To all who have written me, thank you so much for your help! I believe
I may have stumbled on to the answer but I have yet to find the
conclusive evidence for it. I found a Morris and Fannie HORN living
with someone who appears to be my g-g-g grandfather in the 1905 NY
Census at an address right nearby to 1952 2nd Ave. (this was the
correct address as I misread Ave. as Str.).
Problem is I lose track of this Morris and Fannie before 1900 and
after 1920. I think Fannie died between 1920 and 1930 but I can't find
a death record that would fit.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated again.
