Berisch (Bernard) and Sara PICKHOLTZ
Posted by: Steve Pickholtz (ID *****0623) Date: December 29, 2012 at 17:49:31

Berisch (Bernard) and Sara PICKHOLTZ and family; Bluma BERNSTEIN and family and the KACZER (KATCHER) family all related, arrived in NYC in 1890 and somehow ended up inSouth Jersey.

Sara PICKHOLTZ accordingto her tombstone which I have seen, died on Jan. 1, 1892, and is burried in the Alliance Cemetery, Pittsgrove,Salem County, NJ.

I've tried to get a death cert from the State Archives office, Salem County clerks office, Pittsgrove Township office the the Alliance Cemetery which states they no longer have records going back that far.

Sometime after Sara's death, Bernard married Bluma BERNSTEIN. Bluma by the way was Sara's sister. Again the above offices have no records of this event. According to the 1900 US Census, they are married and living in Philadelphia. Phila. also has no records.

The KACZER (KATCHER) great grandchildren have no info going back that far even thought their families farmed in South Jersey until the 1950's.

I am trying to find out-- (1) where all of these families lived in South Jersey; (2) where and the cause of Sara's death; (3)where and when Bernard PICKHOLTZ married Bluma BERNSTEIN.

Lastly Bluma BERNSTEIN when she came to the USA had two sons. One was my grandfather Harry who took on the Pickholtz, the other was David (11 months) when he came in
1890). That is the last reference to him. As above, all of the goverment agencies in NJ have failed to locate any records.

If anyone out there can help with solving any of the above mysteries, that would be great.

Thank you.
