Seeking descendants of eleven LIEBOWITZ children who settled in Toronto, New York and New Jersey #usa


userflw@...
 

Looking for lost cousins!  My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Liebowitz.  She was the oldest of 10 or 11 children. Most of the children settled  in Toronto and two is New York and Edward, the youngest in New Jersey.  Anyone know anything about a family with these parameters? 

Have so far not been able to make any connections, but am still hopeful.

Thanks for reading.       Fred   <userflw@...>

More information would be very helpful. I have some NY Liebowitz families in my tree, but without first names and/or other data, it's impossible to say if they are the ones you are looking for.

To echo Barbara Sloan’s comment, do you have any other information or where they originated prior to NY/NJ? My fathers maternal family was Leibowitz from NY.

Hi my family came from Iasi Romania to the lower east side about 1900....maybe a couple of years earlier or a couple later....my gf was Mayer Leibowitz(Lebowitz) b abt 1859 d 1917  whose Mom was Leah....
first wife was Fannie and had 3 children....after she died in 1907, he m my gm Ida Goldstein Goldberg and had my Mom, Rebecca, b 1909 d 2012   I am searching for several years for
where Ida is buried in nyc....she d between 1918 and 1919....think from the 1918 flu or tb....  

Think Mayer had a sister who may have moved to Toronto...

My gm Ida's brother Michael m a Bessie Liebowtiz 1911 and had 3 children...in those years the name was either with an ie or ei or Lebowitz.....people had accents and did not speak English too well...
Her Father was David and had 2 wives and had several children.  Let me know if any possible connection.... Iris Levy Donahue

my maternal great grand father was  Ben Lebow.    He was the middle son of 9 known children of Israel David Lebowitz and Freide Lazar who passed in 1918 ad 1919 respectively (both  buried in Washington cemetery in Brooklyn)  The kids were born in various locations ranging from Ukraine, Lithuania and New York. Freide and many of the kids emigrated in 1891. Israel and the oldest two sons must have come over earlier.   I have seen the family name spelled as Liebowitz and Lebowitz,  and then it was shortened to Lebow and Jacobs depending on the sibling.     Of the nine kids here are birth years and approximately where i believe they ended up:   Charles 1870 - ???, Morris 1874 - New Jersey, Bessie 1880 - Albany NY, Abraham 1881 - NY,  William 1884 - Waukegan, IL and Los Angeles, CA, Benjamin 1888 - Connecticut, Harry 1890 - IL and Los Angeles CA, Louis 1892 - New York, and Mae/May 1895 New York. 

good luck to all in your searches

I am from Romania and the Leibovici family, currently living in Toronto. My great grand father lived in the south-west of the country in Gura Vaii, name was Marcus.

Hi Sean,  your family seems familiar to me....my gm Ida Goldstein Goldberg Leibowitz(Lebowitz) brother Michael married a Bessie Leibowitz and had 3 children.   Bessie had many siblings with the names u mention above.
Her parents were David and think Mom was a Sarah or Rebecca...not sure of the name but Bessie's siblings were like above.   They lived in the lower east side of nyc and Michael and Bessie lived for many years
later in the Bronx.  If you see any connection, please let me know.  thanks

My uncle Max Fromstein married Bessie Leibowitz also spelled Labovitch and Laibowitz in Toronto. They had three children here. Might she be part of your family? Her parents were Louis Leila Leisle Labovitch and Jennie Kamenezky or Ramenezky. I do not have birth locations for them. Bessie was born in Russia, which as we know could mean anything.

Iris,   my Bessie  married a Sam Lippman and they had 7 children.  so not the same Bessie.    If many of the sibling names are similar  maybe there is connection further back since everyone is normally named for past relatives.   unfortunately i havent figured out if my Israel Dovid Leibowitz had brothers or sisters in america, canada  or elsewhere for that matter.  his headstone lists  his father as Elchanon.
