Ida Paley – Death Record Found

In my last posting, I had shared my working assumption that Ida Paley had passed away some time between 1920 and 1925, Bronx, New York. Ida, also known as Yetta and Edith, was my 2x great grandmother. She was married to a David Lipschitz. They had 7 children, Samuel, Fanny, Molly, Solomon/Simon, Rachel, Isaac and my great grandfather, Benjamin.

Having gone back into the records looking for Ida, I discovered her living with her daughter Fanny and husband Israel Lifschitz (spelled Lipschidt on the census) at 1330 Franklin Ave., Bronx. Ida was listed as mother, 77, wd.. Listed as mother and not mother in law, I was still convinced this was Fanny’s mother and not Israel’s.

Continuing to work on learning when she passed away, I have had another breakthrough discovery and confirmation that I was right she was Fanny and not Israel’s mother.

Found under the last name spelling of Lifshitz, Ida (Ida Paley) was her death record.

The option was given to purchase the certificate, which I have done and will post it once it is received.

Fanny was still living with her daughter Fanny and family at the 1330 Franklin address when she passed away. Executor was her son Simon, and an added bonus was the names of her parents. Also a birth date was given on this record.

Ida passed away on 23 June 1921 and is buried at Washington Cemetery.

Still on my ‘to find’ list is for Samuel. He is the only sibling that I have no information on other than his name. With only his name, it has been impossible to identifying any match.

An adoptee who found both her maternal and paternal side 18 years ago, I began digging into my new found families past. The journey has been amazing connecting and reconnecting lost and found generations.

  1. What good estimating on your part for her death date! I’m so happy for your finding this record and adding even more information. Congratulations!

    1. Thank you Susan – this was a long time coming for Ida. I had to wait for a few other pieces of her puzzle to fall into place to locate this ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I was on the road yesterday and couldn’t respond on my phone for some reason. But I wanted to cry out, “STOP! Don’t pay for that record.” You can now order records like that from the FHL—for free.

    But more importantly—great find! And nice to know your instincts were right.

    1. I am not sure if I read your post prior to ordering or after you had order that last record from FHL. I must check that out now. If I need any direction I will email you ๐Ÿ™‚ – I was happy locating this record!

I would love to hear from you
