Re: Romanian Jews Immigrated to Pittsburgh PA: SEGAL and GROSSMAN

Sam L. Segal's Ohio death certificate shows he was born Nov 14, 1885 in Kiev, Russia and died June 10, 1946 in Columbus, OH. His father was Max Segal and mother was Rebecca Bloom:

Adolph Segals' WWI draft card shows he was born April 7, 1877. His Ohio death certificate shows he was born April 1877 in Briola, Roumania and died Nov 19, 1933 in Younstown, OH. His parents were Moses, also born Briola, and Easter (Esther?), also born Briola. His was buried in the Cornerburg Jewish Cemetery. It's in the same database as above.

I could not find Sophie or Fannie's death certificates.

The 1910 census shows Adolph and Sophie were married 7 years. Fannie Grossma immigrated in 1907.

The 1920 census shows the Sagal Family of Youngstown immigrating in 1901. The 1930 census shows they immigrated in 1900 and were married about 31 years.

When the Slavonia landed in New York on Aug 26, 1907 it included a Fanny Groszman 50 and her son Dezso 10.The problem is that they are listed as from Tornoallia (sp), Hungary and were Magyar.

The 1911 listing for Sophie Grossman has her mother's name of Ernestine. It undoubtedly is the wrong Sophie anyway.

When the Pennsylvania landed in New York on Dec 16, 1907 it included Yette Grossman 17 from Harlan, Roumania, Hebrew, passage paid for by her mother Feige Grossman and she was headed to Brooklyn, NY. Also listed with Yette and having all the same accompanying data was Sophie Segal 25 and her son Sam 3. Also stamped on the sheet for Sophie and Sam was "non-immigrant alien". Which means they were already residents of the U.S. My guess is that Sophie went back to Romania to get her sister.
