Marc I. Leavey, M.D.
I have been researching my paternal family, currently LEAVEY but was
LEVEY and LEVY over the last three generations. Hyman/Chaim LEVY
immigrated in about 1872, settling in the Philadelphia, PA area, and
ultimately having nine children. The eldest, Israel Moshe - later
Morris Israel - Levy (later Leavey) was my grandfather. With a family
story of the family name being "Elkes" or similar, I have found a
possible lead as ELKANUS in Poland, but can find no one linking to or
researching that name. Does anyone have any connection to that name or
Feel free to respond privately or in the group. Many thanks.
