With the help of the JGS of Montreal, I recently located the grave of my
great grandmother Rosie (FREINDLICH) SAMLAN, who died March 21, 1915 and in
buried in Back River Cemetery there. It is possible that she was >from Romania.
She left one son, Abraham (my grandfather), born in February 1895. He
claimed to be born in Montreal, although we have no birth record to confirm that.
I am trying to locate any information about Rosie's life, including and
especially Canadian/Quebec immigration information. I'm also trying to locate any
Romanian documents or records that might shed some light on the life of her
husband, Moses, about whom we know only that he was born in Romania,
supposedly died in a war -- family legend has it as the Spanish-American War. We have
no burial information.
Any information, leads or ideas appreciated.
