### Surname Saturday: HAEFNER

First Saturday of the year means that it's time to start my Surname Saturday series. The first surname in my family tree to start the series is...HAEFNER.

My ancestor Frank Alselm HAEFNER was born in Baden (Germany) on 27 Jul 1853 to Frank Simon HAEFNER and Eva Barbara MULLAR. On his 20th birthday he arrived in New York (either New York City or Rochester). He spent some time in New York and then traveled to Williamsport, Lycoming county, Pennsylvania. On 22 Jul 1879, he married Eva Catherine BLITZ. Frank worked as a tailor in their home. He died 25 Nov 1933 in Williamsport and was buried in St. Boniface Cemetery.

Their daughter Magdalena HAEFNER was my great grandmother. She married Eugene J ECK on 11 Sep 1919 in Williamsport. Magdalena and Eugene died on the same day, 2 Jan 1975.
