gefangener #general

paul schneider <pschneid24@...>
 

My mother used to tell me that her father was conscipted >from Poland into the
Russian WWI army...and that he was thus called a "gefangener." Does anyone
have any better insight into this word and its definition?


Searching for information on Rabbi Samuel MOHILEVER #general

Bonnie Pollack <bpollack@...>
 

I have hit a dead end. My grandfather Dov Ber MOGELEVER told his children
that he was the grandson on Rabbi Samuel MOHILEVER. He told his children
that his father David Chaim was a son of the Rabbi. I cannot seem to
prove this. While I have found relatives in Israel I cannot make the
final link. My questions: Does anyone have biographical information on
Rabbi Samuel MOHILEVER of Bialystok Poland in English or may know whre to
find it. Researcher Philip Moliver is trying to link Yom Tov (as I
understand it ) to the same Rabbi. If Eliezer and Yom Tov are the same
name I think I have a piece of the puzzle. Dov Ber and his father David
Chaim were >from David Gorodok. I even joined the "David Gorodok" society
and still no information that would help make the connection.

Has anyone done research on David Gorodok and give me hints on finding
David Chaim and his family (MOHILEVER/MOGELEFSKY)

Tracing Benjamin MARTIN[EZ] of the Royal Horse Artillery #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

A famous incident during the British Army's retreat >from Mons, at the start
of World War I, was the stand by 'L' Battery of the Royal Horse Artillery
against overwhelming German odds. Most of the men were killed, several
Victoria Crosses were won. There are several statements in print that one
of those who took part was a Jewish artilleryman, Driver Benjamin MARTIN
who was among those killed on the day, 1 September 1914. The next month his
brother, Sgt Alfred MARTIN of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers was killed. He had
been married at the Sephardi synagogue and their names are recorded on the
Sephardi Memorial Tablet to deceased Jewish soldiers of that war as well as
on the memorial tablet of the defunct East London Synagogue which is now
housed at Waltham Abbey Cemetery.

They were obviously Regular Army soldiers or Reservists and came >from a
military family. A cousin Pte Baron MARTIN (sc Baron NUNES MARTINEZ) wrote
to a Jewish newspaper in 1915 about his two deceased cousins mentioning
that he had two brothers in the army as well as many other members of his
family. He was awarded the Military Medal during the war.

As to Dvr Benjamin MARTIN. When I tried to find out more about him I came
up against a brick wall. He didn't seem to exist. I couldn't find him in
any of the official army records that I consulted. Asoldier named MARTIN in
that unit was killed on that day but his forename was Charles. A Benjamin
MARTIN of the unit died a couple of weeks later and he came >from Bow - that
sounded useful since Bow is in the East End of London where the Martins
lived. But this Bow turned out to be a village in Devonshire.

I wonder if anyone has any knowledge of Benjamin MARTIN[EZ]? To anticipate,
I have consulted the Hon Archivist of the Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue in
London as well as World War I sites and discussion groups on the Internet,
but have drawn blanks.

A private reply would be welcome.

Searching: GOLDBERG in Chicago #general

Richard.Sapon-White@...
 

I am trying to track down the present-day descendants of my maternal grandmother's brother, Jake GOLDBERG. Thanks to some kind help >from Carol Adler Zsolnay, I now have the names and birth years for most of Jake's children (>from the 1920 census). If you recognize any of the information here, please contact me at the email address below. Thank you!

Jake was born in or near Slutsk, in what is now Belarus, around 1876, the son of Yossel Leib CHAIKIN and Soreh Yentl SIEGEL. He emigrated to the US in 1894; his name, and that of his siblings, was changed to GOLDBERG at some point during his journey. He first lived in NYC. After his marriage (ca. 1908) to Fannie (b. 1886) in NYC, they moved to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. In 1920, still living in Prairie du Chien, were the following children:

Mary age 10
Jennie age 9
Joe age 7
Goldie age 4
Dora age 2
Robert age 1 1/2

In the 1920 census, Jake's occupation is listed as scrap iron dealer. In the late 1920's the family moved to Chicago. They were visited there by my mother's family, the PLOTKIN family, in 1933.

Again, if you're related to any of these folks, or know of their descendants, please let me know.
