Immediate Family

About Albert Theodore Strauch

He was raised into the piano action business by his father, and they ran it with his brother. Albert was primarily responsible for sales and marketing. The company was called "Strauch Brothers Piano Actions" and made the inside components of a piano, but not the cabinet. He sold the business to Sears in 1928. My great grandmother always blamed the decline of the business on the rise in the price of ivory after World War I.

They were married at 342 W. 33rd Street and later lived at 25 W. 94th St. (1912) in New York City, and 106 Bella Vista St. in Tuckahoe, New York. They also had a home at Woodbury, Connecticut which she inherited from her step-parents, Dr. Z. Swift Webb and Katherine Barclay Webb. It was in this house that my grandmother was born in 1895. It was sold at auction during the depression, along with much of its contents. They were members of the Fourth Presbyterian Church at New York City.
