Hi Ralph,
      I just have looked up the Family Tree and noticed that Witteman Senior did not have a first Name - Well I do have several Items at home from his Printing Business.
      His Name was Adolph Wittemann an his Printing Shop was on 67 & 69 Spring Street, Brooklyn, New York. (Printing mostly Post Cards.) Paul Witteman told me once, that his Father Adolph came from England, His last Name was written with 2 "nn" but changed it to one later on. Many Regards
Wolfgang Tischer
Editor's Note:I thank Wolfgang for this additional information and for enabling me to correct the entry. As you can see, I have replaced "First Name Not Known" with "Adolph." I also thank him for his previous substantial contributions, for which I am very grateful.
