My cousins and I are stumped by the disappearance >from the archival
record of a potential daughter of our ancestor Moshe-Yaacov "Morris"
PARNES. In the 1901 census in England, Morris PARNES is living at 3
Mulberry St. in Mile End Old Town with his supposed daughter Betsy
PARNES (born in 1877). In the archival record for their hometown of
Bialy Kamien, this Betsy PARNES might be listed as Basia PARNES,
daughter of Moses PARNES and Schenczi KATZ.
Between 1901 and 1910, however, all trace of her is lost in the
archival record. No marriage certificate, no mentions of emigration,
not even a death certificate. We assume that potentially this daughter
died as my great-grandmother Betsy PARNES may have been named for her.
The missing daughter may have also gone by the name Sarah PARNES.
Any ideas would be sorely appreciated as we have been going around in
circles debating the issue for months now.
