About Fannie Rubenstein

[Update Dec 2011 - Feige Rieb departed for the U.S. from Hamburg on June 10, 1885 on the Ship Moravia, with two young daughters - Cirel or Arel, age 1 month (probably Sarah) and Schaie, age 11 months, supposedly female, although Charly was the oldest (Schaie = Isaiah or Yeshayahu). Feige was 20 years old, born circa 1865. I found the ship manifest both the Hamburg and the New York. Origin of the family members was given as Belorodki, Russland, which matches what Max Reib Rubenstein wrote on his passport application and on his re-entry to the U.S. in 1912 after a trip to Europe. Belogorodka is a town in Ukraine, either very close to Kiev or near Kremenets (there are two Belogorodkas) - 11 miles SW of Izyaslav (Zaslav), 41 miles E of Kremenets (Krzemieniec), 46 miles SSE of Rivne (Rovno).]

[Update Dec 2011 - At the time of his death, Max and Fanny were divorced according to Greeneville, Greene, Tennessee death records which can be found online]

Proabably born in the Shavli province of the Kaunas district of Lithuania. Leckava is the shtetl that appears to have contributed the majority of the Muscatine immigrants. It is likely that the Rubenstein, Reib, Weintraub, and Freyer/Fryer families were from either Leckava or nearby Vieksniai. The towns that the early settlers of Muscatine came from were at least these five (I have included some variant spellings of surnames).

  • Kykoliai - Greenblatt, Povalonki, Glattstein, Cohen, Rubenstein
  • Vieksiniai - Reeb, Ryb, Ribas, Rib, Rubenstein
  • Zagare - Rieben, Reiben, Bleeden (Blieden)
  • Leckava - Light/Licht, Becker, Lifflander, Levin, Hurwich, Urdangen, Glick, Rubenstein
  • Skuodas - Urdangen, Hurwitz

See Max Reib Rubenstein's "About Me" for more background.
