This photograph is a mystery. It was (to my understanding) in the possession of Gertrude Alice /Fritz/ Brinton, who passed away in 1993.
I found a newspaper mention of a Fritz Harper Abernathy during a Google search while looking for information on people from my family tree. I strongly believe he’s part of my tree, but I haven’t yet found that conclusive evidence. Here’s what I do have.
My fourth great grandparents on the Fritz branch were born, lived, and died in Austria. Their son, Benedict, is my third great grandfather, and was one of three in his family (as far as I know) that immigrated to the United States.
