In my last post I thanked my cousin Peter Marino for answering the question, what happened to Abraham Rosen, son of Selig and Rose Rosen, my 2x great grandparents. Peter followed up on that question, did some research on his own and came up with the answer for us.
Abram/Abraham Rosen was the youngest son of Selig and Rose. He was born in Sompolno, Russia in 1900 and immigrated with my great grandmother Kate in 1911. Abram was 11 years old and traveling with his deaf sister who was 22. I imagine that had to be quite an intimidating journey for a young boy. They were traveling to their parents in New York.
When I asked the question, what happened to Abraham, my thoughts were that he had passed away from illness. I could find no mention of him. After arriving in 1911, he was not living with his parents in 1915c, in fact none of the children were, nor was he living with them in the 1920c nor was he living with his sisters Kate, Jennie, Rose, or Jacob either.
Peter discovered the marriage record for (familysearch.org )
Abraham Rosen married Kate Brickman on 11 Nov 1924, NYC Parents of groom: Selig Rosen & Rose Bieber Parents of bride: Jehiel Brickman & Rebecca Pallay
Two days of searching and I still have not found anything on Abraham and Kate but something else very exciting did pop up. Take a look at this graph I drew to see what I was seeing. The last name of Pallay jumped out at me. My great grandfather’s mother was a woman named Edith Pallay (Palay). I know nothing more about her. (remember Benjamin and Kate are both deaf) Abraham immigrates with sister Kate, Abraham marries Kate Brickman who’s mother is a Rebecca Pallay.
So the question now is
Is it just me or does anyone else think very possibly Edith and Rebecca are sisters?
I have sent away for Abraham and Kate Brickman’s marriage license. I have a lot of research to do and thankfully with winter break from school and another full week off, I have lots of time to devote to my 2nd great Uncle Abraham Rosen and his family.
