JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Westchester School 1910 and WEISBERG #general

Herman WEISBERG (1900 - 1985) was born in Brooklyn, the son of Simon and
Eva WEISBERG. Simon and Eva both came >from Romania. The family appears in
the 1910 Census in Brooklyn living with Eva's parents (Moses and Malke
HOROWITZ), but are missing as a family unit in the 1910 Census.

The 1910 Census has a Simon WEISBERG, widower, age 33 born in Romania,
living with friends in Manhattan.

The same 1910 Census has Herman WEISBERG, age 10, listed as a Scholar with
14 other scholars at a private school on Harrison Ave. in Harrison
Township, Westchester County. An additional scholar is a Leon WEISBERG, age 8.

In the 1920 Census, Herman, age 19, and Leon WEISBERG, age 17, are boarders
in an apartment in the Bronx.

I'm "assuming" that Eva died, Simon couldn't care for the children and sent
them to a boarding school.
Does anybody know of such a school on Harrison Avenue (no number given in
the census). It's too difficult to make out the name of the head of the
school on the census form.
Naturally, if anybody knows of either Leon or Herman Weisberg, please
contact me directly at the email address below. Thanks.
