My Grandfather Otto Herbaczek was born in Pilzen, (Austria) now Czech Republic on 24 Mar 1861, and immigrated to the United States, arriving in New York 11 Jun 1894. I am told he taught at a University, but then became involved in the fur trade, which brought him to the US. Prior to immigrating he married Henrietta Forton (or Fortin) from Belgium or France. Any help someone could offer would be much appreciated.
