1/1/2012 3:55 PM These are Jack, Leo and David Rube, of Yonkers, New York. They were the sons of Morris and Ida or Adele Rube. Morris was a first cousin to Oscar and Jacob Kanarek, and related somehow to Lillian, Rube, Oscar's first wife and my grandmother. I am trying to find out more about Lillian and the Rubes. Lillian died in the flu epidemic of 1918, when my mother was 8 months old. View the post, there are no responses
