About Merka Frankel
Living in Ratnycia (belongs to Merkine Jewish Community in 1858 Revision List). Born in 1850. Likely born in Ratnycia. Her mother, Leah, died in 1855. She had a step-mother Enta bat Mowshe.
Merka was apparently named for Merka (Miriam) Rosinski, wife of Leib Rosinski who was born in 1793 and died in 1852. I believe that this was her mother's aunt, not her mother's mother.
