Jacob FINK

JACOB FINK (deceased) played an honorable part in the civic and business life of the city of Niagara Falls, N. Y., and commanded the respect and enjoyed the esteem of the community in which he long maintained his home, and in which he was regarded as a loyal and useful citizen.
Jacob Fink was born in Germany, Jan. 16, 1846, and his death occurred at his home in Niagara Falls, May 1, 1912. He had school privileges in his native land, where he also served an apprenticeship to the carpenter's trade.
At the age of eighteen years he accompanied his uncle, the late Conrad Fink, to America, after the latter had made one of his periodical trips to Germany, and came with him to the village of Niagara Falls, where Conrad Fink had established his home a number of years prior to that time. Here Jacob Fink found employment in the railroad shops, and later became associated with Daniel Phillips, a well known contractor and builder at that time. Still later he was employed as a carpenter in the service of the Niagara Falls Brewing Company, with which corporation he thus continued until his retirement from active affairs, about four years prior to his death. Mr. Fink was not only a skilled artisan, but also a man of broad and comprehensive reading, sound judgment and well fortified opinions. He was one of the organizers and incorporators of the Niagara Permanent Savings & Loan Association, in the upbuilding of which he tool, an active part, and which he served as a trustee until the time of his death. Mr. Fink belonged to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and was noble grand of the local lodge, and he exemplified the work of this fraternity in both the English and German languages. He was liberal and progressive as a citizen, was generous in his contributions to the church of which both he and wife were members, and cast his vote with the political party that best measured up to his ideals of right and justice.
Jacob Fink married Mary Princing, who died in 1915.
A record of their five children is as follows: Jacob J., who is deceased, served as a soldier in the Spanish‑American war; Gottlieb, who died July 11, 1920; Conrad, who is deceased; Barbara, who is the wife of John J. DeShinsky, prominent in the lumber business at Niagara Falls; and Anna, who is the wife of Samuel R. Barton, who is junior member of the firm of Perry & Barton, Niagara Falls, which represents the International Battery Service. Mr. Barton is a native of Buffalo. He was married in 1900 to Miss Anna Fink, and they have two children and reside at No. 1608 Main street.
John J. DeShinsky was born at Tonawanda, N. Y., and was educated in the public schools. He has been identified with the lumber business during practically his entire active career, and at present is superintendent of the Haeberle Lumber Company, a solid enterprise of Niagara Falls. He is a member of Niagara River Lodge No. 785, F. & A. M., and belongs also to the Acasia Club. Mr. De Shinsky married Barbara Fink, and they have had two children, Jack P. and Owen; the younger son dying in childhood. Mrs. DeShinsky belongs to the Eastern Star. The family resides at No. 1618 Eighth street, Niagara Falls.

Konrad FINK

Konrad Fink (1835-1916)

