Hi Waltertoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I do have information on Isabella (known as Tizzie) Jacob Levenston born 1
January 1872 in Dublin. I got the information >from Zvi Silver who is a
Levenston descendent and an expert on the family. My great Aunt was briefly
married to Michael Levenston a theatre impresario who was >from the Glasgow
branch of the family.
I will forward this e-mail to him and ask him to contact you as I am just
about to go on holiday for a week. If you don't hear anything let me know
as Zvi has very poor eyesight and may need help reading his e-mails. He is
always very keen to help.
Again, briefly, Benjamin was born 1 March 1869 in Sunderland, County Durham
(son of David Davis and Ethel May Humphreys) whose occupation was Draper and
Jeweller. He died on April 1946 in Glasgow, Scotland.
Benjamin and Isabella were married on 21 August 1890 in Dublin Register
office. I have all the children listed and most were born in either the
England (Liverpool) or Ireland (Cork). If I get a chance later I'll scan
the relevant pages of the tree. I can find no mention of South Africa.
