Information Question
Category: Photo Identification
Family Surname: Peschaleah (or Peshaleah)
  Looking to identify the individuals in this photograph.

Copy of photo with Lana Horwitz, passed down from her dad's side of the family (Herman Horwitz). We believe the woman on the far right is Paschaleah (or spelled Pashaleah) also known as "Bessy." Bessy married we believe Chaim Adelstein and possibly her maiden name was Itzak. Bessy is Ida Horwitz's mother (maiden name Ida Adelstein).

Since Ida was born in 1876 Lithuania, we believe this photo may include Ida and/or her relatives as well. The family moved around believed to Russia and then immigrated to the US in the early 1900s. Therefore, believed this photo was taken sometime in the late 1800s possibly early 1900s. Not sure if Lithuania, Russia, or United States.

Ida married Max Horwitz (also known as Mottel Hurwitz). Max was born in Poland. They both immigrated to the United States around 1902.
