Biographical data
Name: Frankenstein, Edward Nathan  
Born: 18 Dec. 1839
Died: 13 Mar. 1913
 
Notes:
Did Edward Nathan Frankenstein spend time in New York? Mackenzie, Mason and Co., Part I, by van Winsen (p.73, 80, 82), and Part II (p.70) have him playing there from 1866 to 1868. The New York State Chess Association Report lists 'Frankenstein, E.' as a member in 1891 and gives results by this player in 1890. If this was a distinct 'E. Frankenstein', was he the player of 1866-1867 as well?
