Margaret Fullarton and David Mark
I am trying to establish a relationship between my husband's family and various
people whose photos we have. I know who these people belong to in the US but
am totally confused as to why my mother in law's family held these photos.
The photos are of a Zelda Kaplan with the writing on the back saying Aunt Zelda
Kaplan and various baby photos and one of Gussie Levine Saltzmann. I have found
out that Gussie was born Levine but her father died and her mother married a
Saltzmann who was a widower. There is no record of her mother's maiden name nor a
record of her father's death (could be Israel or Isaac Levine) which is said to
have been a railway accident before the turn of the 20th century. The family lived
Gussie married a William Krelitz and two of the photos are of two of her
daughters, Janis and Leona.
If anyone can point me in the direction of finding the connection to this family
I would be grateful. The name most likely to be related is TOFF but it could be
MARK or NAYMARK (with its varied spelling) - the photos were found with one of
Rosie Toff, wife of Barnett Toff who migrated to Manchester England about 1890 from
Lithuania - where in Lithuania I have no idea as TOFF is not found on most
databases on Jewishgen.
