  1. 6.  ISAACSON Erwin was born 5 Nov 1910, Chicago, Illinois (son of ISAACSON Zelik Zev Wolff and LIPKIN Lena Deena); died 29 Dec 1983, Phoenix, Arizona; was buried , Westlawn, Chicago, Illinois.

    Notes:

    Erwin was born in Michael Reese hospital at the time his parents were
    living at Newberry
    & Maxwell Sts. When Erwin was a child his family moved to 1102 S. Wood
    St. near Yeaton which is now Grenshaw Ave. upstairs of Cohen's Grocery.
    His family had a three bedroom apartment which was always active as by
    now Erwin had a younger brother Albert, who later was a grocery
    salesman, and five older sisters. While living there he watched the
    County Hospital and the Ladies Aide Society Buildings being constructed.
    His father, Zelick was a peddler in the US and at times would be gone
    for a month or 2 going as far as the MIssissippi River. Some of the
    people would pay him with geese, other fowl and eggs. The fowl scared
    the daylights out of Erwin. His mother and sisters used to pluck the
    geese and saved the feathers for making pillows.
    Erwin recalled that when he was 4 he fell asleep under a gas range
    that had a shelf. Everyone called it a Polly stove but it was actually a
    Parlor stove. At that time the family took coal from outside, from a
    shed and brought it upstairs to heat the apartment in a stove that had
    Isenglass. When he was 6 his favorite game was Peg and Stick. He cut
    off a stick from a broom about 8" long and sharpened both ends. He also
    had a stick 3' long which he used to hit the shorter stick to see how
    far it would go. He also had a favorite top.
    The family took in boarders when Erwin was 5 or 6 years old and they
    had their own private entrances. Once a year the family made their
    years supply of wine.
    When Erwin was 8 (1918), his mother died from the flu epidemic which
    spread through Chicago. (Her sister in law Rose also died at this time).
    His father, Zelik, was a religious man, and Erwin went with him to
    Mincha and Maariv services. Not being to anxious to attend, many times
    he told his father services hadn't started and in the end his father
    gave him the dickens. He chased him to go to Hebrew School and at 13 he
    was Bar Mitzvah.
    When the family moved from Wood St.

    Notes:

    Some stories have it that Leah Deena was born and lived in Riga, Latvia
    (although I have yet to find a source for Isaac Lipkin moving to Riga.)
    It was not uncommon at that time for young children to be boarded out.
    Leah Deena went to the Isaacson house as a nurse girl to little Rose
    Isaacson, who was not a well child. There she met Zelik Isaacson, her
    future husband. There story is recorded on the marraige notes. She
    came to America to be with Zelik. Rose accompanied her to America as a
    condition of her being allowed to marry Zelik. Leah Dina had cousins
    living in Boston at the time and when they heaard she was in Chicago
    they came to see her. One of the cousins was Sam Rubinowitz and he fell
    in love with Rose and they got married. Leah Dina died when Erwin was 8
    years old, from the flu epidemic which spread through Chicago.
    Ironically her sister-in-law Rose, also died from the flu at this time.
