additional information:
Although referred to as "Henry Jr.", his given names were not actually the same as his father's.

Henry Jr. and his wife, "Minnie" Meyer, were both born in Milwaukee. But Henry's parents were Pomeranians who spoke "Plattdeutsch" ("Flat" or "Low" German) and Minnie's parents were Bavarians who spoke "Hochdeutsch" ("High" German). These language designations actually refer to the fact that speakers lived in lowlands or highlands, respectively. But my mother recalled that she thought the Bavarian side of the family considered themselves somewhat superior for speaking "Hochdeutsch"
