George John Maier was my grandfather, birth June 15,1888 Brooklyn NY death June13, 1943. Parents were Phillip Maier and Catherine Fahl, There were 5 children, Phillip, Clara, George John, Martha and Mabel. The father Phillip owned a place called Two Cent Place or Two Penny Place. One evening when he was trying to separate two men fighting outside his store he was hit with something (a bottle?) and died . The mother died shortly thereafter. The youngest child was adopted. The other children were sent to St John's Orphanage.The children were born in Brooklyn, NY, King's County. Does any one have any information about this family or whatever happened to the estate?
