I am hoping that someone can provide more information regarding Anna WILDER
who was married to Nesanel KATZ and resided in Brooklyn, NY. She was born
in Brody, Poland in 1871 and died on November 15, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY.
According to her burial record in JewishGen's JOWBR, her parents were Joseph
HONIG and Charlotte WILDER, which could be the "anglicized" names of Abraham
Joseph HONIG and Scheindel WILDER (my paternal great-grandparents). This
burial record also states that her Hebrew name was: "Chana Glikel bat
Abraham Joseph". This burial record was reported by her daughter Hesie
FUSFELD. I have searched for a ship manifest showing the passage for Anna
KATZ or Nesanel KATZ, as well as naturalization certificates and census
records, but have not been able to locate any of these documents in order to
find out more information.
The reason I am even more intrigued by this information is that my paternal
uncle stated in his request for immigration in Vienna, Austria that he had
family in the US. One of the people he mentioned was: Anna KATZ (his aunt)
living at 133 East 94th Street, in Brooklyn, NY. This request was made in
May 1938, and he would not have known that Anna KATZ had died in 1936.
If anyone has more information to share about Anna KATZ and her family,
please contact me privately.
