Maximillian S. Freudenberg III (1893-1900)

A minor family mystery was solved today. I found the death of Maximillian S. Freudenberg III (1893-1900). I always thought he died as an infant then a years ago I found him still alive in the 1900 US census in Hoboken. He didn't live much longer past the census and died at age 7. The name was a curse, his younger brother, Maximillian S. Freudenberg II (1881) only lived for 11 days. I just hope he wasn't buried in Hoboken Cemetery. They are notorious for reselling the graves of children if there was no tombstone.
