Events in My Family Tree: January 26

There are no marriages in this list, but three of the deaths are for ancestors, as opposed to collateral relatives.  I really should have a photograph of great-granduncle Willie Brainin somewhere, but I appear to have misplaced it.  I hope it isn't lost forever.

Births

John R. Gaunt, son of Redden N. Gaunt and Pauline E. Smuck, was born January 26, 1859, probably in Indiana.  He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.

Grace Elizabeth Easlick, daughter of Allen Severs Easlick and Mary E. Shemeley, was born January 26, 1906, probably in Burlington County, New Jersey.  She is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Gauntt line.

Joseph Quinton Votaw, son of Millard Votaw and Ida May Fisher, was born January 26, 1910, probably in Indiana.  He is my 4th cousin 2x removed on my Gauntt line.

Eleanor Jernee Thomas was born January 26, 1919 in Medford, Burlington County, New Jersey.  She was married to Samuel Naglee Ellis, son of Levi Ellis and Carrie Florence Gauntt, who is my 1st cousin once removed through the Gauntts.

Russell Oliver Ellis, another son of Levi Ellis and Carrie Florence Gauntt, was born January 26, 1922 in Lumberton, Burlington County, New Jersey.  He, of course, is also my 1st cousin once removed.

Adele Garfinkel, daughter of Eliezer Louis Garfinkel and Doba Ajzner, was born January 26, 1936 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  She is my 2nd cousin 2x removed on my Nowicki line and the sister of my dear cousin Esther (Garfinkel) Weinstein.

Samuel M. Socherman, son of William Szocherman (originally Szocherman) and Anna Tania Jakowszycka, was born January 26, 1942 in Habana (possibly in Guanabacoa), Cuba.  He is my 4th cousin on my Nowicki line.
