Anecdote (fam)1918In 1918 Solomon and Zelda Jacobs purchased a farm in Rockville, Connecticut in partnership with Max and Martha Lieberman. Max Jacobs, who hated it, and his younger sister Sonya also lived on this farm while Frances Jacobs remained in New York. They raised vegetables and apples, stored for the winter in a root cellar for home use and a small tobacco cash crop which was sold to cigar makers in NYC. They had a cow and a plow horse named Tom which Grandpa used to deliver milk (and home made butter) to customers in the town. Sonya Scherer once told about the time when Grandpa had to spend a half hour talking Tom into removing a hoof from his foot on one of their milk delivery runs (Tom must have weighed about 1000 lbs).

The enterprise was abandoned after a year as a result of disagreement among the partners.

DaughterAnita Cooper + (1917-2016)
DaughterTerry Cooper + (1921-2014)
SonDaniel Isaac Cooper + (1926-2006)




Biography

Birth6 January 1888Elizabeth Pomeranz was born on 6 January 1888 in Pinsk, Belarus. There are three signed documents in which Aunt Elizabeth enters her birth age:
1. Her naturalization petition (23 October 1911): 6 January 1888.
2. Her emergency passport application (10 April 1916 : 19 January 1888
3. Her application for a social security card (26 January 1942): 19 January 1894
The handwritten signatures are the same on all three documents; what is the poor genealogist to do?1
Immigration23 July 1904She arrived at Ellis Island in New York aboard the S.S. Island from Copenhagen on 23 July 1904. She traveled with Jankel and Chaie Neiditsch and used the name Grune Neiditsch2,1,3
Name-ImmigrantShe changed her name to Grune Neidetsch after immigration. This was the name on her immigration manifiest.
Residence16 April 1910She came to board with the Kupermans at 10 East 114 Street sometime before 16 April 1910.4
Anecdote1913Elizabeth had originally immigrated because she disliked her Pinsk stepmother; when she got to the United States she boarded, apparently very uncomfortably, with a family named Neiditch. She worked in the same button factory as Ida Cooper Guterman. She told Ida about her situation. Ida persuaded her parents, Ephraim and Rochel, to take Elizabeth in. Their son, my Uncle Israel, fell in love with Elizabeth although she was dating another man at the time. Israel moved to Chicago to escape the situation. But he and Elizabeth corresponded -- apparently warmly -- and decided to marry.5
Marriage31 May 1913They were married on 31 May 1913 in Chicago, Illinois.2
Anecdotefrom 1914 to 1916After her marriage Elizabeth felt that she should visit Pinsk to see her family before she and Israel had children of their own. She went over but was trapped in Pinsk by the outbreak of World War I in August, 1914. The family had to arrange protection for her through the State Department and for money to be sent to her for subsistence during the war. Passage was finally arranged and she arrived back in the United States on May 4, 1916 aboard the S.S. Noordam.5,6
Residence (fam)28 September 1914In 1914 Israel and Elizabeth lived at 1248 North Hoyne Avenue in Chicago.7
Psgr List4 May 1916Her name was found on a passenger list on 4 May 1916 in New York City. She had been trapped in Europe in World War I and was finally able to get home aboard the S.S. Noordam which sailed from Rotterdam on April 16, 1916.8
Also Known Asafter 1916As of after 1916, Elizabeth Pomeranz was also known as Elizabeth Cooper.2
Residence (fam)12 September 1918On 12 September 1918 Elizabeth and Israel were living at 766 Grote Street in the Bronx, New York. The 1920 census found them still living there. The Coopers were still on Grote Street in 19209,10
Residence (fam)1 June 1925Israel Cooper and she lived at 766 Grote Street in Bronx on 1 June 1925.11
Residence (fam)from 1935 to 1941In Israel Cooper and Elizabeth Pomeranz were living at 2004 Vyse Avenue in the Bronx.12,13
Death18 May 1968She died on 18 May 1968 in Bronx, New York, at age 80.2,14
Burialcirca 19 May 1968She was buried circa 19 May 1968 at Cedar Park Cemetery in Emerson, Bergen County, New Jersey. Block 9-10, Section H, Row 8, 1st grave2

Lozer Kantor

Born in 1891 in Pinsk, to middle class parents who gave him a traditional education. His father, Yosef Kanter, had “forest” businesses. As a youth, Lazer Kanter belonged to the “small S.S.” a later took an active role in the party’s work in Pinsk. In 1908 L. Kanter "wandered" to America. Seeing the profession of a watchmaker, in the U.S. he took up a similar profession and till this very day is occupied in the jewelry business.

In America Lozer Kanter also dedicated himself to "Societal" activities, became a member in the "socialist-territorialist" organization and since 1910 has belonged to the socialist party. He was one of the energetic activists in the “Pinsker Volunteers.” Later with great devotion he worked for Pinsker Relief and was the dynamic pushing force for all the undertakings at the time of campaigns to help the unfortunate in the old country.

He always displayed ideas and initiative in the area of finding various sources of income. With his energy and commitment he also influenced those around him who worked with him.

He belonged to the "capable" membership in Pinsker branch 210 Workmen Circle and for the span of many years was the treasurer of the branch. Now he is a member of the Executive. He is also active in the School Movement of the Workmen Circle, was one of the founders, and also the first secretary for the Workmen Circle’s Schools number 2 and 4 in The Bronx.

Lozer Kanter also does much work for the campaign for the workers in the Land of Israel, which is managed through the Workmen Circle branches. He belongs among most active "doers" in the committee for “Thousand Years Pinsk.”12
