Biography

Birth

Joseph Albert Pung was born on 23 July 1889 in Dorchester, Clark, Wisconsin, the fifth of six children born to German-American Nicholas Pung and German-Bohemian immigrant Anna Keigel.[1][2]

Life

While Joseph was living at home in Milwaukee[3], he joined the US Navy in August 1906, as he was a sailor on the U.S.S. Connecticut at the 1910 census.[4] He worked his way up to the rank of Third Class Petty Officer and was a Coxswain by the time that he left the Navy in August 1914.[5][6]

He married Margaret E Kroeckel of Irondequoit on 9 June 1912 in Rochester, less than two months after their first child, Violet Marion, was born.[7] They also had a son, Robert E, born in 1915 who died only a couple months after he was born. The family lived on Commercial St. in the High Falls district where Joseph was working as a railroad conductor[8] before moving to Schanck Ave, just outside of the Beechwood neighborhood, and during this time Joseph worked as a Grinder and Polisher (Buffer) for Todd Protectograph, Co.[5][9] However, at the 1930 census, Joseph was out of work while his daughter Violet was working as a bookkeeper for a department store.[10]

Violet had five children with Leland Ray Morrison of Plankinton, South Dakota but perished two days after giving birth to their last child. Joseph and Margaret raised their five grandchildren from then on after Leland was arrested and sentenced to three-to-six years at Attica State Prison. During the time that the kids were settling into their new Schanck Ave home, Joseph was working in a federal building to support them.[11] On his World War II draft registration card in 1942, he stated that he was employed at the U.S. Post Office on Cumberland St in the Upper Falls neighborhood.[12]

Death

Joseph passed away on 1 December 1964 in the Beechwood neighborhood of Rochester at the age of 75 and was buried three days later in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Rochester.[1][13]
