If I am correct (and I believe I am), then my mother is your second cousin. Most of the family lives in the Philadelphia/Central New Jersey area. Abraham and his wife Bessie (Basha) came over in the early 1900's (him 1904, her 1905). Most of the children, including your grandfather, were born in Philadelphia.

Abraham was a tinsmith, at least one point. Before that he was a wagon driver and after that he was a junk dealer.

The tip-off was what you said about your grandmother Hannah not getting along with the rest of the family. I had heard about that.
