Gussie (Gitl bat Ephraim) Klieger emigrated from Galicia, in the Austro-Hungarian empire, abt. 1900, possibly from the Lwow (Lemberg) area. (A 1902 passenger list from Le Havre to New York, containing a Gietel Klieger from Galicia, has been found; Gussie was a common English equivalent for the Hebrew "Gitl.")
Gussie Goldberg (standing on right in photo) was the wife of Louis Goldberg, a Russian Jewish immigrant tailor (also buried at Mt. Hebron). They married 2 Feb 1907, and after a start on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, they were able to move to Knightscroft Road in the Bronx. They had two children, Harry and Mildred. Like many New Yorkers of her era, she spent winters in a Miami residential hotel, and it was in Miami that she died at the age of 99. Her sister, Nettie (Nasya) Klieger Wald, is pictured on Gussie's left. Their parents' names were Charles (Chaim Ephraim) Klieger and Henrietta (Hindl) Richter.
Her and her husband's graves are part of the Rohatyner Young Men's Society section of Mt. Hebron Cemetery.
