The census records from 1910 and 1930 for Yehoshua Kaufman (Reb Shea'le) and his family. In 1910 he is listed as Shiah and his wife as Mary. L. He was a dry goods peddler. At that point they were married 23 years and both were 42 years old. Sadie was 21, David 19, Izzie 15, Bella 13, Vita (Yetta) 8, and Anne (Chie) 4. Anne was the only one born in the US. It's interesting that Shea came in 1892 and the others in 1903 or '05. There's some discrepancy between the 1910 and 1930 census. It's hard to know what's accurate. In 1930 they're both listed as 68 rather than 62 years old.

Of interest on Dovid Kaufman's death certificate his name is listed as Charles
