ZWIRNBAUM, John*. Spouse of Pearl. Born 1879, died 1956 Built a store in Shinglehouse PA in 1913. Operated it until 1955.

* NOTE: John Zwirnbaum built a store in Shinglehouse PA in 1913 and ran it until the year before he died. His son Max took it over for him.
A note from the Zwirnbaum family tells us Max Zwirnbaum passed away July 1, 2005 at the age of 89. He had left PA several years back with his wife and made the base location of our family about 40 years ago in Alexandria, VA. He served in two wars (WWII and Korea) and received a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his uncommon valor. He retired from the Army and worked as a civil servant for years until he retired again to help care for my grandmother.
