Looking for family of Arthur A. FINK *(Cincinnati, OH; Detroit, MI; Chicago, IL)

Query by grounded1

There is very little info on my father's side of the family and, unfortunately, no one left to ask. We believe that his family is from Osnabruck, Germany and that grandpa's father's name was Peter Johann Fink (but there were a LOT of them!) and his mother was Johanna (Rolfson) Fink. He had sister named Amelia who was married twice, the last married name was Zeiverink (?spelling) and a brother named William who died at the age of 26 or so. Arthur ran off with another man's wife and two of her three children. The lady's married name was Hannah (Ernst) Muench and the children she took with her were Hannah and Bill (William) Muench. She left another son, John Muench, behind in Cincinnati. Eventually they had children of their own. Due to the economy (and maybe because he snatched another man's wife) they moved around a lot. Their two daughters, Helen and Lois, were born in Detroit, MI and their son, Arthur A Fink, Jr was born in Chicago, IL, supposedly at the boarding house of a family member. They eventually moved back to Cincinnati for good around 1936.
