Events in My Family Tree: April 9

While putting this day's list together, I realized that I was born on the same day that Mirka Ajzner, the mother of my dear cousin Esther Weinstein, passed away.


George Wendel Votaw, son of Millard F. Votaw and Ida May Fisher, was born April 9, 1907 in Indiana, probably in Wabash County.  He is my 4th cousin 2x removed on my Gauntt line through the Votaws.

Cecilia Keselman was born April 9, 1945 in Colón, Panamá.  She was married to Samuel Socherman, son of William Socherman (originally Velvel Szocherman) and Anna Tania Jakowszycka, who is my 4th cousin on my Nowicki line through the Szochermans.

Richard Wright, son of Alvin Wright and Dorothy Simcox, was born April 9, 1954.  He is the 2nd cousin of my 1st cousin Albert Lore.

Janice Marie Sellers (me!) was born April 9, 1962 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, at Los Angeles County Hospital, now known as USC County Medical Center.

Patricia Marie Gauntt was born April 9, 1980 in Bexar County, Texas.  She is my 2nd cousin.

Jacob Berkowitz was born April 9, 1985 in Connecticut.  He is my 3rd cousin on my Gordon line.

Yonatan Arieh Monat was born April 9, 1996 in Wellesley, Norfolk County, Massachusetts.  He is my 3rd cousin on my Brainin line.
