The Sarah and Morris Wertel Room
THE WERTEL FAMILY
possibly the Bronx, NY
seated, Sarah and Morris
standing, their children Stanley and Dolores
Sarah Wertel, nee Sure Kalender, had a last known residence of Ostrow
Her father was Baruch Leib Kalender and her mother was Fruma Etka Gniazdowicz,
sister to my
paternal grandfather, Srul Gniazdowicz. It is possible that Baruch and Fruma
Etka spent part of
their lives in Brok, Poland, where they may have raised other children. Her
parents never emigrated
from Poland. She immigrated via Ellis Island on 30 Jun 1921 aboard the S.S.
Mount Clinton, having
departed from Hamburg. Her contact in the United States upon her arrival was
Harry Leibiker, who at the time was living on the Lower East Side at 138 Monroe
Sarah married Morris Wertel on 26 Feb 1923 at 207 Clinton Street, and lived for
a time on
Montgomery Street in Lower Manhattan. They were known in later years to reside
in the Bronx.
|Sarah is shown here, seated at the far right,
next to my maternal grandparents Flora and Harry Ness. The four people
standing have not been identified.