 KONRAD FINK, who maintained his residence in Niagara county for more than half a century, was one of the oldest and best known citizens of the north end of the city of Niagara Falls at the time of his death, on May 20, 1916. He had long been a substantial business man and influential citizen of the village of Suspension Bridge, and there continued to reside after the village had be­come all integral part of the city of Niagara Falls. He contributed to the civic and material upbuild­ing of the city and was known as a man of integrity and honor.
Mr. Fink was born in the kingdom of Wurttemburg, Germany, Aug. 3, 1835, a son of Jacob Fink, and he was nearly eighty‑one years of age at the time of his death.
He acquired his youthful education in the schools of his native land and when eighteen years old came to the United States and established his home in Niagara county, N. Y., in 1854. He had previously become skilled at the blacksmith trade, and within a very short time he found employment in connection with the con­struction of the first suspension bridge across the Niagara river. He became one of the pioneer settlers and in 1857 he found employment in the shops of the New York Central Railroad, at Ni­agara Falls. He continued in the employ of this railroad company ten years. In 1866 he opened a store on Cleveland avenue, and long conducted a prosperous enterprise in the handling of groceries and provisions. For the accommodation of his large and substantial business he finally erected, at the corner of Main street and Niagara avenue, one of the first substantial business blocks in the village of Suspension Bridge. Here, in addition to handling groceries and provisions, he maintained what was virtually an inn, and concerning this popular headquarters the following words have been written: "It was operated along the same lines as the old country taverns. Farmers from far and near made it their rendezvous, and among them Mr. Fink had many dear friends. His was the soul of honor, and his virtues gave him a place of esteem in the hearts of all who knew him." In 1913 Mr. Fink sold his business block when he retired, the remainder of his life being passed in generous comfort and ease at his attractive home, at No. 915 Niagara avenue. The sterling character and mature judgment of Mr. Fink gained him prominence and influence in connection with the communal affairs of the village of Suspension Bridge, where he served several years as president of the village, besides having been a trustee after the adoption of the commission system of municipal government, his home village having in the meanwhile become consolidated with that of Niagara Falls, to form the city of the latter name. He served fifteen, years as assessor, and after the consolidation with Niagara Falls he was for some time a member of the municipal water commission. He was always ready to aid in the furtherance of every worthy movement projected for the best interests of his home city and county. He became a stock­holder and director of the Bank of Suspension Bridge at the time of its organization, in 1886, and continued as a director of the institution, now known as the People's Bank, until the time of his death. In the closing period of his long and useful life he was, in point of active service, the old­est bank director in the city of Niagara Falls, Mr. Fink was a Democrat in politics, and was an earnest communicant of Zion Lutheran Church, of which he served as a trustee for twenty‑one years, besides which he was for several years president of the Oakwood Cemetery Association.
He was a charter member and first noble grand of Niagara Falls Lodge No. 81, Odd Fellows, his affiliation with which covered a period of forty ­nine years, and he held membership in the Exempt Firemen's Association of Niagara Falls.  
The large and representative assemblage on the occasion of the funeral of Mr. Fink offered defi­nite attestation to the high regard in which he was held in Niagara county. The pallbearers. at his funeral were his seven grandsons: Samuel Ade, Walter Fink, Walter Haeberle, George Fink, Fred Fink, Carl Heywang and George Haeberle.
The board of directors of the People's Bank of Niagara Falls held a special meeting and passed the following resolution: "In the death of Konrad Fink, there is removed from life the last member of the original board of directors of this institution. For thirty years Mr. Fink served the interests of this bank with perfect loyalty and just estimate of his responsibilities. Punctual in attendance at meetings of the directorate, his amiable disposition and lovable qualities assured him, of the esteem and affection of his associates, who feel a deep sense of loss in his death. Our friend will be greatly missed from the councils of this board, and as a tribute to his memory and appre­ciation of long and valued service, it is ordered that this minute be entered on the record of our proceedings, and a copy thereof forwarded to the bereaved family." On Nov. 20, 1858, took place the marriage of Konrad Fink to Mrs. Margaret (Walter) Fink, widow of his brother Christian.
Mrs. Fink died in 1887, and was survived by one son, Christian, of her first marriage, and by three children of her second, the latter being:
Margaret, who is the wife of George C. Haeberle, a representative business man of Niagara Falls; Dora, who resides in Niagara Falls; and Elizabeth, who is the wife of Charles Heywang, also of Niagara Falls, Mr. Fink was married (second) on Sept. 10, 1895, to Margaret Walter, a niece of his first wife, and she still occupies the fine old homestead which he erected on Niagara avenue. Mrs. Fink has a host of friends in her home city and is an earnest commuicant of Zion Lutheran Church. Her only child, Marie, is the wife of William Metz Crandall, and they reside in the Metz apartment building on Jefferson avenue, this city. They have one son, Walter Fink Crandall.

The 1930 US Cenus indicates the family of Ennis & Margaret Oliphant had move out of Margaret's parents home on Ontario Avenue, into a home at 603 79th Street in Niagara Falls, NY. Margaret's mother, Elizabeth, was living with them. Margaret's father, Charles Heywang, had died in 1926. Ennis & Margaret had 4 children at this time (Helen Oliphant & James Oliphant were not yet born).
The Census indicates they owned the home, valued at $5,500. It also indicates they owned a "Radio set". The "age when first married" is incorrect for Ennis & Margaret (he was 20 & she was 22). Elizabeth Heywang probably provided the Cenus information while Ennis & Margaret were at work, and didn't know the correct ages.

603 79th St, Niagara Falls, NY is a single family home that contains 1,360 sq ft and was built in 1905. It contains 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
