My great grandfather David was born around 1848 and died at the age of 83 in Chicago in 1931.
According to my father's first cousin, he may have had another wife (but I don't know if this was before or after Minke). Minke came to the US in 1907 with her youngest children, my grandfather Moische (Melvin) and his sister Ueche (Edna eldest son, Abe, came over first and settled in the Spokane area. His name in America became TAITCH. The next son, Morris, settled in the Akron, OH areaand his name became DAITCH in the U.S. Samuel, Herman, Rose and Ed became DEUTSCHes and settled in Chicago. Herman, Samuel and my grandfather, Melvin, became dentists and all had practices in the Chicagoarea. I also know that David raised his children in a very strict, Orthodox environment.
Here is a picture of David and Minnie Deutsch (Daitch? Taitch), who emigrated to Chicago from Dunilovichi. David's place of birth was listed as Buda on the ship's manifest. On his death certificate
(filled in by his son), his father's name is listed as Jacob Deutsch.
The same son filled out Minnie's death certificate. Her birthplace is
listed as Kurinitz and her father's name as Isadore Norman.My best for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. May 2004 bring
peace and harmony to all!Regards,Marla Deutsch
