Josh Marks <josh@...>
 

I was hoping someone might be able to help me with my surname.

The furthest ancestors that we know of are:
Wolf (Aron Zaiv) MARKS (b. 1857 Russia? - d. 07 Nov 1924)
Sarah JOSEPH (b. 1860 Russia? d 09 Feb 1934)
Death certificates indicate the following:
Wolf Marks's parents: Harris Marks and Mary Weiss
Sarah Joseph's parents: Isaac Joseph and Ethel Cohen

Wolf and Sarah moved >from Russia to England around 1880/1881 and gave
birth to two boys:
- Herman Marks (b. 22 Nov 1882 - d. 02 Aug 1981), never married
- Joseph Marks (b. 09 Jul 1886 - d. 11 Oct 1962), married Dora Shapiro

Between July of 1886 and July of 188, the moved to NYC, where they had 6
more children:
- Bertha Marks (b. 18 Jul 1888 - d. 25 Jan 1972) , never married
- Frances Marks (b. 1890 - 1972), married Sol Coan
- Jacob [Jack] Marks (Jan 1895 - 28 Apr 1968), married Cecil Brozen
- Tessie Marks (b. 05 Jul 1895 - Dec 1968), married Samuel Rodnick
- Harry Marks (b. 18 Feb 1896 - 18 Aug 1962), married Rose Bartelstone
- Ethel Marks (b. 15 Sep 1904 - Abt. 1990), married Phillip Taft

If you have any information, I would really, really appreciate the help.
Thanks very much in advance
