Dear JGenners,
I am attempting to locate living descendants of the GABRIEL family of
Philadelphia. Between family memories, Ellis Island records and census
records I know quite a bit about them, but no one seems to remember where
the current descendants are though they should be in the Philadelphia
area. I will outline what I know in the hope that it rings a bell with
someone out there:
Elka (Rebecca/Anna KANTOROWITZ m. Abraham GABRIELOW later GABRIEL
Minnie GABRIEL b. ca. 1907 New Jersey or Philadelphia
m. Mr. BARIZONI (sp.?)
Evelyn GABRIEL b. ca. 1911 Philadelphia
m. Harry BLEIMAN
one or more children, names unknown (all lived in Philadelphia)
Florence GABRIEL b. 26 May 1914 d. 28 July 1992 Philadelphia
(never married)
Bernard GABRIEL b. 15 May 1919 d. April 1987 Philadelphia
m. Esther
Karl GABRIEL b. ca. Aug. 1929 Philadelphia
m. 1 Sylvia
m. 2 Barbara
four children, names unknown
In 1982, Karl GABRIEL was living in Doylestown and running a cosmetics
testing lab for L'Oreal, according to a cousin who saw him at that
time. However, he no longer lives in Doylestown. There are various
Karl/Carl GABRIELs in Pennsylvania and before embarking on a series of
phone calls, I'm hoping these names sound familiar to someone. I think
Karl is the last of the siblings still alive.
In 1930 the entire family was living at xxx S. Eighth Street, Philadelphia
and Abraham had a grocery store. Elka and Abraham were >from Baranovici,
Minsk gubernia, Russia. Elka was my great-great-aunt. I'm crossing my
fingers. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yours, Jenny Schwartzberg

Chicago, IL
