About Rose Frankel Friedel

Rose's birthplace of Lutsk was taken from the 1920 Declaration of Intention and 1922 Petition for Naturalization of her second husband Nathan Youngelson. Lutsk was then part of the Russian Empire. Yiddish was her native tongue.

Her year of birth isn't clear but she died in 1945 and her age was inscribed as 66 on her tombstone, so around 1879. But Nathan's 1922 Petition indicated her date of birth as October 27, 1882.

The 1910 and 1920 Censuses gave her immigration year as 1893.

Rose Frankel and Philip Friedel were married in 1895 in Baltimore, according to the family tree done by Philip Jacobson, their grandson. The censuses indicate that she was naturalized that year, presumably along with Philip. They had 5 children: Lillian (Friedel) Jacobson, Samuel Nathaniel Friedel, Irvin Friedel, Sadie (Friedel) Rice, and Gertrude (Friedel) Justman. Samuel went on to become a city councilman and then a congressman, representing Maryland's 7th District from 1953 to 1971.

Philip died tragically in 1912. Rose married her second husband, actor Nathan Youngelson, on March 6, 1919 in Baltimore. The marriage record,d obtained from Annapolis and posted here, identified the groom as "single" and age 32--although he had apparently been married before, had a son, and was closer to age 26. His residence was Winnipeg, Canada. Rose was a widow age 38, residence Baltimore (she was probably closer to 40).

They appear together as Nathan and Rose Youngelson on the January, 1920 Census, living in Baltimore with the four youngest of Rose's five children. Rose's age is given as 40, Nathan's as 29. (again, he was probably 26). The oldest child living with them is Samuel, age 21, in other words just a few years younger than his stepfather.

Nathan Youngelson's naturalization petition was denied in 1923, apparently because he had falsely claimed exemption from the draft. A separate notation also indicated that a divorce decree had been granted in Dec, 1922 in favor of Rose on the grounds of adultery. Later, I was able to obtain the actual divorce decree, but it's dated Feb 1927, and the accompanying documents indicated that they had been married continuously from March 1919, although separated since Sept 1922.

Rose apparently dropped the Youngelson name and she appears as Rose Friedel on the 1930 Census and later.
