Searching descendants of my G-uncle Robert ABRAHAMSOHN who lived in Portland, Oregon. #germany #usa #russia

My grandfather Alexander Abrahamsohn and his brother Robert were born in Velikye Luki, Russia. Eventually they moved to Tuetz (West Prussia), presently Tuczno (Poland). Robert emigrated to the US and lived in Portland, Oregon. I heard from my father that in 1905 he visited his brother Alexander in Berlin. Since then we know almost nothing about him and about his offspring. A search on the Federal Census of 1920 gave the following: Robert Abrahamson, wife Anna, daughter Pearl. Any information would make me very happy. I thank you in advance.

Hello Paulo,

I was able to find the family on more censuses, which were badly
indexed on Ancestry. (Look for Robert Abrahamham in 1900 and Robert
Abraham in 1910.)

Here's what I learned:

Robert ABRAHAMSON b: 6 Dec 1853 d: 21 Jul 1922 Portland OR
+ Annie EPSTEYN b: c1863 Michigan m: 1887 d: _____ ?

...... Nissim ABRAHAMSON b: 1 Jun 1889 Portland OR d: 6 Jan 1962 Winatchee WA
...... + Myrtle DONAHUE

(See the Hoyt Family Tree on Ancestry for Nissim's descendants.)

...... Edith ABRAHAMSON b: 22 Jul 1892 Portland OR d: 24 Jan 1978 WA
...... + Maier KASPER

........... Frances Margaret KASPER b: 1923 d: 2014
........... + Sidney WEINER

(See the Weiner Family Tree on Ancestry for more information about this family.)

...... Pearl Rose ABRAHAMSON b: c1894 Oregon d: 23 Dec 1935 Auburn WA

...... Morton A. ABRAHAMSON b: c1900 Oregon d: 14 Sep 1913

Memorials for Robert, Nissim, Pearl and Morton are on FindaGrave. Note
that Robert was a rabbi.

I'm sure there's much more to be discovered. Good luck!

I have been in touch with Paulo and sent him many references to his great-uncle, who was a rabbi in Portland, Oregon.  One of my friends, a multi-generational Portlander, also joined in the fun looking.  He now has articles, pictures and more.  I love to see that we each approach a research question differently yet all find valid information.

I received many messages with very valuable information, photos, newspaper articles, videos, regarding the search about my grand-uncle Robert Abrahamson as well about his wife and child. I am deeply grateful to all of you who provided this information, as I have been looking for it for a long time. I will now continue and try to find  his living descendants.  Paulo Abrahamsohn.
