About Morris Fishman

Judy Pribil Pollak to Laurel Suess: "The story I heard over and over is that your grandfather came here in 1911 with all of his children; his wife stayed behind, I never heard why but must assume she had some kind of illness or disability. She died in 1914 and when he was notified he hired a matchmaker and was matched with your grandmother. I also heard that his children were against the second marriage, except the youngest who we called Sam, his real name was Zalick. And they never got over it. Your grandmother had also been married before but was widowed young and was childless. Your mother and one aunt were then born to her and then your grandfather died. I asked your mom what were the circumstances of his death and all she knew was that he had "stomach problems." "
