About Govsey (Shevel) Horowitz [Gurvich]

GOVSEY GURVICH, age 38, appears on the 1876 Lithuanian Family List in Joniskelis, Kovno Gubernia as the son of Itsyk Gurvich. His age is 38, giving a birth of around 1838. He's also identified as the husband of Chana Rivka and the father of two daughters Sheyna and Eta Dina.

SHEVEL GURVICH, age 47, appears on the 1883 Family List. Although this would give a birth year of 1836 and it's a different first name, it must be the same man. He is identified as the son of Itsik, the husband of Khana Rivka, and the father of Sheyna and Eta Divna--and everyone else's ages match up to the previous Family List.

There's no sign of him on the 1887 List, and Chana Rivka is described as a widow, so it looks like Govsey/Shevel died sometime between 1883 and 1887.
