BMD: Franks, Edward 79 Newcastle T. 10b 63 (note age discrepancy vs 1911 census)

Note: The Israel Funk listed in the Hamburg Passenger lists as leaving Hamburg in July 1888 on the "Coblenz" bound for New York via Leith is probably not this Israel Funk. He is listed as born in 1861 age 27 from Ritewen (?), but in the Castle Garden immigration records for New York is shown as 17 years old, and arrived in NY on 16th August 1888.
