My g-g-g-grandmother was named Udel (maiden surname Glickman) Goldstein, from Jasse, Romania.

Udel came to the USA circa 1890 to be with her daughter, my g-g-grandmother Rebecca (Goldstein) Brecher. I think that Udel's husband Samuel Goldstein died in Romania.
Rebecca had come to the USA in 1886, shortly after her marriage (to Hersch Brecher). According to the family story, Hersch promised to take her to America if she would marry him.

Udel died in NY sometime before 1907. In the USA, she went by the name Adele.
