Still in pursuit of the two Markell men who married Lebowitz sisters, I've been tracing the Lebowitz family. Why? Because I want to determine how Julius Markell is related to Barnhart (Banna, Barney) Markell, not just as in-laws but also as possible cousins.
But when Fannie Lebowitz died, her late daughter Rose wasn't mentioned in the obituary, nor was her late husband:
Mrs. Fannie Lebowitz, aged 78 years, died on May 2, 1933 at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph Sobel of Rankin, Pa. The deceased
was a member of the Daughters of Israel, Jewish Home for Babies,
Consumptive Home of Denver and Los Angeles, and others. She leaves
two sons, Samuel of Rankin and Morris of Pittsburgh; two daughters, Mrs.
Joseph Sobel and Mrs. Ella Markell of Rankin; ten grandchildren and
Note that Mrs. Ella Markell WAS listed. She was the first wife of Julius Markell, who later married Tillie [maiden name unknown] and had a son, William, in 1923.
