Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Nineteenth-century ancestor:

Comments

R Lapides

Thanks for posting this. It gave me some satisfaction, as the picture of you I've formed over the last several years -- based entirely on your writing -- resembles this ancestor more than the painting of your grandmother at the top of the blog.

But I notice she died when she was 33. How many children did she have?

Miriam

She had five, of whom four survived.

Rokeya

What does her first name mean--do you know? It's the same word as a Bengali (actually Sanskrit) word that means shade or shelter.

Dorothy Burstein

Chaia and its masculine form, Chaim, mean "Life." They are amulet names often used after the death of an earlier child.
