MT notes: Henry has written: Familie Pinkus Apt, Gross-Strehlitz.
The 1914 Upper Silesia business directory (page 116) lists Markus Apt as the owner of a Manufakturwarenhdlg (manufactured goods) business named Pinkus Apt in Gross Strehlitz. Friederike's death certificate also puts her parents, named as Simon and Rosalie, in Gross Strehlitz.
www.ckziu-strzelce.pl describes Pinkus as a grain trader and mayor of Rozmierz, a village less than 5 miles northwest of Gross Strehlitz.
The parents of Heinrich and Emma are named as Pinkus Apt and Rebekka, suggesting that either Pinkus had a second marriage or their father was a different Pinkus. Heinrich's marriage certificate says that they died in Ratibor which leads me to belive that their father was a namesake.
