About Rose, Rachel Neer, Near

Matzeva says Rachel daughter of Menachem. If she's Rachel, how could her mother be Rachel?

1900 census should not appear because report immigrated 1904. must have married Moses Near in Russia.

She arrived with Ben and one daughter Jenny aboard Cymric from Liverpool to Boston in December 1904, going to Moritz Neer in Cleveland. Says she's 40 but that meant shaved 10 years off her age.

Morris's kids were naturalized in 1901 with their father. (that is retroactive so they didn't need to be present. (no, I don't think the  kids were in the US yet.)

can't find record of naturalization. 1920 census says naturalized 1912.

daughter's wedding record says her maiden name Cermousky "Ohio Marriages, 1800-1958," database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 19 April 2016), Leo. Kouvisser in entry for Benney Kouvisser and Minnie Neer, 18 Apr 1905; citing Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, reference 2:3JKF9CK; FHL microfilm 886,216.

1910 census. can't find her anywhere in US, under Near or Neer (even searching without any first name and N*er). could she be institutionalized??? Not living with daughter Sophie (who is with husband and 3 girls). Not living with daughter Minnie. NOT living with son Ben who is in reform school. not living with Frank/Clara. (not living with Jenny who may not be her daughter).

1920 census living with daughter Sophie and ne'er do well son Ben in Cleveland. immigrated 1905. Appears to show from ODESSA "United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 17 April 2016), Rose Neer in household of Sophia Kanvessar, Cleveland Ward 17, Cuyahoga, Ohio, United States; citing sheet 8A, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,821,369.

death record shows 1852 as DOB. says father was Joseph Rupinsky

death record Ohio Deaths, 1908-1953," database with images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 18 April 2016), Morris Neer in entry for Rose Neer, 15 Mar 1924; citing Cleveland, Cuyahoga, Ohio, reference fn 14034; FHL microfilm 1,992,492.
