CHAJA USCIEN

Mother to Rose Uscien

Ostrow Mazowiecka, Poland

1919

This is a passport photo of Chaja, the mother or Sora Ruchla (Rose) Uscien, who married Harry Levine.
 

 


 

Isser Uscien, who worked as a tailor, was one of Chaja's sons and one of Rose's brothers (bottom, left); two of Isser's daughters, names unknown (bottom, right), all lived in Ostrow Mazowiecka, Poland.

 

Rose was the youngest of at least seven children of Chaja (the eldest child of Mortek Szczupakiewicz and Itka Isser) and Kisiel Fajbus Uscien.

Rose married Harry Levine in Poland cir 1912, and at some point he immigrated to the U.S. without his wife and child. In 1921, Rose and daughter Chawa (Eva) followed Harry to the United States. Rose is a first cousin to both Chaim, Motel and Perel Szczupakiewicz, who were the children of Juszk Szczupakiewicz and Itka Gniazdowicz, a sister of my great grandfather Srulka, who was a milarz, or flour miller, who lived in Koskowo, a shtetl outside of Sniadowo in northeast Poland.

Harry and Rose lived on Driggs Avenue in Brooklyn. He worked a cobbler and had a store on Central Avenue in Brooklyn, near the store of his son-in-law Irving Bibicoff, who was a glazier and owned a glass shop.
