About David Tevel Frankel

There's some confusion about him. He appears to be listed twice in the household of his father Abram in the Ratcynia 1874-1875 Family List, Trakai District Revision List.

David is listed as living in Merkine in 1869 when his son, Betzalel, was born. Wife at the time was Feyge.

In the 1874-75 Revision List, in the household of Abram Frankel, there is

  • David, age 34. "Lives in Merkine." Wife Rokha Feiga, age 30. Children: Khanka, age 8, Sorka, age 4 and Itsko, age 12.
  • Tevel age 31, "Lives in Vasilkov." Wife Rivka, age 26. Chldren: Tsalko, age 5; Itsko age 3.

I suspected and have concluded that these are the same person. First of all, the birth record for Tsalko (Betsalel) from 1869 says his mother is Feyge. Second David Tevel is a common double name among Ashkenazi Jews. Third, Revision Lists are the result of a Census + later revisions so it makes sense that the first recorder noted David living in Merkine, but when the revision was done, he had moved to Vasilkov.

I don't know if the discrepancy in the names of the wives means that Rokha Feiga died in between or if there is just an error in the recording of his wife's name. I also don't know about the two recordings of a son Itsko. Did the first one die or are the ages in error?
