I joined Geneology.com today in order to reply to your posting. My mother's father was named Henry Halper. He was an antique dealer in Boston and lived in Chestnut Hill (Newton), MA until he died in about 1943. I think he was about 55 when he died. His second wife, Sadie (sorry, I don't know her maiden name) was my mother's mother. She died in about 1959. My mother, Eleanor Harriet Halper, was born in 1943 . She had an older step sister named Myrna, I think, from her father's 1st marriage but she died over 20 years ago.
My mother was 8 when her father died and 16 when her mother died and was orphaned at that point. She doesn't know a lot about her family history but she does remember that her father ahd a brother whom he was in business with.
If you think we're talking about the same Henry halper, I'd be curious to know more about him!
