FISHER of Philadelphia - Kate Winokur Fisher's second husband Max STUPP #general

bette_sscf <bette_sscf@...>
 

Famous singer Eddie Fisher was born 1928 in Philadelphia, one of seven
children of Joseph Fisher and Kate Winokur >from Russia who married after
immigration. In the 1920 census, Joseph, Kate and their oldest son Solomon
were living with Kate's family in Philadelphia.

Joseph Fisher's parents, siblings and ancestral town are unknown but they
could be >from the Warsaw or Lomza area in the Russian Empire before WWI.

Kate's 1991 obituary states she was married to second husband Max STUPP for
16 years before his death in 1968.

A possibility in the SSDI is Max Stupp b 15 Mar 1893 d Aug 1966 last
residence Philadelphia. Possible documents:
~ 1917 WWI draft registration for Max Stup age 22, 147 Jackson St
Philadelphia born Mar 15, 1894 Austria naturalized tailor married with one
child
~ 1930 census for Max Stup age 36 (married age 19) wife Lena 35, son Irvin B
8, niece Anna Watchel 25, 2601 South Sixth St Philadelphia, grocery store
owner born Austria immigration 1899 naturalized

If anyone has information about Kate Winokur Fisher's second husband Max
STUPP, such as names of parents, siblings and/or ancestral town in Austria,
I would appreciate hearing >from you privately.

Gubernia (now Poland). She was the daughter of Benjamin Dov FISHER and his
wife Sarah PRISNOST (possible spelling). Her first husband was Moshe Yankel
SILBERSTEIN, died 1885 in Makow. After he died she married Mendel GURMAN. In
1912 she came to NY where she died. I might guess that the Philadelphia
Fishers were descended >from a nephew of Rifka, son of a presumed brother.
Perhaps someone knows of a Philadelphia Fisher family who came >from the area
north of Warsaw.>

Re: Can you help with an obit lookup in New York? - - Alternatives #general

When looking up older New York State obits or death notices, also check
with this site:

http://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html

They have a huge collection of searchable, digitized historical New York
State newspapers, not just New York City ones. To see the list click on
"FAQ/help/index," box on the top right of the page, then "click here" words
on the subpage to see a list of newspapers.

A terrific, free, resource. Also check the local genealogical societies.
Most larger areas have one.

JRI Poland #Poland Researches ALTERMAN family in Poland #poland

Christine Usdin
 

My GreatGrandmother Sarah ALTERMAN was born in Vishki, Latvia in 1861/
1862 to Kusiel, born to Gershen in about 1833.
Her Grandfather Gershon ALTERMAN had at least children:

- Khaim- Shmuel ALTERMAN( .( aged 39 according to the family list of
1875, by outward appearance). He was a shop- assistant in Dvinsk and
married to Rokha, the daughter of Leib >from Jakobstadt.)

- Gershon ALTERMAN, born in 1877( aged 2 according to the family list
of 1875 and aged 26 in the Dvinsk 1897 census, by outward appearance)
- and my GGGrandfather Kusiel ALTERMAN.

My Grandfather said, that my Great Grandmother Sarah ALTERMAN was
Polish, which means, that her father Kusiel ALTERMAN was registered
in Poland.

She married my Great Grandfather Beines Usdin in about 1883 in Vishki,
Latvia.

My question is: where could I write in Poland to have info?
Answer privatly or here.
The page, I made about SARAH ALTERMAN is here:

MODERATOR'S NOTE: As a first step you could try searching the

for Alterman as a surname and Sarah as a given name and see if any
of the results may appear to match what you know.
