Michael SANDMAN, Long Island, NY > Middletown, NY Asylum #general

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

Michael SANDMAN, born in Prussia around 1820, came to
the United States about 1850. He had a clothing store
in Glen Cove, Long Island, NY. (Town of Oyster Bay,
first in Queens County, then in Nassau County)

Abstracted >from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
10/14/1890 p.1 M. Sandman, having been pronounced
insane, will be taken to the state hospital at
Middletown.

12/21/1890 p.14 Michael Sandman, Glen Cove, died in
the asylum at Middleton, October last leaving estate
valued at $10,000. First wife had 3 children Morris,
Henry, Nancy Sandman. Second wife had 5 children, all
living. Left all real estate to widow, children from
first marriage contesting.

My questions are:
1) Where would Michael SANDMAN likely be buried?
Would he be left at the asylum in Middletown, or would
a wealthy man be brought home to be buried on Long
Island?

2) Should there be court documents regarding the
contested will somewhere on Long Island? What would
be the most likely location to find them?

Thank you for your help.

Yiddish translation request for two letter fragments #general

Martin Fischer
 

I previously posted these two Yiddish letter fragments to ViewMate, but no
one volunteered to translate them. I apologize if either or both of them are
upside down. They have been archived in ViewMate at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=5718

and

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=5719

These are fragments of a letter, so I would understand if they do not quite
make sense when translated, however, my knowledge of the LANDMAN family
history may help me decipher them if someone would be kind enough to
translate them into English.

Many thanks for any assistance.

I was very interested in your letter because my mother's family spent time
in Shepatovka on the way to Perth, Australia. When the Russians pulled out
of the First World War, my family lived in a small stetl called Nikopol half
way between Kiev and Odessa on the Dneiper River.Through good fortune (a
story in itself) they were able to get on a Repatriation Train for Polish
Prisoners of War going home to Poland. Unfortunately they had to get off the
train at Shepatovka and could not cross over the border when my grandfather
became ill with Typhus. He died there and it took more than two years
before they could obtain papers to continue their journey and so they spent
time there.

Dear Genners,

While in Israel this past February, I met with my Mother's second cousins
and discovered a new sister of my ggm who evidently left Romania in 1906 and
went to Montreal.

Descendants are supposedly still living in Montreal. Would someone in
Montreal be kind enough to help me with a lookup.

Please reply to me directly.

Missing Identity of child survivors of Holocaust #general

Eva Floersheim
 

The website Missing Identity presents more than 60 child survivors of
Holocaust who are still searching for information about themselves and
their families. http://www.jewishgen.org/missing-identity
Many of these live here in Israel, some in North America, but several
still live in Poland. This last group often did not know about their
Jewish background till just a few years ago.

Perhaps you will be able to help these young survivors after reading the
profiles?
Perhaps you will be able to connect them back to their original Jewish
families?

Thank you in advance.

Dear Group;
Do any of you know any TIMONER? I do not see this name listed in the
Family Finder, so I am hoping someone might happen to know of this
family. Murray Timoner, born late 1920's New York, son of Benjamin and
Rose, is my father's cousin.
If this sounds at all familiar to anyone, I will be very happy to hear
from you, privetly of course.
Thank you very much,

Re: The Name Yvonne #general

hennynow
 

In response to Julius Cohen's query, "I am looking for the origins of the
name Yvonne. Is it a common Jewish name or is there a Jewish male or
female equivalent?"

It is a common "French" name. Yvonne is the feminine form of the name Yves
or Yvon. These first names were common in Bretagne - or, in English,
Brittany - the northwestern part of France. The people of Bretagne had
their own language. If memory serves me right, Yves and Yvonne are the
equivalent of the French names Jean and Jeanne.

My favorite doll in Belgium, when I was a four year old, in 1928, was named
Yvonne.
