I’m looking for the following families and/or information about them please.
1. Anna (aka Annie) SAMUEL nee GROSS. She was married to Paul Y SAMUEL (YANPOLSKI). Annie was born in Leeds, UK in 1866 and died on 14 Oct 1937 in Chicago. I have a lot of information about her husband but have no idea why she was in Chicago. Can someone help with this? Anna’s mother was Sarah Gross nee Sloman, sister to Jessie below.
2. Samuel GROSS (1824-1917) married Jessie SLOMAN (1842-1910) in 1859 in Leeds, Yorkshire, UK. They emigrated almost at once for the USA and settled in Brooklyn, NYC where their four children were born.
a) Hyman (1861-1925) married Lillian Guinzberg (1867-?1930). She was born somewhere in Pennsylvania. They had two sons - Walter E (1890-1964) and Howard J (1897-?).
i) Walter married Anne Strassner (1899-1990) and they had two sons - Stanley H (1923-?) and Harold Victor (1925-2015).
ii) Harold married Esther H Utal (1925-1968) who was born and died in New York. Their son was Donald S Gross (1952- ).
