Looking for Mackrodt family from Bronx, NY
I am looking for info on my great grandfather William Mackrodt. He came here from Germany in the early 1900s through Ellis. He was born June 8, 1886 in Berlin Germany. We believe his father's name was Wilhelm but we are not sure. He married Martha Braun/Brown. May 11, 1911 in Manhattan, NY. They had 4 children. Anne (b. 1914 ), Freddie ( b. 1912 my grandfather, died 1953 ), William b. 1915 and died in 1947 in Manhattan, NY and then a 4th child Metha ( Martha ) born about 1906. She is listed in the 1920 census but not the 1930. She also was William's daughter but not sure if she was Martha's as she was born before they were married. I do not know when or where Martha or William died or where they are buried. When my grandfather Freddie died he was cremated and his ashes were given to his father William. Both William and Martha also are listed as going to either Florida Keys or Havana Cuba.
I also found this:
4086 Park Avenue seems to have belonged to Martha as she sold it to a Antonia Schmidt Jan 5 1920 but am not sure because of the wording.
