Ancestors – I am most interested in learning about the families of Abraham Moxik and Malka Kirschenbaum. From my understanding, they would have been from Warsaw or near Warsaw. According to family knowledge, they would have been fairly successful members of the Jewish community there at the time, potentially working in law or as book keepers. I have seen a few different spellings of the last name Moxik, including Maksik, Mazyck, Maciag/k, or Meozyc.
Abraham Moxik (b. 1874 – d. 1915). Married to Mollie/ Malka Moxik (7 Dec 1876 – 14 Dec Dec 1941) in 1896 in Poland. Arrived at Ellis Island in 1900. Wife arrived with young child at Ellis Island in October 1903, Port: Southhampton, Ship: Philadelphia. Abraham had two brothers – Samuel and Max – who also immigrated to the US. Abraham Moxik’s parents names were Benjamin Moxik and Celia (Sussel) Krammer. Celia tried to immigrate to the US in July/ August 1906 with a child named Gussie, but was hospitalized then deported (Port: Southampton, Ship: Philadelphia).
Mollie/ Malka Moxik’s maiden name was Kirschenbaum, and her parents are noted as Nathan Kirschenbaum and Gertrude Solomon.
