I'm looking for descendants of Simon (possibly Samuel/Solomon, abt/.
1880-?) and Bessie (Rebecca? (abt 1884-1917) GOLD.
This couple were originally >from Russia (Gomel region, I believe the
village Vetka); they lived in London at least long enough to have a son
Philip born there (1903); then came to Philadelphia about 1905 and had
four more children: Samuel (1905-?), Max (1907-1988?), Eva (1910-?), and
Isaac (1912-1912 - he lived only a month or so).
Philip m. Pearl (maiden name unknown) and they had two children:
Beatrice (~1926-?) and Melvin (~1930-?).
Max m. Rhea WOLKIN (1909-1997) and they had one child, Herbert (1930-?)
I have tracked this line through the Census, and just tried to reach the
youngest members I have (Melvin and Herbert; Beatrice seems too chancy
since I don't know if she married) but the numbers that come up online
so far are all defunct. (I didn't chase all the FL ones - yet!)
Simon may be related to a Ralph GOLD (whose family I've also worked on
tracking) and a Max FRIEDLIN may also be a relative.
