Bernhardt Gassenheimer, b. 1865 in Themar, was the one child of Samuel and Lotte (née Stein) to leave Germany and immigrate into the United States. He was the eldest son and the family strategy may have been that emigration offered him the best chance of socio-economic success. Several other Gassenheimer cousins had already gone to the States and they may well have assisted the 15-year old Bernhardt when he arrived in 1880 in New York City.
Ten years after his arrival, in April 1890, Bernhardt married an American born woman, Ella Holland. Ella gave birth to ten children, one of whom was stillborn, and several of whom did not live out of childhood. We know most about four of Bernhardt’s and Ella’s children: Rudolf, b. 1900; Gertrude, b. 1902; Walter, b. 1906; and Joseph, b. 1908.
In 1892, Samuel Gassenheimer died. In the first listing in the , Bernhard was identified as one of his male heirs although his whereabouts were unknown/unbekannt wo. In May 1892, it was announced that Bernhard was not a representative of the company; on 28 October 1895, Bernhard and siblings officially left the Themar Gassenheimer business.
We do not yet know exactly when Bernhard died; census records indicate that it was before 1915: Bernhard is counted in the 1910 Federal Census, but is not in the 1915 New Jersey State Census nor in the 1920 Federal Census. While the 1915 census does not identify Ella as a widow, the 1920 does.
Assuming that Bernhard died between 1910 and 1915, this means that Ella was a single mother in her early 40s to five (5) children. Two — Bernard and Charlotte — were adult; the other three were under 15 years of age.
The date of Ella’s death is also unknown; in the 1930 Federal Census, she was living with Charlotte, Walter, and Joseph Gassenheimer in Teaneck New Jersey.
