Sarah Hinde KANTOR of Pinsk -possible descendant of R Chaim of Volozhin #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Does anyone know of a Sarah Hinde (maiden name unknown) who may have
been a descendant of R' Chaim of Volozhin or one of his siblings.. She
was about 30 years old during the 3rd quarter of the 19th cent. so she
would have been a granddaughter or greatgranddaughter. According to
family lore, she was orphaned at a young age, before her marriage

Sarah Hinde was the daughter of Yosef SHAT"Z of Pinsk. I am not sure
if SHAT"Z was also his family name as professionally he was a chazan
(cantor) in Pinsk. She was married to R' Shlomo KANTOR, who may have
been a Rosh Yeshiva or a Rabbi in a Yeshiva in Pinsk. His father was a
R' Eliezer of Slonim. She seems to have grown up (being an orphan?) in
the house of a Rabbi Mordechai of Razinoi (I am not sure which of the
two similar town names this is) and a Rabbi Mordechai of Karlin was a
relative of hers.

Presumably these two Mordechais are the same and he, what ever his
family name, may have served in both cities. One possibility is that
this Mordechai was R' Mordechai ZACKHEIM who did serve in both cities
but I haven't been able to confirm that this Mordechai is him and if
we are related to the ZACKHEIM family. I have been in touch with
George ZACKHEIM, of Chicago who edited the "Scattered Seeds" ( I've
seen the book) but have not been able to make any connection to that
family.

Two possibilities which I thought of are: Yosef , the lesser known son
of Reb' Chaim, who married someone >from Shershev. I am not aware of
his having lived in Pinsk and/or Karlin. Second, because of the
orphaning, a connection with R' Itzaleh (Reb' Chaim's son)"s daughter
who married R' Shmuel LANDAU both having died at a relatively young
age. Except for one daughter of this LANDAU couple (who married a well
known Rabbi (scion of the Bem-Sason family in Israel) no other
children are mentioned in published sources, but this of course
doesn't prove that they didn't have other children.

Some of the above information is based on a diary of a greatuncle of
mine, Reb Chaim Dov (ben Shlomo) KANTOR of Zichron Yacov (in Israel)
who was the Mashgiach of the Yekev (winery) in Zichron and was a well
known figure during the late 19th beg.20th cent. in Eretz Yisrael
(Palestine). He was also the father-in-law of Nachum WEISFISH (who
was murdered by arabs in the 1920s) also a well known family name of
that period.

To anyone who is well acquainted with the Volozhin family tree, and
not just R' Chaim's direct descendants, if any of the above sounds
familiar I'd be happy to hear >from you. I've perused most of the
published family tree of R' Chaim and haven't found mention of any
familiar names >from my family.

In my grandfather's (Yom Tov >Jacob Steinberg) naturalization papers, it
states that he and my grandmother (Liba Gezelman) were born in Pagol or
Pagol Village. I assume it is near Kyyiv as the family always said that's
where they were from. I have not been able to locate a town called Pagol
anywhere in the former Russian Empire. Has anyone heard of this town or do
they have suggestions about how I might locate it?

Correct town Russian name used to be Novoselitsa, currently known as
