Bejla Freida Wajn is the mother, UNKNOWN sister,
David Kon, Mendel Kon is the father. David came to the US in 1920.
They lived in MLAWA. There is a Freida Bejla Kon from Mlawa. That has to be the lady in the picture who died in Lodz "hospital" in 1942. The sister's name, marital status or death are not know.The father Mendal's death date is not known. There is nothing in Yad Vashem site about the 3 remaining in MLAWA. David came to the US and never married. The oldest in the family, Moische, came to the US in 1913. He died young in 1935 in Minneapolis. There are a number of cousins who came to the US. Kaila (KATE) Kon Rosen who lived in Boston and died in 1909. Cousin Lejb Kon- later Louis Cohen in New York. Lejb Louis) and his wife SUTA (Sarah) Perelburg had a number of children in Makow Mazowiecki. Louis Cohen died after 1940 in NY NY This Mendel Kon and Bejla Freida Wajn MAY have been born there but records are very limited. I am hoping some one has seen this pictue.
