Ethel Stool was born into the Burack clan back in Kolno, Russia, cir 1898, but the exact family connection remains unclear. More is known about her husband Jack Stool (Stuhl), son of Abram and Malke Stuhl.

Jonkel Stuhl emigrated from Russia via Antwerp, Belgium aboard the S.S. Finland in June of 1913. He was seventeen at the time and was listed as being a sailor. His last residence before emigrating was Luchane (?)

He was born in Sedletz (Siedlce?), Russia in the summer of 1896.

He and wife Ethel lived on the Lower East Side in the early 1920s. The only family remembrance is that Jack was a good-looking man, and had a successful seltzer route. His naturalization records indicate that he was an operator in 1920, and a mineral watch dealer in 1924. He became a U.S. citizen in 1924.

Ethel and Jack had two boys named Arthur and Theodore, but they cannot be located.

Nothing is known of the burial records of any of the family. More research will be done on the family in the future.
