I am searching for the whereabouts of my great aunt, Esther Levine/Luria
TAUFIELD, who seems to have disappeared >from records after 1925-1926.
Esther was married to Adolf/Adolph TAUFIELD. They can be found in the 1925
NY State Census records as living at 64 Vermilyea Av. NY, NY (Bronx?) (A.D.
#23, line # 48, pg. 18).
Adolf, a barber, died in 1926. The residence was still at 64 Vermilyea Av
at the time of death in June. He was buried at the United Hebrew Cemetery
(Richmond County, Staten Island, NY). I checked with the cemetery, but
Esther was not buried there, although several other Taufields were.
Adolph & Esther had a young child, Fanny, who died in 1904 and was buried
in the Silver Lake Cemetery, in Silver lake, S.I., NY, according to the NY
Hebrew Burial Records (HFBA). Esther was not buried there either. (I asked
the cemetery for information).
I also spoke with Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY, in case Esther was
buried at the same cemetery as her parents, Solomon & Rebecca LEVINE, but
no luck there either.
Of course, there is always the possibility that Esther remarried, but I
haven't found any marriage records for her.
The last name has been variously misspelled in records as: TANFIELD, TEUFELD,
SANFELD, LANFIELD, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to search
Thank you for your help.
