JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Abraham JACOBS Info on ViewMate - Need Help Reading #general
Please view at
Two items are posted on Viewmate regarding Abraham Jacobs. On his Death
Certificate, help is needed reading the given name and middle initial of
Abraham's father and the maiden name of his mother.
The second item is Abraham's obituary which shows Mollie as his widow. Her
maiden name or any other information about her is unknown to us. Some census
information shows a Mollie Jacobs to be the daughter of Tillie/Lillie
Harris. Could she have been Abraham's daughter and not his widow? Does the
name Tillie or Lillie Harris connect with anyone's family?
It is possible that Abraham was related to Chaim/Hyman Jacobs who may have
been married to Sarah. If they are related, they could be brothers or father
Thank you for your suggestions of the spellings of these names. Hopefully,
there will also be a connection on these documents to a genner's family
Please reply privately.
TIA for your responses.
