In the Harrisburg Patriot newspaper >from 27 December 1911 was an article
about a party in Harrisburg hosted by my relatives >from Panevezys Lithuania,
Mr. and Mrs. Hyman LANE, for their daughter Rebecca LANE. Others at the
party were young ladies identified as "Miss" including Bessie LOON, Tillie
BEAR, Ida BLOOM, Mary SHERMAN, Jennie KLAWANSKY, Rose ZAMMIT (ZOMMIT?),
Tillie ZAMMIT (ZOMMIT?), Rose KLAWANSKY, Lena LANE, Rebecca KLAWANSKY.
Others present included Mr. and Mrs. M (Max?) LANE, Mrs. S. KLAWANSKY,
Israel CLADE, David FREEDMAN, Mr. A. GERBER, Max SMERTZ, S. DANNOVITCH,
Charles GAUSS, L. POCKEROY, D. KLAWANSKY, Samuel LANE, Abraham LANE, and
Some of the families listed were neighbors of the LANE family, and some may
have been known through the local synagogue or other Jewish organizations,
or family connections.
from City Directories and Census records, I know that most of the Hyman LANEfamily moved >from Harrisburg to Philadelphia sometime after 1920.
I'm looking for information on what happened to Hyman, wife Sarah, and their
children Rebecca, Abraham, Samuel, and Lena LANE, on who the children
married, where they lived, their families, when and where they died and are
Hyman was born about 1871 and Sarah about 1874.
Rebecca was born about 1895, Abraham I have as 18 December 1899 (based on
World War I draft registration), Samuel 12 Jul 1900, and Lena between 1902 -
Any assistance would be appreciated.
