I am doing some research into a branch of my family originally of
Itchak Aizik DEN (1847-1925) married Goda Malka (Molly) HERSCH. The
family genealogist discovered this branch of the family in Australia
and I am familiar with some of it. Here is what I know:
Benjamin DEN, born in 1875 in Taurage, Lithuania, may have been a
Reuben DEN, born in 1877 in Taurage, changed his name to REUBENSOHN and
married Anne NEUMAN, born in 1885. The family moved to Johannesburg,
South Africa, where Reuben became known in the mining business. His
daughter Ruth married Zavel JAFFE and had two children, Allan and Renee
(who married Meyer PESACH). The second daughter was named Lucille.
Reuben died in 1942 in Johannesburg.
Aaron DEN, born in 1879 in Taurage, married Khana SUSSMAN and had one
son, Labke (Leon). They may have died in the Shoah.
Yossel DEN, born in 1890 in Taurage, married Rebeka KATZ, born in 1893.
Julius DEN lived in South Africa; his children eventually lived in the
United States, South Africa, Australia, and Israel.
Rebecca DEN married Louis ORLOVSKY and their children lived in the
Jacob DEN lived in Lithuania; his children lived in Australia.
Any information regarding this branch of the family would be appreciated.
