About Tillie Diamond

Marleen Barr, Tillie's great-grandaughter writes (9/4/2012)

"I am in a little bit of a shock because I have lived my whole life not knowing that Tillie was even named Jacobowitz.

I remember Tillie vividly. I visited her as a little kid when she lived in the Schaab House and I remember that she baked challah.

(I now live in Manhattan in a building designed by the architect who did the Schaab House.)

I never knew that my grandfather Sam (Tillie's son) had two brothers named David and Mendel who died as infants. Sam's sister Sylvia named her son Mendel; now I see the connection. Again, I must say that I am just in shock to discover all of this stuff."
