Alter Grabois "Albert Grabois" "Alter Grabojes"1 (b. 1872 in Faleshti, Russia, d. 1927 (@ 54) hit by careless driver)
[only child present when Saul Grabois died in 1906]
1Alter (age 40) and Rosa Grabojes (age 16) immigrated to the US from Russia through Ellis Island on August 20, 1913 on the SS Uranium from Rotterdam.
2Golde (age 38), Boruch (age 15), Feige (age 10), and Dine (age 1yr, 6mo) immigrated to the US from Russia through Philadelphia on July 6, 1914 on the SS Konigin Luise from Br?, France? Golde had brown hair and blue eyes and a fair complexion.
Notes: Alter's youngest son was said to be a boy genius by the age of two. He died shortly before Diane was born, so she was blamed for his death. Her family never forgave her for it and distanced themselves from her. Her sister, Francis, kept in contact with her, and Francis' son, Seymour, stayed close to her until she died in 2003.
