Alexander Stark, Frieda Schierbaum Stark, Bremen 1885-1895

Classification: Query
Surnames: Stark, Schierbaum
Looking for any information on Alexander Stark (b. ?- d. 1892-1895) or his widow, Frieda Schierbaum Stark (b. 1866 Wildeshausen, Oldenburg, Niedersachsen). They had two children, one was a son, August Stark, b. 1891, and the other child's sex and name are unknown. This child was apparently left behind by his mother when she emigrated from Bremen to the US in November 1895 to work as a housekeeper in Greenwich, Conn. She was apparently told that there was only room for one child so she was forced to make a "Sophie's Choice" and leave one behind. She married my great grandfather Simon Johann shortly after joining his household to work for him. They had seven children together.
