Quotehe 1873 date on the cover was apparently the supposed founding of C. A. Klinkner. We know that's incorrect, but may have been used to give MK a more robust "history".
Quotenothing at all on L. H. Moise...don't even know what L.H. stands for.
Quote from: Figleaf on April 04, 2020, 06:08:05 PMVan Schaack is highly likely to be a spelling error. The name Schaack (chess) occurs in the Netherlands - without Van (from), but the name Van Schaick (a town in North Brabant) is common.I thought Moïse was a first name. Sorry. As a last name, it is originally from Haïti, but it has spread over much of the francophone world and the US. I would expect it to lose the diaeresis (the two dots over the i) in English, but not in French.Peter
Quote from: malj1 on April 05, 2020, 01:06:34 AMI see his date of a arrival in San Francisco is 1872 so once he was employed he could use 1873 as his establishment!His full name should appear on the contract of sale when he bought out Klinkner's assets I wonder if there is any trace of this?
