About Morris (Moshe) Isaac Rothman (Hrushovsky/Hruszowski)

The story in my family goes that he caught TB from a friend he was caring for. His wife also got it and then died of TB shortly after the birth of her 3rd child. Knowing he was terminally ill, he sent for his sister in-law to come from Europe to the USA. He married her and then died shortly after. "Aunt Goldie" then raised the kids.

   EHV: Goldie came over from Austria in 1913 with Morris, Esther, and Marcus. Esther then had ruby, manny (emmanuel), and Jacob. She went to NY to seek help with a brain injury to Jacob; goldie stayed in Tenn with the kids and Morris. Esther died in 1922; the others went to NY (marcus was 11); goldie raised the kids--morris was away from them duie to illness (possibly the TB sanitorium?) over the summer of '26, and died in  Oct. the letters home had been hopeful.
     Libby was also a big part of the children's lives with Goldie. papers found when Ruby Kahn died in'75 showed that Morris and goldie were not able to marry (probably due to illness constrains), but he left  papers requesting that she be granted status of "wife" because of the yrs she had spent raising the kids ---in the jewish tradition of the next unmarried sister stepping in for one who died.
     But notes Goldie made when Marcus applied for Naturalization in the '20s stated that she came over on the same ship he and his parents had.
