Our Roots

Our Family has been Blessed by the Lives and Values of our Parents, Their Parents, and...All Who Came Before. In this limited space, it is Our Wish to Honor Them, to Remember Them, and to Pass On to Those Who Follow, the Great Heritage They Leave Us....

Our lives are the products of our loving parents and their parents.

The 1900 U.S. Census for the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, showing my maternal Grandfather, Ben (as he was known), my Grandmother, Rueal (sp?), their three sons, Charlie, Ike, & Harry and daughters Lena & Ethel (my mother) The 1910 U.S. Census for the city of Fort Worth, Texas, showing my paternal Grandfather, Elias (sp?), and his three sons as residing on East 5th St. Note that my father's name is given as "Rudolph" (although I believe it should have read "Reuben"), Jack is shown as "Jacob", and Irving as "Isadore". I do not know why my Grandmother's name is missing…perhaps she came over after 1910?
