I have been researching Anna KATZ, who is a likely sibling of my paternal
grandfather Salomon Wolf WILDER. Anna KATZ was born in Brody,
Poland and was married to Nesanel KATZ (also known as Samuel/Sandor
KATZ) and also born in Brody, Poland.
On the 1930 Census for Kings County, NY, they are shown as living at
133 E. 94th Street, Brooklyn, NY. With their children: Bertha, Clara
(Chaje), and Rose (Rozie). Other children noted on the 1925 Census for
Kings County, Brooklyn, are Bella and William. This is the same address
as noted on my uncle's "emigration declaration form" in Vienna, Austria
dated May 1938, where he states Anna KATZ is his "aunt" living in the
US. Anna KATZ was previously unknown to me as a member of my
HONIG-WILDER family, until I received a copy of this document >from
Anna and Nesanel traveled separately to the US. Nesanel arrived in 1914
with his daughter, Bella (listed as "Sandek" on the manifest according to
Ancestry.com), and Anna arrived in 1920 with 4 of their children. Since
Anna is listed as "KATZ" on the manifest it would appear that they were
already married when they traveled to the US.
Anna KATZ is buried at the Mt. Zion Cemetery, located in Maspeth, LI,
NY. Date of death was November 15, 1936. Her husband, Nesanel KATZ,
is also buried there. Date of death was August 12, 1938. Anna's death
was reported by her daughter, Hesie FUSFELD. I have been unable to
make contact with any FUSFELD relatives either.
Any information you can provide regarding living relatives would be most
appreciated. I have contacted those in the JGFF researching KATZ from
Brody, Poland, but have not had any positive replies as yet.
