Solly, Chaim and Chana Vengerin
These are the children
of David Beines Vengerin (son of Hersch) and Rochel Sher. According to family
information the children were Yael; Saul, born 1888; Max (Moishe), born
1892; Alec (Elyash), born 1894; Hymie (Chaim), born 1898 (1896 according
to the records); Solly, born 1900; Annie (Chana), born 1902.
The siblings who emigrated to the U.S. and South Africa changed their
surnames to Wingrin, Wingerin, Wingreen, and Green.
According to the 1908
Rokiskis Family List the children of David Beines Vingaren and
Rochel Sher are Evel Girsha, age 30;
Abram Motel, age 24; Shevel Mendel, age 20; Iokhiel, age 18; Leah Dobra,
age 28; and Nekhama Ginda, age 27. We have not yet been able to
reconcile these differences or figure out why the younger children are
not listed. Are there two couples with the exact same names,
David Beines Vengerin and Rochel Sher?
