About Sam Krienik

Andrew Kreinik: The name was spelled KRIENIK on his birth certificate by the nurse.

Sam was deaf (through measles, not at birth). In order to communicate with him Sarah became fluent in sign language (which she taught my father). She also became an expert lip reader. Sam married Bess who was also deaf. She became deaf as a little child and knew how to speak a bit. When she became a mother, her neighbors drilled a hole in the wall between the apartments and she tied a string to her big toe and passed it through the wall. When her babies would cry at night, the neighbors would pull on the string so that she would know to get up and take care of them.

Is this Jerry's uncle who had measles and was deaf? No. Stanley Kreinik, Feb 4, 2013: "The deaf Cousins: His name was Sam Krienik he was a brother to Sarah Kreinik (Jerry Kreinik’s mother). who also had two sisters one named Birdie the other I do not remember her name, but Richard Yospin should know; they would be Great Aunts to him as well as Andrew. Sam Krienik (note he spelled his name ienik) He had three sons, Jerome or Jerry ( Lenore) Stanley( Betty), Calvin (Helen) Richard or Andrew should know their children , if not, I can dig deeper and give you more info.
