#FamilyTree365 – Day 43 October 13, 2016
The second of these three brothers that married 2 sisters and their cousin’s cousin is Abraham Levy, also my fourth great uncle. Abraham was married to Henriette Mendel, the sister of my 3rd great grandmother Regina Mendel who was married to Abraham’s brother. Abraham was born about 1816 to Gompel Levy and Esther Markus in Duisburg and, like his brothers was a cattle trader and butcher. Abraham married Henriette in 1860 and they had 8 children – Gustav, Albert, Emma, Elise, Hermann, Moritz, Siegmund, and Max. Albert, Emma and Elise died as children.
Gustav married Anna Steinberg from the town of Hoxter and they had two children – Lore and Erna. I already posted about Erna. Lore married Otto Orzegow from Raitborg and they had one son. That son and his descendants live in Chile.
Hermann married Aurelie Klestadt from Wuppertal and they had no children. However I thought I remembered reading somewhere that Aurelie’s sister Helene married into some noble family. I will have to re-find what I read.
Siegmund married Johanna Josephs from Neustadt-Goedens and it appears they had no children.
Max married Emma Blatt who also happens to be a very distant cousin through my Dutch ancestry. Emma was born in 1879 in the town of Hottenbach. Max and Emma had one daughter, Else, who was born in 1913 in Duisburg. Else married Siegfried Wurzel in 1937 before they came America to live with her aunt’s family. At some point they divorced and she married Henry Leo Lehmann.
