    Notes 
    • The vital statistics of Rezekne for 1865 to 1892 have the following entry: 9 Sep 1891 was concluded the marriage between the widower Zalman-Ber son of Genech-Hirsh Gurevitch (26) and girl from Dunabourg/Daugavpils, Rochel Lea, daughter of Leiba Itsik Shust (22 years old). I wonder if any of his children were with the first wife? DH
    • There is a Horwitz family in the 1920 Federal Census of Chicago on Edgamark (sp) Street Showing the father as Barnett Horwitz a sheet metal worker, born in Russia, age 55 (1865) with a wife Rose born in Russia age 49 (1871) and their children: Sam born in Russia age 23 (1897), Sophy born in Russia age 20 (1900), Emma born in Russia age 18, and Louis born in Russia age 17 (1903).
