About Chaya Rivka Horowitz [Gurvich]

Samuel Horowitz's 1928 obituary in Baltimore Sun mentioned that he was survived by one sibling--a sister (unnamed) living in "Russia."

This must have been Chaya Rivka, indicated on three Lithuanian Family Lists from Joniskelas, Kovno Gubernia (province) as the only daughter of Itsyk and Rocha Gurvich. Her ages on them are consistent and give a birth year of around 1862.

On the 1876 list, she was 14. On the 1883 list, she was 21. In both years, she was included in the household of her father Itsyk.

On the 1887 list, she was 25 and included in the household of her older brother Leyb. But Leyb was also recorded as "missing", and the second-oldest brother Govsey/Shevel had died a few years earlier, so it looks like Shmuel (=Samuel Horowitz) was the only one of her brothers around at that time.
