    Photo cir. 1912. (estimating John E. Howell's age at 10.) If Dr. Fitig Grunberger is 65 in the photo, he was born circa 1847. Alfred Grunberger was born Oct 1875, when Fitig was 28 - so Fitig could be the father of Alfred. (J. Spencer Howell collection.)

  • Notes 
    • J. Spencer Howell has a photo of Dr. Fitig Grunberger and John E. Howell taken cir. 1912.  John E. Howell called Fitig "pappas".  We originally thought Fitig/pappas were nicknames and that he was Nellie Davison Howell's husband and therefore John E. Howell's step-father.  However in May 2007 Hal Lathrop discovered a photo believed to be of AlfredGrunberger taken in Bridgewater circa 1922 when Nellie and Alfred visited Canada. Alfred Grunberger in the 1922 photo is and much younger person than Fitig Grunberger in the 1912 photo.  If Fitig Grunberger is 65 years old in the 1912 photo he was  28 years old when Alfred was born. Based on the fact that John E. Howell called Fitig "pappas" (ie - grandfather) and based on the age difference between Fitig and Alfred, we conclude for now that Fitig is Alfred's father. [2, 3]
