About Leyb Horowitz [Gurvich]

A Lithuanian Family List from Joniskelis, in Kovno Gubernia, from 1876 shows the extended family of Itsyk Gurvich, head of the the household. LEYB GURVICH is listed as age 40, the eldest son of Itsyk and Rocha. It also indicates that his age was recorded as 22 in a previous Revision done in 1858. There's no sign of Leyb's wfe, but his son YANKEL SHMUEL, age 12, is listed.

Leyb appears again in the 1883 List, age 47, still included in the household of his father (who it's indicated had died the year before. . .) Again, no sign of his wife, but his son Yankel Shmuyel is there again, age 19.

In the 1887 List, Leyb, age 51 is listed as the head of the extended household, with Yankel Shmuel, 23. However, this time, there's a notation that both of them are "Missing"--I think this means they're missing for military service/conscription purposes.
