One thought on “E.J. Brach & Sons, est. 1904

  1. My grandfather John Brach ( died in 1963) claims he was related to then Brachs Candy co. He came over from Poland. WE don;t know about any of his family. At least once a year he would to to New York but no one knew why. Did E J Brach have any family? Is there any place I can get some information?

    Thank You
