Seeking descendents of Benny (Benjamin) Katz. He was living in 712-14 East 6th
Street, NYC in September, 1907 when nephew, Sam (aka Shimon) Katz came to US. He
may have had a limp and wrote beautiful calligraphy. He was living in the early
1930's, as my father (bron 1923) remembers him. We have no photographs of him. Sam
Katz was my grandfather and he lived for a time with his uncle.
Benny was the son of Aaron and Rose Katz of Zuravno, Galicia, Austria. His
brothers were Leo, Max and Jacob. He may have been the only one of the brothers to
come to the US, although many nieces and nephews came between 1907 and 1921.
