Re: Searching descendants of Simcha SCHECHTER, (Brooklyn NY early 1900’s)

I like Sam Schechter born about 1865 who says he arrived in the US 3 Feb 1881.

In the 1910 census Sam and his wife Sarah have 6 children. Sarah says she has given birth to 8 children, 6 living.
And in 1910 they live on Havemeyer Street in Brooklyn which is quite close to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Here is the family in 1910.
