NOTES: William Gleitsmann immigrated to Baltimore about 1857. He gave his place of birth as "Sachsen-Altenburg," which was a duchy in present-day Thuringia. He and his wife, Elizabeth (Tiefel) Gletismann, opened a second-hand store on Canton Avenue in East Baltimore that eventually evolved into a furniture business. They had three children: Elizabeth (Gleitsmann) Spindler, Margaret Rachael (Gleitsmann) Riefner, and Herman, who married Margaret Koppelman.
