#FamilyTree365 – Day 44 October 14, 2016

The last of the three brothers is my 3rd great grandfather Moses Levy.  Moses was born in Duisburg in 1814 to Gompel Levy and Esther Markus.  Like his brothers he was a cattle trader and butcher.  In 1851 he married Regina Mendel, the daughter of Andreas Mendel and Amalie Benedict.  Together they had 8 children – Sophie, Albertine, Julie, Gustav, August, Emma, Salomon, and Max.  Gustav and August died when they were children.

I go more into their family in my section about my German research so this just some highlights.

Sophie married Seligman Lazarus Cohn from Muhlheim an der Ruhr and they had 7 children – Max, Anna, Gustave, Sally, Alfred, Hedwig, and Paul.

Albertine, my 2nd great grandmother, married Barend Polak, a hide tanner from Tilburg, and they had four children – Alfred, Max Henri (Hans), Roza Johanna, and Emma.

Julie married Maurits van Leeuwen from Eindhoven and they had five children – Max, Anna, Ida Amalia, Helene Emmij, and Philip.

Emma married Benjamin Sanders and they had no children.

Salomon was married to Marie Else Bing/Birq and they had no children.

I have no idea at this time what happened to Max
