Early American SIG #USA Mississippi/Louisiana families #usa



I have reached dead ends on several ancestors, where they (or their parents) came >from and when.

SUMMIT, Mississippi:
Solomon HYMAN, immigrant >from Russia? Poland?ca. 1850.
Pauline LICHTENSTEIN, immigrant >from Poland? ca. 1855, married Solomon.

Sol's brother Samuel also there. Pauline had several other Lichtensteins.

BROOKHAVEN, Mississippi
Clara PFEIF(F)ER. I believe her father immigrated ca. 1850. She married Eugene Hyman >from Summit ca. 1880.

WOODVILLE, Mississippi
Edward JOSEPH >from BORDUN, Prussia (now Poland), immigrated ca. 1850
Frances HART (and several other HARTs incl. Isaac and Julia) b. 1830s in Kingston, Jamaica, BWI, immigrated ca. 1840-50
Martin ROTHSCHILD (I have plenty of info on him, but more can only help)

Thank You!
