JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Sarah ABRAMS (ABRAMOWITZ), Turn of the 19-20 cent. Boston #general
In trying to research descendants of two of my gggrandmother's children, I came
across a Sarah ABRAMS who married a divorcee Sam COHEN in Boston in 1903.
My ggreat grandmother , Gitel ABRAMOWITZ came to New Haven, Ct. as a widow with 4
children: David (?), Sarah, Meyer and Kalman. As a greatgrandson of the above Meyer
I have contact with his descendants and those of Kalman. My mother writes in her
autobiography that she met Sarah on Coney Island in the early 1930s but, we guess
due to religious differences their contact was very short.
My mother also writes that David had gone to Boston >from New Haven to "find his
future. My mother presumes that David changed his family name at somepoint and this
could make sense that Sarah shortened her name >from ABRAMOWITZ to ABRAMS.
If any of the above sounds familiar to anyone I would be happy to hear >from them.
