My great grandfather came to New Haven, Ct. with his widowed mother
and three siblings (2 brothers and a sister). They came (>from Europe)
around 1870-1880. The four siblings were David, Sarah, Mayer and
Kalman). I have contact with descendants of Mayer and Kalman but over
the years we lost track of Sarah and David.
What is known about David is that he moved to Boston as a teen and
worked in a Dept. Store and seems to have worked up his way to
management. By the mid 1930s he had a winter home in Florida.
Sarah lived (or vacationed) on Coney Island in New York City where my
mother met her grandson, Tom (possibly >from Boston) on the beach in
the 1930s. He connected his grandmother to my grandfather at that
time. Tom immediately disappeared and we have not had any connection
with him or his parents or grandparents since then. I don't know
Sarah's married name.
If the above sounds familiar to anyone I'd be happy to hear >from you.
