Hi all,
I would like to thank everyone that responded to my note. I am still
searching, but with all the ideas that were sent to me, I am sure I will
find my great grandfather's ship manifest and his country of origin. Thanks
to you wonderful people, we have found my g grandfather's mysterious 2nd
wife that no one knew the name of!
Thank you,
Fran Boss Cohen

Hi all,
I am hoping that someone in this group could guide me on this. I am at a
large brick wall with my Great Grandfather Abraham Weber. I have exhausted
all searches on Ancestry.com, MyHeritage and don't know where to begin on
JewishGen for this, there are so many Abraham Webers. He was born, according
to his tombstone, on Feb 20, 1863 and passed away on March 1, 1916. My uncle
said that he came >from Poland, others said Russia and still others say
Germany. It all depends on the map at that time. Now, there is no one left
to ask except the uncle who said Poland and he is very sick. I was hoping to
have found the country he came >from and his ship manifest before my uncle
passes, but it looks like this might not happen. I found the 1900 US Federal
Census and found him listed as Abram Wubber and immigrated to the US in 1891
from Russia. On the 1910 US Federal Census, it states that he immigrated to
the US in 1885. He did not apply for citizenship. He settled in Jersey City,
Hudson County, New Jersey. Another point regarding his year of birth, 1900
census shows him at 31 and 1910 census shows him as 29 and my great
grandmother as 41. Her name was Florence Kahn (Kannchel). She was born in
approximately 1870 and passed away in about 1911. Her tombstone was very
hard to read. They were buried in West Arlington Jewish Cemetery in West
Arlington New Jersey. I have a picture of his tombstone that I cannot attach
to this email, since it is in plain text.
Thank you in advance for your help.
