About Bernath Jacobowitz

We don't have documentation of his death.

The index to his citizenship papers says he was born Aug. 26, 1868. Do you think that should be Aug. 26, 1848? Where did the 1848 year come from?

On September 18, 1896, Bernard Jacubowitz (48) arrived in New York with his wife Esti (45), and six of their eight children - Jonas (25), Hanni (17), Arnold (15), Sal... (14), and Max (9). They were also traveling with their daughter Minna (22) and her husband Isidor Eichler (38). They were listed as being from Hungary. (per the Ellis Island database). For some reason, their daughter Helen was not listed. This was probably a mistake. According to stories Minnie told her daughter Maidie, they traveled in steerage and were all very sick on the trip over. - From Elyse Eisenberg. Maidie (Selma Grosswirth), my step-grandmother, was Minnie Jacobowitz' daughter. She remembers tales of her grandfather who died when she was 2. Maidie died in 2013 at almost 101.
