Looking for Arsonist’s Family #usa


Jeff Marx
 

In 1896, the NY papers were filled with the sensational news of Isaac Zucker/Zuker, who headed a gang of arsonists, and who was sentenced to 36 years at Sing Sing prison. I’m writing an article about him and trying to track down his descendants. However, I cannot find his wife and children in the 1900 and subsequent censuses, while Isaac is in prison.

The family is found in the 1880 US (Phil) census “Isaac Zeucker” and in the 1895 NJ state census (“Isaac Zuker”). Newspaper accounts list his children as Willie, Annie, Charlie, another daughter, and wife (Rosa or Rachel), a brother, Abraham Zuker, and state that Isaac was born c. 1847/48 and came to the US around 1878.  

Any of you super sleuths able to help with this?
