Phillip had a linen factory in Bielefeld. He had lived in Bielefeld since 1859. The Johanisfriedhof Cemetery is near the Botanical Garden and to find the Jewish section you have to go to the building located in the cemetery and facing it go right down the hill, it is kind of hidden below the other part of the cemetery and not nearly as nice. However, the graves are permanent. They are not dug up after 25 or what ever years like gentile graves.

Max worked at the Boston Store, which was co-founded by his brother Carl. He had his own booth where he sold beads and religious articles. He was active in the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. Max came to America in Apr 1901 on the Pretoria which docked in New York on 9 May 1901. His son Rudy and Helene his wife arrived on the Graf Waldersee in March 1903. Before coming to America Max was salesman and did much traveling in Europe probably selling the linens that his father manufactured in Bielefeld. We had samples of linen (donated to the Milwaukee County Museum) and postcards of his travels. He died at Doctors Hospital
Some addresses that they lived at from the Milwaukee City Directory
1904 73 25 St.
1906-1908 326 14 St.
1913 499 38 St.
1919 483 37th St.

St. Pauli is now a section of Altoona or Hamburg which are adjoining cities. Helene was born at 1:30 in the afternoon with the aid of Dr. Barkow. At the time of Helene's birth the family was living at No. 49 Feldstrasse and her father's occupation was agent.
Altona is a former Danish town that became united with Hamburg in 1937. Until 1820 Jews could not live in Hamburg so they lived in Altoona and there is something about a gate between the cities.
Following is a translation of the "Tafel-Lieder" (wedding song or gathering to sing together) for the wedding of Max Hertzfeld and Helene Leopold on May 29, 1898.
Here on the beautiful Elbe Banks in our nice little town there was born our Lenchen (nickname for Helene).
She stayed small but was good at housekeeping. She learned to cook to her mother's joy. Ten years ago - at almost the same hour - here was Leopold.
It was Leopold's and Caecilie's wedding. It could go on like this and we shall celebrate 50th anniversary in Gotha (this is where Caecilie and Leopold lived). Max he came from Bielefeld.
Everyone knows him already. He brought a letter from Helene Philipsohn. Because he was the "Poltillon d'amour" he wanted our Helene Leopold. You love each other and our good wishes are with you. The best parents blessing will be with you.
Note: Helene Philipsohn was probably a good friend to Helene.
I think the Helene Philipsohn mentioned above is the same person who married Max's brother, Carl, and whose brother joined Carl in the opening of a store in Milwaukee the, Herzfeld-Phillipsohn Company, later known as the Boston Store.
Max and Helene had the following children:
+ 16 M i. Rudy Hugo HERZFELD (Max, Phillip, Herz Joel, Jakob, Salomon Joel) was born on 3 Sep 1899 in Bielefeld, Westphalia, Germany and was christened on 28 Dec 1919 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

He retired and lived in Boca Raton and Del Ray Beach, Florida. Thelma was the daughter of John and Arabella Spaethe (Mullen) Burhanna. In 1930 Carl was living with his parents at 483 37th St. and worked at Phoenix Hosiery.

Her brother Richard Phillipson helped start the Herzfeld-Phillipson Company later known as Boston Store in Milwaukee.
When first coming to America in 1883 at the age of 17, Carl lived in Kalamazoo and Decatur, Mich. He then moved to Milwaukee in 1889 where he worked as a store clerk and floor walker. Carl received his citizenship Oct. 29, 1888 in Van Buran County, Mich. His passport was signed by James G. Pierce: Sec. of State in 1890.

Carl and his brother-in-law, Richard Phillipson, founded The Herzfeld-Phillipson Company later known as the Boston Store in Milwaukee. It was a great success and is still in existence but is owned by a conglomerate now. Carl was a millionaire when he died and he left everything to his wife and two sons so they could continue to live in the way that they were accustomed to. He died of a heart attack.
"A small dry goods store was opened by Julius Simon in the late 1890's. He chose Fourth and Grand Avenue (now Wisconsin Avenue) in Milwaukee, easily reached by carriage, trolley and train and appropriately adopted the slogan, "The Heart of Milwaukee". As business improved, Simon opened a variant of the department store, a concept popularized by a Massachusetts retailer who offered many goods and services under one roof. Simon leased space to other merchants including the Stone brothers of Chicago, C. Herzfeld and R. Phillipson, and in 1900, Milwaukee Boston Store opened with 30 different departments.

+ 20 M ii. Richard Phillip HERZFELD was born on 9 Jan 1898 and died on 7 Mar 1980.
20. Richard Phillip HERZFELD (Carl, Phillip, Herz Joel, Jakob, Salomon Joel) was born 9 Jan 1898 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.Richard died on 7 Mar 1980 in Boca Raton and was buried in Mar 1980 in Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee Sec. 36 blk. 37 & 38 T5, Crypt. He married Ethel Ann DAVIS on 22 Feb 1922 in Milwaukee. Ethel was born on 2 Oct 1896 in Milwaukee. She died on 11 Feb 1997, four months after her 100th birthday, in Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida and was buried at Forest Home Cemetery in Milwaukee. Richard was very well liked by all.
Ethel and Richard had twins that died at birth and Ethel was advised not to have any more children. Ethel seems to have been a bit spoiled, she would not allow Carole to become a buyer at the store and one time when her sister came home from France after being away many years she didn't even come to meet her when she arrived because she had a luncheon engagement. Richard bought her a house on Pine Lake for a Christmas Present one year. I have seen it and it is quite beautiful. Pine Lake was once the summer place of the Beer Barons and still is a wealthy community. Richard added a line of designer clothes to the store because Ethel liked to go to New York to shop.
Ethel was the daughter of Oscar Frederic Davis (1855 Chicago-1913) his father was born in Wales and he owned Marine Boiler Works. Ethel's mother was Ernna Brustlein b.9 Jan 1872 in Mulhouse, France, Alsace Loraine section d.1962 Milwaukee, her parents came to America in 1875. I believe Oscar also owned Windsor Manufacturing Company at 656 Mineral St., which made lead pipe and plumbing supplies.
Ethel had a sister, Pearl Davis Weller, who became a friend of ours. She lived in France during WWII. Her husband had to become a French citizen when they moved to France in order to work there. He served in the war and he lost his life in the process. At the end or her life Pearl lived in Cedarburg, Wisconsin with a care giver and her family. Pearl owned the house they lived in, but she got round the clock care. She did fairly well for a 98 year old, but was starting to fail. Pearl was born 24 Apr 1894. Ethel and Pearl were the only two children in their family. Pearl died 3 Feb 1993 and is buried in the Davis cemetery plot at Forest Home in Milwaukee.
I believe Richard also attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He took pictures and movies of wildlife for the Milwaukee Museum. In 1958 he took a 98 day trip photographing scenes in the Panama Canal area, South Seas and the far east. He was a museum research associate in photography.
In the 1939 social Register and Directory page 107:

Richard quoted in Pine Lake by William F. Stark, 1971 wrote "my family. Carl Herzfeld, owned another Pine Lake Property from 1916-1923 (now owned by Casper #68). My present property, part of the Sands Farm, was previously owned by Guido Hanson". The house at Pine Lake (5241 & 5247 Hwy 83) has two homes rented, the caretakers house, and the main house has servants quarters, a boat house, which is two stories with a pier and boat storage garage with gas pumps. There is a barn where Richard made furniture and a garage with living quarters for the chauffeur.
