Historical His name appears on a ship’s manifest for the SS China, which sailed from Hong Kong on 9 August and Yokohama on 19 August 19th, 1893, and arrived in San Francisco on 31 August 1893. He was accompanied on the trip by his wife, daughter (Eva) and son (Mayer). It was noted that Eva was a widow at the time. Why wasn’t Samuel with them? Were they taking Eva for her to live there? Who was her husband and where did he die?

According to the manifest, he was a tailor.

Belitza (now Bielica) is located south of Lida in Belarus. A mass execution of 36 Jews from the town took place there on July 23, 1941. A gubernya was a major administrative subdivision of the Russian Empire.
