From a German Grandma
INTRODUCING GRANDMA BLOCK
Emma Streib Block grew up in Steinsfurt,
a small German village. The Streibs were a large family,
with eleven children; Emma had three brothers and seven sisters.
Their mother had died, at the age of forty-two, when the youngest boy was born.
Most of the children, when they reached the age when they could leave home, came to America looking for a brighter future.
They came, two or three at a time, found work and saved their money,
then bought tickets for the next ones to make the crossing. Eventually,
their father made the voyage also.
