ISRAEL DAVID ROSENBLOOM
Barysaw, Belarus
late 1920s
 

Israel David (Srul) ben Yaakov and Shayna Libe Rosenbloom and his wife Etta Bryna (surname unknown, but may have been Lichtman or Lichterman) had four daughters in the 1880s, followed by a son in 1894.  Then she died in 1896. Srul remarried, and the second wife was a widow with a daughter and son from her first husband.  Together they had a son and a daughter. The son was killed at the end of WWI or shortly thereafter in son kind of local disturbance. The daughter became a physician and lived in Moscow, but all contact was lost with her after 1930. 

After WWI, Srul and his wife and her married daughter went to (or were sent to) Penza, where he lived until his death, sometime in the 1930s. He lived to see at least two great granddaughters, from his eldest daughter. The other four of his children from his first marriage went to the United States before WWI, though two of them died soon afterwards. Several of them were Socialist revolutionaries. One was sent to Siberia for two years after the first revolution, and another was arrested three times by the local police, who were relieved to find she had gone of to America, when they came for her a fourth time.
