    Notes 
    • NOTE: INFORMATION LISTED FOR THIS INDIVIDUAL IS CONTRADICTORY AND SOME OR ALL OF THIS DATA MAY BE INCORRECT. ALL THAT IS KNOWN FOR SURE IS THAT THERE WAS A HARRY FISHMAN WHO WAS A SIBLING TO ISRAEL, MOLLIE, EVA, AND MORRIS. ONE FAMILY MEMBER STATED THAT HARRY AND HIS WIFE HAD ONE CHILD. THERE ARE AT LEAST FIVE DIFFERENT HARRY FISHMANS WHO COULD BE THE CORRECT INDIVIDUAL. HOWEVER, REMAINING FAMILY MEMBERS CAN NOT RECALL THE NAME OF HARRY’S SPOUSE, WHICH COMPLICATES MATTERS IMMENSELY.-Gerald Lowell, 10 December 2013

      THE FOLLOWING RECORD FOR A HARRY FISHMAN LIVING WITH ISSY (ISRAEL) FISHMAN MAY BE CORRECT. THIS HARRY IS IDENTIFIED AS A BOARDER, WOULD HAVE BEEN BORN IN ABT. 1882 AND CAME TO THE U.S. IN 1908:
      Living with brother Israel at the time of the 1910 Census.
      1910 Census: New York: New York: Manhattan
      Fishman, Issy, head, 24, first marriage, married 4 years, born in Russia, father and mother born in Russia, came to the U.S. in 1906, citizenship status not clear, operator, ladies shirts;
      Rosy, wife, 25, first marriage, married 4 years, has had two children, both living, born in Russia, father and mother born in Russia, came to the U.S. in 1907, citizenship status not clear;

      Harry, boarder, 28, single, born in Russia, father and mother born in Russia, came to the U.S. in 1908, alien, presser, ladies shirts;

      THE FOLLOWING RECORD, IF CORRECT, IMPLIES A BIRTH YEAR OF 1889 AND ARRIVAL IN THE U.S. IN 1914:
