My great-grandfather William C. H. Waack
was a toddler when he arrived at Ellis
Island in 1887.
His son Chester (1909-1983) is reported
to have worked during his teen years
"for his uncle who owned a drugstore in Chicago"
See my web site(s) for the meager information
that I have. If any of it looks promising,
or if you think you can fill any of my gaps,
