Looking for the oldest son of Jankel-Mendel and Peshe-Freide (Fradel) FLESSER / FLEYSHER from Prienai #lithuania #usa

Jankel-Mendel FLESSER / FLEYSHER (b. 1845 Prienai, d. about 1898 Prienai) and his wife Peshe-Freide /Fradel (neé Bialobrodka, b. 1858 Balbieriskis d. 1929 Prienai), apparently had 12 children, the oldest of whom left Lithuania for America before the turn of the 20th century.  He would have been born before 1879, we think.

Six of the children left Lithuania for the UK around the turn of the 20th century:

Betty / Bessie (Basia), b. 1879, married Chaim Amdorsky
Woolf, b. 1883, married Betsy 
Leah - possibly married somebody Lazarus
Kitty - never married
Max, b. 1888, married Mary 
Davis (aka David) b. 1889, married Milly Goldstein

Two left Lithuania for South Africa in the 1920s:

Benjamin, b. 1891, married Leah Binski
Morris, b. 1896

A daughter, Feyga, b. 1880, perished in Lithuania in the Holocaust, and we don't know what happened to a son, Zalman, b. 1893.

We don't know the name of the oldest son or where he went, but if any of these details ring any bells, or if anybody has any ideas of how/where to search for this missing brother, please contact me at dfletcheroz@...
