Does anyone recognise this lady?


She arrived at New York on 13 Jun 1892, single, apparently alone and allegedly aged 16, having sailed from Hamburg on the "Rugia".
Her native country was Russia and her last residence Plock.

We believe that, as "Dora Davis", she was married to Harry Fox in Boston on 26 Jul 1896 by D. Rosenthal, Minister of the Cong(regation?) of Wilno.
Her age was given as 20, her place of birth as Russia and her parents named as David and Fanny.

She was subsequently, as Dora Fox nee Davis, married to Myer Liss in Boston on 19 Dec 1905.
This time her age was given as 24, her place of birth as England and her parents named as David Davis and Fanny Rosenthal.

Any and all information, and suggestions, gratefully received.

Mike,

Have you seen Dora LISS'  U.S. passport application in 1920?
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99X3-9SXB?i=356&cc=2185145&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQV5B-H8BX

There is a photo of Dora on the 2nd page of the application:

Hi Sherri,

Thanks for your interest.

Yes, I have that.

As you may have gathered, she is a lady of some mystery and I'm trying to discover who she was before she became "Davis" and her origins.

Dora and Meyer are in the US census for both 1910 and 1920 in Springfield MA.   (Indexed on Ancestry as Si?s in 1920 and Liss in 1920).  No children in either year.
Myer is in the Boston City directory for Boston in 1906 on Cunard St., This is the street where Dora lives on the marriage record. He  Is in subsequent Boston City directories for 1907 & 8. He Is absent in1909.
Myer is in Springfield MA City directories 1909 - 1922. In the 1923 directory it says "rem. west", i.e removed/moved West.

Myer Liss and Dora were reported as having moved West in 1923.  I located them in Los Angeles in the census of 1930 and 1940.  She is not difficult to identify in the census because she was born in England.
