul. Soon we were making the trip to Mercer Street and to see Uncle Look and Tante Manda. Uncle Look had a bakery on Hudson Blvd. Had three daughters, Bertha, Emily, and Natalie. It was an experience to drive there - the only markers for Route 1 were on the telephone poles - just painted bands on the poles - difficult in daylight but worse at night.

At this time, there were four cousins about the same age - Emil's Al, Gottlieb Willie, and Adolf's Ewald, Big Ed and Little Ed (as I was called). We were well acquainted with each other until Uncle Emil died from an infection which would be nothing today.

I was fortunate in that Pop made the business a success - soon had 10 routes out into the country around Hightstown - and the fact that Hightstown had an excellent school system, even though we went to school in two bungalows on Morrison Avenue. Was accepted in Princeton University in 1930 and graduated in 1935.

Cousin Al didn't get along with his stepmother, got married and moved to Delaware, became President of a subsidiary of Mrs. Smith's Pies. Haven't heard from him in years - last I heard he was not well. Cousin Willie knew more about him than I do as the last time I saw him was at Lou and Sue's funeral after the train accident.

Cousin Al - after he moved to upstate New York - saw him at the above funeral and exchanged cards until he and Vera passed away.

Cousin Ewald was a crew chief in World War II. Lived in Stevensville with Norma his wife. Saw him at Pop's funeral in 1965 - exchanged cards for years. Lost a daughter with a heart replacement and he passed away in December 1991.

Returning to me - after graduating from Princeton in 1935, worked with my father in Hightstown. Pop and Emma, my sister, went to Germany in 1938 and visited relatives, as Ewald had done after the war.

In May 1941, we bought a bakery in Freehold NJ and was mine to run. Ran the bakery with good help from the bakers and sales girls, Mrs. White and Mrs. Evold, until June 1942 when I was drafted into the Army. Had 42 months of service but none overseas, so no points, and in the summer of 1943 Pop and Emma could not count on my return so they sold the bakeries.

Marion and I were married July 1, 1945 at Moody Field, Valdosta GA - we had met at Mitchell Field NY.

Was discharged February 6, 1946 and for a time lived with her family at Hempstead NY.

Knew Pop was so desirous of getting back into the bakery business, even though diabetes had cost him an eye. So I got a job in April 1946 with a supermarket chain in Philadelphia - was a mess - never could do enough. Quit and we went to Bermuda for a honeymoon. What a deal - $140 for the cruise; stayed in a private home for $3.50 a night including breakfast.

Had an apartment at 1420 W. Allegheny Ave. in Philadelphia but had to move as our son Edward was coming along. Moved to Haverstown PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. Had a job with National Cylinders as a salesman. Edward was born March 10, 1949, We moved in January 1949 and lived there 44 years. Was lucky that even though I worked for a national company and moved to several offices, never had to change homes.

Melanie, our daughter, was born December 10, 1955. She met Andy at Lafayette and they married June 18, 1977. I retired October 1, 1976 and have been happy doing so.

Melanie and Andy moved six times and now live in Cranbury NJ.

Ed graduated from Duquesne and married an lives in Abilene Kansas.

We have been lucky and traveled years ago when costs were better. Have been to Europe, South America, Africa, and cruised to the Islands and south Pacific. So we do have some good memories.

Been fortunate in health, too, even though a mild heart attack in 1981 did set me back. Marion had a gall bladder operation in 1991 and was coming along but now appears to be losing her memory. So in the Fall of 1992, we decided we would sell our home and go to a retirement community. Had two choices, one in Haverford PA and one at Hightstown NJ. So we decided on Meadow Lakes, Etra Road, Hightstown NJ 08520, as Melanie is only 10 minutes away. Established for past 27 years, beautiful grounds, all covered walkways for bad weather, excellent library, health care here, good meals, excellent programs for physical therapy, excellent library - good stuff. We have a living room, bedroom, kitchenette, and bath. Visitors such as family can stay with Melanie or an excellent guest house. Feel we will be happy here - security and healthcare. Marion still not happy here - misses her old home with lots of space. Design of rooms good with an unbelievable amount of closet storage and considering the size of the apartment.

Note added at later time: Marion passed away January 5, 1995. She did live long enough to see (her grandson) ARJ on Christmas Eve, 1994.
