SZTERN b. Tchernavicz <~1880, lived Wysokie Lit.; immigrated to NY 1910
- GGF Pinchas SZTERN b. ~1880 Tchernavicz, Poland (now Chernovtsky,
Ukraine). Tailor. Immigrated to NY 1910 with a friend named Abe. In
NY, became Philip STERN; d. 1955; buried in Beth David on LI.
His wife/my GGM Rachel/Rachela WINOGRAD b. Wysokie-Litovsk (now
Vysokoye, BEL); married Pinchas SZTERN and they remained in
Wysokie-Litovsk, where my GM Fejgel/Feygel SZTERN was born. Rachel and
my GM arrived in NY from Wysokie-Lit. in 1921 and GM went by the name
Fannie STERN soon afterward. Rachel had one brother, a teacher and
hunchback named Israel WINOGRAD (m. Malka), who did not immigrate from
Wysokie-Litovsk AFAIK. We last had news of Israel and Malka ca. 1938.
Pinchas had two brothers, Samuel and Nuchim. In NY the latter became
Sam STEIN (m. Lena SITRIN; three children) and Nathan STEIN (m. ?;
daughter ?; son Jerome).
Pinchas, Samuel, and Nuchim's parents were Chasha/Rose/Jessie and
"Shraga Feivel"/Abraham SZTERN or STERN. My GGGF Shraga Feivel SZTERN
or STERN came to the U.S. late in life and lived with Pinchas' brother
Sam and Sam's wife Lena for a while. He died in NY sometime after 1910.
Don't think his wife came over. Shraga Feivel/Abraham SZTERN/STERN was
a junkman (in the old country, I'm guessing) and had at least one
brother. We think the brother's wife's name was Rose. Shraga
Feivel/Abraham and his brother were probably born ca. 1850-1864.
If you know more about my GGGparents, Shraga Feivel and Chasha/Jessie or
other of their relatives, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks!
