“They kept the Central Hotel, at Easton, Pa, for a period of three years, and finding themselves well suited to the business of entertaining the public, agreeably as well as profitably, they in 1872 purchased the ‘Cross Keys Hotel’ in Allentown, a house that was very popular with the farmers of that section, and long had the greater share of their patronage, as well as a goodly share of the support of the traveling public. They were successful in their venture, and though he was but forty-eight years old at the time of his death, he left the family in comfortable circumstances. The hotel was managed by his wife and children with continued success until 1887” (from Heinrich Gernhardt and His Descendants, pg. 200).
