  • 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.
