Rabbi Hyman/Chaim Schneider left Lithuania with 5 of the 6 children in 1891, leaving his wife Ida and the youngest Fanny, behind in Paneveyzs to join him 3 years later in 1894.
Fan gave false dates of birth by about 10 years as she didn't want to show she was older than Barney, Gravestone and Bible record all show the incorrect/false dates.
Fann was the single most important person in Norman's life. Her parents kept a grocery store in Long Island, NY, . Yehuda was ordained as a rabbi at age 16, in the US he studied all day and kept a Torah in the house, unusual in Jewish American Family.
She met Barney Mailer at age 23, who had been staying with his sister and brother in law Anne and Dave Kessler. She married Barney in 1922 in a large ceremony in Manhattan and lived with her parents in Long Branch. Norman was born in 1923, named Nachem Melech (King) though it was decided that Kingsley be his middle name instead of King.
Chaim Yehuda, a great follower of Spinoza, died in 1926, followed not long after by his wife Ida.
