Fred was born 27 Dec 1893, Zwittan, Czechoslovakia. He immigrated to the United States through Canada. He entered in the US in Port Huron, MI on 20 Sep 1913. Five years later he married Ella Martha Marie Jonas from Morton Grove, IL on 26 Nov 1918, in Chicago, IL. Ella was the first generation to be born in America, (she was 1 of 12 children). Both of her parents immigrated to the States from Germany.
Fred and Ella are my paternal Great Grandparents. There is still more research that needs to be completed on this line.
