    Notes 
    • Per email from Rhonnie, 5/7/02: “According to what my father told me, his father left old country in 1904, my father came to the U.S. in 1911. My mother’s name was Joelson. She was born in Manhatten in 1909. Her parents came to the US before the turn of the century but were married here. I think Balowitz is not the actual family name. My father once mentioned they had a different surname in Poland but he couldn’t remember it.”
