Family ID is: 114F

Note: Had 4 daughters and 1 son. The daughters were extremely bright (3 of them later became doctors), but the son Baruch (Bernard) was of average intelligence. When the Focsaners left for America, they wanted to take the son with them. The family declined the offer. Baruch was about 12 at the time. Two years later, at the age of 14, he received poor grades at school and couldn't face his family. He hanged himself. This had a profound effect on the 4 sisters. Sixty years later, they spoke of their tragedy as if it happened yesterday. This may be the reason that 3 of the sisters never married and lived in the same house their father Isaac built so many years ago. They kept the same furniture and maintained everything in the house the way it was from years ago. [S7-1]

Note: Discovered another son Joseph, so now 4 daughters and 2 sons. [S7-8]
