Each link is a gateway to the individual family pages.
Every page has a family history and a family tree. Most also include a photo
gallery of some of the best available family pictures. I am always interested in

This is the only known picture of Solomon. It is taken
from the St. Louis Globe Democrat, where it appeared
with his obituary. He was hit by a streetcar in 1913. I
have a copy of the court case, where the family sued
the streetcar company, and lost!

Papa brought from the Ukraine. He worked as a
tinsmith before buying and selling real estate. His
Dermon Building is on the National Register of Historic
Places for its unusual detail work.
Unfortunately, I have no old pictures of the
Kahns. Joseph immigrated to Evansville and ran
the livery, before the family moved south
to Memphis. I found he and his wife's tombstones
by accident at Temple Israel Cemetery.
Zaddok was one of the first of my ancestors to arrive in
the United States, coming over in the 1840's. He was a
grocer in Memphis, moved to Arkansas, and disappears
during the Civil War. Did he fight, or did he run off
with someone else?
After leaving Cincinnati, Samuel moved to Memphis.
He was staying in a boarding house owned by the Kahns,
and ended up marrying the youngest daugheter, Rhona.
I remember playing with him behind his cigar stand
at the Claridge Hotel.
