Yetta Oppenheim was born Sep 1860 to William Oppenheim and Chaie Ziporah Frank.
She immigrated with husband Benjamin Horowitz and infant son, Josef Horowitz arriving in New York 19 Dec 1881. She knew tragedy early on.
An infant son Josef died in their new homeland as well as another child before the 1895 New York Census listed the family as coming from Poland. Benjamin and Yetta and little baby Josef Horowitz, born Mar 1881, arrived on the SS VANDALHIA 19 Dec 1881. Josef is listed on the shipping list. Josef is not listed with the family on the 1895 state census or the 1900 federal census. On the 1900 census, Yetta Oppenheim Horowitz states that she gave birth to 10 children and 8 of them are still living, so it may be presumed that he died young. We do not know the name of the 10th child as yet.
The Polish borders stretched as far east as Lithuania. The shipping list gives their last home as Spliter. Splitter, Prussia/Tilsit, Kaliningrad, Russia.
She attended Congregation Rodeph Sholom in Manhattan.
