My grandfather was Bernard Frederick Bischoff. He worked in Pa, Oh.,In., and finally died in Wv around 1930. Anyone having any info on this branch of Bischoffs, please contact me. Thanks

The branch you seek is in Miami. My grandfather is Bernard F. Bischoff II and owned a glass plant in W Va until his death in the late 1950's. My dad (Tony) and his brother (Bernard III) moved to Miami after their father's death.

Contact me if you would like more information.

I don't think we are related, but I just thought you might find this funny...My maiden name was Shirley Bischoff, I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, and my father's name is Bernhard Bischoff. Also, I sell antiques, mostly glass and china, and sell Bischoff glass. My dad's family was from Madison, Wisconsin...three generations...Bernhard(my great, gr', gr. grandfather, then his son George, then his son Alvin, then the first names repeated..so my dad was a Bernhard again. Our family's original Bernhard Bischoff came from Prussia, early 1800's. We live in Mount Lebanon..south hills of Pittsburgh. In friendship, Shirley

OK, I'm 6 years too late and both Tony and my brother Bill Moran, who was not only his cousin but also his good friend, have died. But I just discovered this board that I apparently wrote on years ago. Jummy (Bernard) and I correspond and I'd like to hear from you too. Is Mary Lou (apparently your Mom) still around? She'd remember both Bill and I. She and my brother took me to see Fantasia when I was in 4th grade:). I'd really like to know what happened to that branch of the family.
thanks,
Abby Moran Robinson

Very interesting. Pittsburg was of course where many glass workers came from Europe. How did you're family end up in Wis?

Hi Abby,

I guess we're cousins. You are right, quite a bit has happened in the last six years and not all of it good. To answer your question, yes, my Mother (Mary Lou) is doing well. I talked to her about your message and she wouldn't mind being in touch either. Please email me at mary_b@bellsouth.net and I'll catch you up on this branch of the family tree. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Mary
