Tracing Tillingers: Mystery Branch #6 Osias and Gerschon Tillinger

Updated: Jan 12, 2021

Sorry for the extended delay between posts I was working on some other things that had come up and double checking some facts.


Anyway onto the last of my current mystery branches - Osias and Gershon Tillinger. Based on their naming patterns I believe that they are siblings. Both have a Leib and a Sara born at about the same time.


Assuming I am correct about them being brothers and according to Gerschon's death record, their mother was Chaje. Gerschon was born around 1819 and died in 1899. Osias' death record appears to have been lost or destroyed. Since no descendant was named for him it is a little hard to estimate his death. From what I have been able to tell both Osias and Gerschon had 3 children.


Osias was married to a woman by the name of Lea, however at this time I do not know what her maiden name was assuming she had one. Together they had three children that I know of - Leib, Sura, and Ester. I have not been successful thus far in tracing Leib and Ester. I was able to find that Sura married a Hirsch Leib Struss and they had three children - Mendel, Hoschia, and Golde (who married a Moses Ellis?) Beyond all of this I currently know nothing more of this branch.

 

Gerschon was married to woman by the name of Jute Beile , however at this time I do not know what her maiden name was assuming she had one. I do however know a little more about them than I do Osias. Together they had three children that I know of - Sara Chasia, Leib, and and Moses Uszer.


Sara Chasia was born in Borszczów I would estimate around 1860. She was married to Meier Hellenbrand and together they had nine children that I know of - Ruchel, Itzig Eber, Srul Abraham, Dawid Szaje, Breyna, Anna, Chaja, Pesia, and Bertha. I have thus far only been successful in tracing the descendants of Ruchel, Dawid Szaje, and Bertha.


Leib, according to his death record in 1907, was born in 1840 and was married to Golda Friedman. Together they had seven children that I know of - Gittel Babcia, Itzig, Jona, Pesia, Moses Uscher, Chaje, and Jente. Thus far I have only been successful in tracing Jona's daughter Golda/Olga.


I know very little about Moses Usher himself beside that he was married to Jutta and they had two children I know about - Rifka and Naftule. Rifka married a man named Mordko Blecher and they had eight children - Mendel Hirsch, Leib, Jakob, Meszulem, Moses Uscher, Osias, Hoschla, and Jetti Sosse. Thus far I have only been successful in tracing Jakob's descendants. As for Naftule all I know at this time is that he married an Ester Reise Tauber and they had two children Schmiel Hersch and Chana.

 

That's it for the Tillingers for now. Not sure what's coming up next - but stay tuned!
