Franz Morscher, was my great grandfather.  He was the grandfather of my  dad and also Joseph "Pepi" Morscher.  He was born on June 15, 1871 and was the Mayor of Langenton (Gottschee) and had an inn there.  After the war, Franz helped my grandfather, Joseph Morscher, and my uncle, Joseph Pepi Morscher, establish New York City's Morscher's Pork Store.


Here is a photo taken of Franz Morscher's establishment in Langenton with a big crowd of people.  My grandfather
Joseph Morscher was in this crowd, and can be seen in the close up view of the photo.  As far as I can tell, Franz Morscher is nowhere to be found in the image.
