Need help with a MYSTERY
Posted by: Julia Lombardo (ID *****7137) Date: December 19, 2013 at 08:21:05

I am hoping someone can help me solve a mystery. I appreciate any help, and thank you in advance!

So...Morris Fine, son of Joseph and Mary, was born in Philadelphia on Feb. 26, 1906. This is according to his death record from Florida in 1983, and according to the Public Records from Philadelphia. I have not been able to find him in the 1906 Birth Index, however, on PA vital records site.

Morris Fine appears in Census records for PA until 1930, and then I can't find anything on him until his death in 1983.

I don't know who Morris Fine married, but I do know he had a son named LEON, born in 1927. It's strange, because if Leon was born in 1927, he would be in the 1930 Census with Morris and his sister's family, but he's not. This leads me to believe that Morris married someone with a child...but who and when?

I have no Military records for Morris either. I know that Leon Fine, Morris' son married Phyllis Berenbaum in PA. I have been unsuccessful in trying to reach Leon's children or his wife. Leon died in Coatesville, PA in 2005.

I would really appreciate any help on this.
Morris' father was a Paperhanger, and Morris was an Interior Decorator, I believe.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!
