About Esther Chana Rothman (Youngman)

Yahrtzeit: 30th of Av, 5682.

The story in my family goes that her husband caught TB from a friend he was caring for. She then got it and died of TB shortly after the birth of her 3rd child.

After Estelle's death, knowing he was terminally ill, her husband 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.

  Esther-Hannah Volk: Estelle was not a part of her name. I had the papers Goldie had made notes on about Marc's information, and when he applied for Naturalization in the '20s-Goldie came over with Morris, Esther, and Marcus. They went to Tenn from Ellis Island. Esther went to NY with their 4th child, Jacob, who had suffered some form of brain damage; she died in 1922; Jacob died in 1930 - probably in an epidemic of some sort, as his tombstone in among a large number of other children who died around the same time. Her third child was Manny (Emanuel) father of Hesch, Jay, Gene & LIzzie. so she lived a while after his birth-Jacob was born 3 yrs after Manny. Goldie was helping take care of the kids while Esther was in NY with Jacob. 
  Her parents were Markus and Rebecca Jungman. There was a fourth, oldest sister Gen (Eugenia), who went to Israel and had (I think) 6 kids. Goldie was not Eugenia. There is an ancestor within a generation or two who was also "Eugenia", but I don't know which one.
