Golda Tsrylshteyn, daughter of David and Kelia shows up on the 1858 Revision List for Merkine with a note "married in 1856".

I have seen the wife of Rabbi Issac mentioned as "Hinde Zirelstein". I'm not sure if there is an error in the family tree or if the family went by both names, since in our Geni tree both names are found for different siblings, children of Mordechai Bernstein and Kaila Margolis Bernstein.

Rosenstein - "HInde married her first cousin, Rabbi Issac Margolis, in 1862, and had five children. Rabbi Issac is described in the Jewish Encyclopaedia (vol. VIII, p[age 330) as a "Russo-Polish rabbi and author". After several rabbinical posts in Europe, he emigrated to the USA in 1884 and became the Rabbi of Congregation Anshei Kalwariya in New York.

Besides contributing articles to various periodicals, he was the author of Ma'oz ha-Talmud (Warsaw, 1868) and Ma'oz ha-Yam (Vilna, 1870). His Sippurei Yeshurun (Berlin, 1876) is written in elegant Hebrew style.

Two of their daugthers, Anna and Lena married successively the son (Abram) of their first cousin, Ethel Ginsberg.

A third daughter, Bertha, married Samuel Barnett. Their daughter Vivian married Sandow Holman, brother of Nat Holman, the U.S. basketball player and coach.
