Visit to Cleveland

Late September in 2015, Linda and I took a trip to De Kalb, IL, to see her brother and sister-in-law. On the way back we stopped in Cleveland with the Epsteins and had a reunion with some of the Paris and Greenberg second cousins.

Linda has sketched our family tree for her prep., and she was asked to send it. Here it is:

Someone brought photos and I hope that Mike will scan them and identify the people in them.

Lillian, William in the chair, and Hyman.
Susan Paris writes: Mary Danziger Paris with her husband Abe Paris and William Paris seated in the baby chair, Lillian next to Mary Paris and Hyman next to Abe Paris, taken about 1919.  My Dad was born in February 1918.  This photo looks like my Dad may have been 10/11/12 months old..

The photo is annotated on Geni.
The back of the photo has Jacob Scheiner crossed out and replaced by "Sam."
The woman between Mary Danzinger and Lillian Paris on the left is Dorothy Danzinger.

Is this Mary Paris?

After the brunch at Bravo, Susan, Linda and I rode out to Parma to the Workman's Cemetery, where our great-grandfather Maer (Mayer) Danziger is buried.
Susan Paris had already taken a photo of this stone. 

But on the way to finding it again, we noticed these stones, just a few rows away.

Jacob Scheiner
Then we traced the family from the lower-class Jewish area on Kinsman Road up to Wood--- and Beachwood.

This is the front door of the building at 11734 Kinsman, where according to the 1921 and 1923 city directories, Abe Danziger had a candy store. Evidently the family lived in the apartment above the store. It is just around the corner from the house where his sister Anna lived with the Sheiner family.

I was imagining my mother roller-skating along Kinsman Road. She often told the story about delivering supplies from one store location to the other on skates.
11734 Kinsman is just around the corner from Anna Scheiner's house at 3311 E 117th Street.

The other store, at 6314 Central Ave in 1921, was not to be found.

Here is a map with important Danziger locations. The bogus Abe Danziger is at 2552 E 63rd St.

The next morning we had breakfast with the Danzinger boys, Jeffrey (Duffy) and Howard.
