About Samuel Margolis

Reported DOB is 1725.

He may have died before Sulka (Unknown or Margolis) Visanska named a son Szmojl Oszer. If so, this might explain why we have the famous Asher Margolis later in the Margolis family, if Samuel Margolis' full given name was Shmuel Asher.

As to the date of the birth of Szmoil Oszer Wizjanski, he married in 1842, so he was likely born in 1823. Page 77, household 4 in Przerosl (Szmoyl, son of Mortchel).
