Events in My Family Tree: February 3

I don't have many events for February 3, but one of them illustrates how extended the family is in my family tree program.  One of my Schneiderman cousins had a small treasure trove of telegrams sent for wedding wishes but didn't know how the people who sent them were related to him.  So I did some research, figured out the connections, and then entered everyone into my database so I could more easily share the information with him.  It's a somewhat convoluted path to describe how the first person listed under Deaths is connected to me.


Nellie Elizabeth Sellers, daughter of Cornelius Elmer Sellers and Laura May Armstrong, was born February 3, 1912 in Mount Holly, Burlington County, New Jersey.  She is my grandaunt.

Herbert Kanovsky was born February 3, 1931 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  He was married to Evelyn Golub, daughter of Harry Golub (originally Golubchik) and Dora Sorin, who is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Meckler line through the Golubchiks.

Hans Joachim Rocke was born February 3, 1939 in Wuppertal, Rhine Province, West Germany.  He was married to Yedida Marcia Amine, daughter of Moshe Amine and Florence Meckler, who is my 1st cousin once removed via the Mecklers.

Coulette Moore was born February 3, 1963 in Mount Holly, Burlington County, New Jersey.  She is my 2nd cousin once removed through my Fox line.

Amy Ann Bennett was born February 3, 1975.  She is my 7th cousin once removed through my Sellers line.


Sarah Maurion died February 3, 1964 at the age of about 80 in St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri.  She was the second wife of Frank Owstrach, whose first wife was Eva Petranovsky.  Eva's sister was Annie Rachel Petranovsky, who was married to Sam Schneiderman, son of Joine Schneiderman and Anna Ida.  Sam is my great-great-granduncle, brother of my great-great-grandmother Esther Leah Schneiderman Gorodetsky.

William Kester Allen, son of Cyrus Kunze Allen, Jr. and Clara Barton Shinn, died February 1968 at the age of 60.  He is my 4th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line through the Allens.

Abbie Walton Sellers, daughter of Elmer Ferguson Sellers and Minnie B. Frey, died February 3, 1984 at the age of 87.  She is my 5th cousin 2x removed.

Dorthea Virginia Lynch died February 3, 1994 at the age of 74 in Wabash, Wabash County, Indiana.  She was married to Charles Robert Clark, son of Oren Wilson Clark and Anna Gaunt, who is my 4th cousin 2x removed via the Gaunts.
