My parents both worked in various mills in New Bedford. My mother was a weaver and my father was a loom fixer. They left New Bedford when there was a large strike of mill workers in 1927, I think to work in a hospital in New York City.EMILY MARGARET2 KRUMBHOLZ (George1) was born at Providence, Rhode Island, on 30 January 1888 (PZK; SSDI), the daughter of George Adam Krumbholz and his wife Pauline Zeller. She married ARNOLD KUNTZ at St. Boniface Roman Catholic Church, New Bedford, Massachusetts, on 7 August 1912. Arnold was born in Alsace-Lorraine, then part of Germany, on 7 August 1887 (AGK; SSDI).
My father left New York City to come to work in Buffalo, NY, as a Security Guard for Buffalo Electro-Chemical Co.--now FNC Co. He worked at this for 20 years then retired. I came to Buffalo in November 1929. The rest of the family came in 1930 from New Bedford. My father was bothered with stomach trouble and had to stay home quite often. That is why my mother worked. They were good parents.
