Khariton family
Max SABBATH nee KHARITON and his parents Leib and Ruth KHARITON, 1884 in Dashev. Photo courtesy of Bonnie Blish, JGen researcher #129405..

This picture, taken in 1884 in Dashev, was a treasured remembrance after Max and his wife and children emigrated in 1906. The name of Max's sister in this picture is not known. She is probably the mother of Nikolai below.
Leib was recorded in the 1906 Kiev Duma Records as Leib Nakhmanovich Khariton, as a property owner with property valued at 150 rubles. LIke Leib, there were two other men with the surname Khariton and the patrynomic Nakhmanovich in that Duma list. They may have been Leib's brothers.
