Nice find. I found a 1914 business listing for a Roseville Hotel in Newark N.J., but instead of F.W. Helbig, it named Louis Helbig as Manager. The time period seems about right so maybe hotels were a Helbig family business.

New information I've found...

In 1890 Frank William Helbig built the Roseville Hotel in Roseville/Newark New Jersey and was its proprietor. I found this and more of his life history on Google under "biographical and genealogical history of the city of Newark and Essex County" page 463. Hope this helps.

Good luck with the barter. You know the barter rules, right? Always barter up, never let the other guy get the best of you, especially when he wants the item badly. LOL :rofl:
