Echo Chants and More

In the year 1910 Great-great-grandfather Otto 
Left his home in the German Alps
Boarded a ship in the port of Hamburg
And sailed off to America.
He disembarked on Ellis Island
And saluted the Statue of Liberty.
He found a job in New York City
Making ladies' hats for Lord & Taylor's.
He met a Fräulein named Mathilde
Who soon became his Frau.
They had three sons- Hans, Franz, und Rudoph.
Hans became a doctor.
Franz went to jail for bank robbery.
And Rudolph made hats for Lord & Taylor's . . .
