His wife, Tauba (Tillie) KAGAN Weisman arrived in the USA in 1911 with the
four children:

Manifest of Passengers on SS LITUANIA arrived in New York on 17 July 1911:
WEISSMAN, Taube, 40, female, housewife, Russia, Hebrew, Cechanowetz, Godno
gub.; schoolboy Gdabic, 13; Schewe, female, 15, dressmaker; Jochwed, male,
10, child; Moschko, male, 7, child; relative in Cechanowetz, Godno gub.
Tannel Cohn? There appears to be 4 children, but only 3 show up in the 1920
census. Samantha Mauro indicates that Taube is Tillie; Goalie is James;
Jochwed is Jeanette, and Moschko is Maurice.

Is there anyone researching these families?
