FC: Our Family History | "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." | Our Family "The Ehrenberg's
1: Our Story starts with Favush & Hannah Ehrenberg very little is known of them except they had a son named Woolf and it there that our story begins....Woolf was born probably in Russian Poland around 1851, he married Sarah Hannah Zwick the daughter of Zive (Herman) Zwick about 1872 probably in Poland they had 4 known children, Mordecai, Rosie, Harris & Leah
2: Top photo-Favush & Hannah Ehrenberg or Aaronberg. The photo was taken in Strasburg, Westpreussen. The Photo of their son Woolf (bottom) with his wife Sarah was taken in Whitechapel, London, England.
3: Like branches on a tree, our lives may grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.
4: David Manners a grandson of Sarah Hannah Ehrenberg nee Zwick claims that Favush and Hannah migrated to England and that after the death of Favush, Hannah joined relatives in New York, where she died at the age of 94, I have never been able to prove this and have done extensive research in both England & New York, I might add that there are many Ehrenberg's in both New York & England
5: Woolf Ehrenberg was probably born in Dobrynski, Warsaw, Russia about 1851 he & his family first appear in London, England in time for the 1891 Census which was taken on Sunday 5th April, he had probably arrived much sooner than that as he was approved for British citizenship July 1891. In the 1891 census he and his family are living at 66 Booth Street Buildings in Whitechapel, London. he is listed as a tailors baster age 40, with wife Hannah age 33, children; Rosa (Rosie) age 14, Harris age 11, Leah age 9, the children's birthplaces were listed as Germany, In 1901 they are still living at Booth Street, but Woolf gives his age as 56! & Leah is the only child still living at home.

7: Places | By 1905 Woolf & Sarah are living at 19 Fourneir Street, Whitechapel, London. All 3 of the photos were taken on a prior visit to London, the house is still there today it is located just off of Brick Lane and within walking distance of Petticoat Lane
8: On the 5th August 1905 Woolf died of bladder cancer, he died following surgery he had been diagnosed 2 years prior as having cancer. He was 54 years of age. By this time 3 of his four children were married, his first born son Mordecai had died in infancy somewhere in Europe. Woolf was buried at Plashet Cemetery, London 6th Aug 1905. He was buried as a "stranger" which simply means he did not belong to the Synagogues burial Society.
9: At the top of the gravestone is an engraving of a water pitcher with water flowing in to a basin which indicates that this person "assisted the High Priest in Temple functionaries" On the gravestone his father is listed a Fayvish and Woolf's name is listed in both the English and the Hebrew. Hebrew-Zev or more correctly Ze'ev which means Woolf (In the Yiddish this becomes "Velvel" which in the German or English becomes William)
10: Rosie & Nathan were married 8 April 1901 in the Jewish Synagogue, Mile End Old Town, London
11: The marriage of Rosie Ehrenberg to Nathan Mayover | This photo was given to me by David Manners who was a son of Harris. I wish I could identify everyone in this photo but sadly I cannot. What I do know is that Rosie's parents are seated beside her and the grooms parents are beside him, Nathan's parents were Coleman Mayover & Rebecca Greenblatt. In the very back row, left is Leah Ehrenberg (large hat) next to her is a brother of Nathan's, Sidney Mayover and beside him is Alexander Levene
12: Rosie & Nathan had 4 children- Lily born 4 Sept 1900 Hyman also known as Coleman born 24 Dec 1904 Woolf also known as Will born abt Oct 1906 Dora (twin to Will) Lily married Barnett (Barney) Capaloff March 1924. Hyman died 16 Feb 1926. Will married Victoria Sternblatt 27 Jan 1925. Dora married Abraham Marzell 8 March 1931.. Nathan died 26 Aug 1907 | Lily | Barney & Lily | A young Nathan Mayover
13: Hyman, Will & Dora | On the 11th Aug 1908 Rosie remarried Hyman Maizels they had one child Rachel (Ray) she married Morris Goldstein alias Grant. Life was difficult for Rosie she was left alone with 4 small children the year before Nathan's death her mother left for the states and I have been told her marriage to Hyman was not a happy one | Hyman (Coleman at his Bar Mitzvah
14: Harris married first to Annie Maccoby a daughter of Elican Maccoby & granddaughter of the Rabbi Simon Maccoby
15: A letter written to Harris by his mother Sarah after Harris emigrated to the states
16: Harri's story is really quite long and very controversial. As mentioned he was first married to Annie Maccoby together they had 3 children, Simon, Mordecai (Mott) & Sophia all 3 were born in England, around 1905 Harris came to the States and settled first in Butler, PA, He also lived for awhile in New York, if you read the letter on the prior page you will see that his wife died in 1906 this I might note is David Manners translation of the letter, David was Harris's youngest son by his 2nd marriage. Note it states that his wife, Annie has passed away, this is not true, Annie lived several more years making Harris a bigamist! Annie suffered from depression and was "Put Away" for lack of a better expression. When Harris left England he left the children with his Mother in London until he was settled in the states. Sometime after coming to the states Harris changed his name to Rosenberg, reason unknown, later his children changed the name to Manners.
19: Harris married Bertha Schildhaus 27 Feb 1906 in New York, she was the daughter of Isaac & Sprinza. Thanks to David I have quite a lot of information on Bertha's family, she was an only daughter.Harris & Bertha had 3 sons, William, Abraham and David. After Harris & Bertha were settled , Sarah bought Harri's children from his first marriage to the states, it was never her intention to stay, but according to Sophi's daughters she was not happy with the way her grandchildren were treated by Bertha, she stayed it is interesting to note that following her death all of the children from Harris's first marriage left home.
