|Birth: ||1855, Lithuania|
|Death: ||Feb. 28, 1951|
He never used his English name with the family. He was just Kalman Michel. He didn't want to come to America. His wife left with her youngest and without him before the first world war. After the war, he came to the USA.
As a young boy, he wanted to be a rabbi like his father, but a terrible prank in his teens by a bunch of bullies caused him to have a stroke, and he was unable to learn after that. He became a dairy farmer. He would do this one thing that his children remembered:
He'd be the one to dish out the food on their plates, and because children always want "more," he would dish it out and say, "Sha," so they should not say a word. He lived longer than any one of his children would.
