I would be grateful for any and all information or hints
to further research about the below mentioned families:

******************
* PROPIS - LURIE *
******************

I. (--?--) PROPIS
(He is *presumed* to have lived in Lithuania=20
- but that has not been substantiated yet).
PROPIS had three known children:
A. (--?--) PROPIS lived in 1908 at Odessa, Ukraine.
B. M PROPIS lived in 1908 at 67, Greene Street, New York,
New York, USA.
C. Susel PROPIS was also known as Jennie. She was born circa 1874
according to the Passenger List) at Vitebsk, Russia. Or she was
born circa 1880 in Russia (according to 1920 Census).
She married Max LURIE (4) before 1894 (as their oldest daughter
was born that year). She came to New York 1 May 1908 onboard the
"Lusitania". She paid for her passage herself, but family lore
has it that her brother(s) paid her passage. Family lore also has
it that her husband Max came to the US later =96 after 1908.

According to the census 1920 she was a widow and lived in at 270
Prince Street, Essex county, New Jersey, USA.

*** When Max LURIE came to the US and what happened to him later
is unknown. The last we know of him is that he fathered Mary born
1910. So any and all information or hints as to his fate would
be greatly appreciated. ***
