My husband's father, Otto Roessler, was born in Krakow in 1895. At that time it was Austria and Otto's father, Marion, remained there. Otto and his mother Theresa, came to the US before 1898 because Otto's brother Alfred was born in Trenton, NJ in 1898. We have not had any success with locating information about Theresa. However, I was told through Austrian email, that the German name of Roessler, must have been in the military or civil service.
