Richard H. Lenkeit was the managing director and treasurer of the Canadian Automatic Fender Company Limited. He lived at 2058 Beach Avenue in 1914.

It appears that he was Richard Herman Lenkeit (sometimes spelled “Lenkeith”). He was born in Eydtkuhnen, Germany, on October 7, 1863. His parents were George and Augusta Lenkeit.

In January 1882, in New York City, Richard enlisted with the United States navy.

His time of service was short: he was discharged from the navy in February 1882.

Marriage to Alice Winifred Brady

On August 1, 1887, in Girgaum, Bombay, India (now known as Girgaon, Mumbai), Richard married Alice Winifred Brady, who was born about 1869. Her father was Percival Henry William Brady (born about 1843). Alice’s mother was Janet Harriett Rendell (born about 1852).

Richard and Alice spent a few years in Bombay. In February 1895, Alice arrived in New York City. By the summer of 1895, Alice was in Vermont, giving a talk on the women of India. She was staying at the “Elmwood House,” which was a boarding house in Walpole, New Hampshire, operated by Curtis R. Crowell (1835-1914).

Richard, perhaps with Alice, later went to South Africa. In 1906, Richard sailed from Cherbourg, France, to New York City. He indicated that his last place of residence was South Africa.

In 1909 Richard was the president of the International Petroleum and Oil Development Company. This company was the first oil company to list its stock on the Salt Lake Stock and Mining Exchange. The company planned to develop oil-bearing lands along the Union Pacific Railroad in Wyoming. It also had lands in Wyoming that it said were likely good sources of coal. However, the company does not seem to have been successful.

Margarethe Lenkeit (possibly née Mosler)

Richard Lenkeit appears to have married a woman named Margaret (perhaps Margarethe Mosler). By 1910, Margarethe Lenkeit sailed on the S.S. Amerika from Hamburg, Germany, to New York City. She had been living in Trebbin, Germany, and she stated that she was going to join her husband in New York. Her contact person was her father, who appears to have been Dr. Mosler in Trebbin.

In 1911, Margaret Lenkeit again sailed from Hamburg to New York City, this time on the Lusitania. Her husband, R.H. Lenkeit, was at the Hotel Esplanade in Berlin.

In 1912, Margaret and her daughter, Gisella Usa Lenkeit, sailed on the President Grant from Hamburg to New York City. They were on their way to Vancouver.

 

Richard Lenkeit in Vancouver

It appears that Richard’s stay in Vancouver was brief: he appeared in the Vancouver directories only in 1914.

He was the managing director and treasurer of the Canadian Automatic Fender Company Limited. (William Massey Silcock was the secretary of the company.) Richard was living at 2058 Beach Avenue.

Canadian Automatic Fender Company

The object of the Canadian Automatic Fender Company was to build and sell a “fender” that would go the front of a tram car to capture objects instead of having the tram car run over them.

Robert Pogue of New Westminster, British Columbia, had invented a street car fender. He had started a company hat would build and sell the fender to tram car operators.

The Daily News (New Westminster), March 20, 1912, page 1; https://open.library.ubc.ca/collections/bcnewspapers/nwdn/items/1.0317783#p0z-3r0f:

However, by 1913, Robert Pogue sued to get his patents, models, and tools from the company.

It is not clear if the Canadian Automatic Fender Company was a successor to Robert Pogue’s company, or if it was a competitor. In any case, the Canadian Automatic Fender Company seems to have stopped operating after 1915.

 

Later Life in the United States

In April 1915, Richard went to live in the United States, travelling first to Portland, Oregon, and then to San Francisco.

In September 1915, he was the defendant in a lawsuit filed in Nevada. It appears that this may have been a matrimonial matter involving Margaret.

From 1915 to 1918 he was a broker in San Francisco, California.

The 1917 San Francisco directory listed him as Richard H. Lenkert. (This may be a spelling error in the directory. However, he may also have been using this surname to reduce his German connection during the First World War.)

Crocker-Langley San Francisco Directory for the Year Commencing 1917, page 1212; https://archive.org/stream/crockerlangleysa1917sanf#page/1212/mode/1up.

In 1918, Richard registered with United States authorities as an “alien enemy.”

In 1923, in Massachusetts, Richard became a naturalized United States citizen. The naturalization documents showed Richard as still married to Margaret.

In 1928, Richard sailed with his daughter, Usa, on the S.S. Cleveland from Hamburg, Germany, to New York City.

Richard died on January 7, 1930. He was buried in Newton Cemetery, in Newton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts

It appears that Alice died in Liverpool, England, in 1956, and that she was buried in Ruabon, Denbighshire, Wales.

No further information is available for Margarethe.

Richard had the following children.

 

Richard Waldemar Lenkeit

Richard Waldemar Lenkeit was born on May 14, 1888, in Calcutta, India.

In 1914 he was a resident of the United States, when he sailed from Liverpool to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

In 1942 he registered with the United States draft system. He was living at 2039 Broadway in New York City, and he was working with the Grace Line.

 

Gladys Vera Lenkeit

Gladys Vera Lenkeit was born in India on November 9, 1890. She was christened in Calcutta, Bengal, India, on January 11, 1891.

In 1895, she travelled with her mother from Hamburg, Germany, to New York City.

In 1924, in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England, she married Hubert J. Frost.

Gladys died in 1972 in Barnet, Middlesex, England.

 

Gisella Usa Lenkeith

Gisella Usa Lenkeith was born in Berlin, Germany in 1911.

In 1912 she sailed with her mother, Margarethe, from Hamburg, Germany to New York City. She and her mother were on their way to Vancouver.
