Summary and

The Rozdol Families

Back to Main Pikholz Page

Riwe (1773-1843) and Getzel
Leib (1780-1844) and Beila (1781-1841)


Sara and Nachman

(Itzig) Josef and Rojse 
Another possible child of this couple is Ryfka of the RISS family.
That would clinch the idea that Riwke Feige (below) is a dughter of Motie, not Josef.
Motie and Taube 
Possibility that Motie is a son of (Itzig) Josef, rather than a brother. 
In that case, there is a good possibility that Riwke-Feige and Selig (at least) are his children.

Getzel & Beile Berlin

& Lane Feldmann & Sure Elke Pikholz
Sara & Alstadter ~1847-1889 Ester Feige & Samson Segall Moses Hersz & Frymcie Gruberg
Sure Elke (who married Getzel's brother Josef after his first wife died), Nachman who went to NY and Rosa. Children Nachman and Rosa who had families, Wolf and Sara who died in childhood - and Moses whom we are still looking for. Children Avraham Luser, Herz Getzel, Meszulem, Chaim, Markus and Zirla whom we are looking for.  Also one who died at birth. Not at all clear that this woman belongs here.  Her parents are listed as Mojzesz Leib and Cirl. Children Natan, Israel, Salomon, Josef, Cirl & Moses. Joseph and Leon who lived to adulthood, Chana Jente and Taube who did not.

Nachman Dawid
This son was born in 1891, which seems very very late for Arie Leib to have a child.  But his address is the same as Josef & Sure Elke, so that fits.

Berl 1837-1918 & Bluma Bernstein Perl
Went to Phila. with children Olga, Hersch, Annie, Fannie. (It's more complicated than that, but that will do for now.) We don't have the record itself, so we have no evidence other than the father's name for this attribution.

Aron 1858-59 Jychel 1861- Dwora 1860- Nachman Szulim 1866- Dawid Ber 1868- Leisor 1874- Ester Riwke 1878-
We don't know if these six grew to adulthood.

Nachman & Beile Swiwe
Breine (1888), David (1892), Marcus Wolf (1898)

Moses & Chancie Muhlrad Josef (perhaps his wife was Pikholz) ArieLeib
& Rishi Epstein
Taube Freude 1852-1880 Simon SON (don't know name)
These two are probably the same person.
Ten children, three died in childhood.  Most of  the rest, aside from some of Tobias' family, killed in Shoah.
Speculation based on children's names.
Had sons Nuta, Moshe Hersch, Nachman, Jacob and daughter Enge.  Had daughters Sarah, Sofie, Chaya and son Shaul.  Also daughter Gicie who dien in childhood. Daughters' families in USA. Taube may not be part of this family and if she is, she may be a wife, not a Pikholz. Guess based on Kozowka death of Eisig ben Simon in 1876. Salamon, married first cousin, Sofie bat Arie Leib.
