    Notes 
    • Carl entered the United States in 1902 at the age of 36; he traveled with his brothers Gottlieb Fausak (b. 1881) and Eduard Fausak (b 1886). 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 had entered the US the preceding year and whose address was 160 2nd Street (no city given but assumed to be New York). They came with $66 between them and listed their residence as Jonowsk, Poland.

      Carl was a witness at the marriage of his half-brother Edward Fausack (sic) and Rosina Antonia Wittlieb at St. Matthews Church in Jersey City NJ in 1906.

      According to the 1910 federal census (where the surname is spelled Fausek, and Carl is spelled Carrol), he immigrated to America 1894; his wife Anna and three children (Wanda, Gus, Ledia) followed in 1898. Records of 1910 census shows Carl (spelled Carrol) of age 45, therefore born in 1865 (at which time his father Ludwig would have been 18 years old). Address in 1910 census was on Morris Street, Jersey City NJ.

      The 1920 census records (Jersey City, 1st Ward, ED 110), however, show his age as 51, making his birth year 1869. In 1920, Carl and his family lived in rented quarters at 71 Sussex Street in Jersey City NJ. The family comprised Carl and Anna, and their children Litta (presumably Lydia, age 21, *1899), Frank (age 16, *1904 in Michigan), Charles (age 14, *1906 in New York), Albert (age 11, *1909 in New Jersey), and Herman (age 9, *1911 in New Jersey). Carl, Anna, and Lydia are shown as aliens (and therefore born outside of the US). Daughter Matilda does not appear on the 1920 census; she was married in 1918, at the age of 18, to Richard Fulton Lincoln and presumably had moved from the family home.

      Carl's death and burial notice appeared in Book VII, p 309 of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church registry; he was survived by 5 sons and 2 daughters.

      He was known during his lifetime to the younger members of the family as Uncle Charley.
