Birth: Oct. 1, 1876
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: Dec. 21, 1952
Union County
New Jersey, USA

Ferdinand or "Fred" as he called himself arrived at Ellis Island at the age of 17 in June 1893. He came to live in Elizabeth, New Jersey where he worked as a machinist for the Singer sewing machine company. He became a naturalized American citizen in 1898. He and his wife Emma Hettig had three children together. Upon the death of his wife, he found himself a young widower at the age of 33. About ten years later he married again and had another daughter. In 1920, he joined the Freemasons. He was a quiet man who enjoyed smoking a cigar. Although he never returned to his native Germany, he did keep in touch with his sister Albertine and her family. He also liked having his extended family come to his home for holiday get-togethers. It was quite a lively group discussion during the World War years as he had one son-in-law who was Swedish and one who was English and a wife who was Hungarian. In November 1952 after 56 years of employment at Singer, he retired having held the title of foreman in department 40. He was a member of the Singer Veteran's Association and the Singer Engineering Society as well as the Workmen's Sick and Death Benefit Society.

Sadly, about a month after his retirement, he died on December 21, 1952 (age 76) as a result of a coronary thrombosis, complicated by diabetes mellitis and arteriosclerosis. He was buried at Graceland Memorial Park, Galloping Hill Road, Kenilworth, New Jersey 07033. Suzy, his second wife, is buried there with him.
