About Clara (Chayka) Olin
named after her great grandmother and Claire Baker was named in her memory.
Nathen Gabriel, 11/14/17 1:18 AM Report Chaykeh arrived in Halifax on January 25, 1929 aboard the SS Nieuw Amsterdam. The immigration document lists her age as 17. She died only 4 years later at the age of 21. My Dad (Israel Olin) who was 10 years old at the time remembers her visiting my paternal grandfather Jacob Olin (Chaykeh's first cousin, one generation removed) and needing to lie down on their couch because of her poor health.
