Biographical data
Name: Brenzinger, Francis Eugene  
Born: 1835
Died: 13 Jan. 1910
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 14-01-1835 and 13-01-1836; Hilbert gives birth 'about 1836'; van Winsen gives birth 'ca. 1835 or 1836?'. The New York Times of 9 Dec. 1859 (p.1) gives his name as 'Branzinger'. The Era of 15 Nov. 1863 (p.14) has 'E. Brenzinger'. The American Chess Magazine of Apr.-May 1898 (p.629) has F.E. Brenzinger playing for Staten Island. The Aug. 1897 issue (p.144) has 'the veteran, C. Brenzinger', but this must be an error for F.E. Brenzinger. Also, the Mar. 1898 issue (p.576) has 'Brenziger, Sr.', while the Nov. 1897 issue (p.349) has 'Brenzinger, Sr.'.
