Family History II


When my Grandmother got to Ellis Island,
she knew no-one
She decided to
stay in NY
She was ambitious
She had a great mind
She could not only design clothes;
she could make them too

She got a room
in the “garmet District”

and a job

The factory employed
both sexes
and my grandmother
met a young man
who wanted nothing less
to court her and
being a “gut mensch”
(a good man)
he wanted to marry her
NO- my grandmother
did not come to America
to get married
But Joe was persistant
and he would eventually
“trick” her into marriage
He got her drunck
and pregnant
They were indeed married
…and the child
was born 7 months
later
