I am looking for descendants of Jacob L. and Bessie (MARCUS) BLOCK. They
were both born in Lithuania, probably in the region between Telz and Memel,
and they immigrated to New York in about 1885. Jacob and Bessie had 5
children: Joseph (married Dorothy BASS), Dora (married Louis ROSENBERG),
Sadie (married Harry COHEN), Isadore, and Jeanette (married Herbert BLOCH).
Jacob and Bessie are buried in Union Fields cemetery in Queens, NY. I am
also looking for descendants of Bessie MARCUS' brother, Max MARCUS. Max
married Lena and we believe they had 8 children. We believe Max arrived in
New York in 1881. The MARCUS and BLOCK families were members of Beth
Hamedrash Hagodol, 60 Norfolk Street, on New York's Lower East Side. Any
leads would be appreciated. Thank you.
