BASZA DULSKY LOSMAN

BIRTH: BASZA DULSKY was born in Golynka Poland about 1827. Her parents were Judah Dunsky and Merka, whose surname is still unknown. Basza was one of about eight or nine children of Judah and Merka Dunsky. She was possibly one of the earliest born.

MARRIAGE: On January 24, 1849 Basza married Mendel Lozman who was from the area around Augustow, Poland. He was the son of Srol Lozman and Chana whose surname is unknown. They were both age 22 at the time of their marriage, according to the old records of Augustow and Suwalki.

CHILDREN:The old records of Augustow and Suwalki show only two children for Basza and Mendel. But family records reveal there were others not listed here. We know there were at least two more sons whose names are missing. They were probably born in the 1850's. The following are the children discovered so far:

EZRA LOZMAN was born Dec. 13, 1864 along with twin sister Chana Pesza Lozman. Ezro/Ezra was shown again in the records as Ezra Lezman. This time his death was listed as having been in 1885. He would have been about 21 years old at that time.

CHANA PESZA LOZMAN was born Dec. 13, 1864 along with a twin, Ezra Lozman. Chana was probably named after her father's mother. It is not known if she lived and married. There is a record of "Chaja Pisza" (not Chana Pisza) born 1859 to Chaim Lozman and his wife, Sarh Rivka. "Chaja" Lozman married Zelman Rozenberg. They had son, Israel Girsz Rosenberg. Chaim Lozman was probably an older brother of Mendel whose daughter had the very similar name.

LEAH RACHEL LOZMAN was born in 1872 somewhere in Suwalki. Her mother's family was from Golynka. Both her parents, Mendel and Basza died while she was still single and living with two of her brothers. She was just c. 13-14 when her brother Ezra died in 1885. About 1894-5 Leah married Abraham Isaac Berger from the town of Lipsk. He was the son of Haskell/Kasper and Sarah Berger. From her birth date, we see that Basze was in her forties when Leah was born and Leah was probably her last child. Leah gave birth about 1896 to her daughter, Minnie, who may have been named after Leah's grandmother, Merka Lozman. In 1898 Bessie was born and her name may be after Leah's mother, Basza. In January 1899 Abraham left Poland for Chicago where his parents and siblings were living. Leah and the girls joined him later that year. They remained there for the rest of their lives. They had son, Ezra Berger July 9, 1900, most likely named after his mother's brother. A son, Harry was born in 1902 and Julius was born in 1904. He was probably named after Leah's grandfather, Judah Dunsky. Their last child was Faye, born 1907. Leah had an aunt, Fege Dulsky and she may have been named for her. Harry's name may come from an uncle of Leah's, Harry Dulsky. Leah died of diabetes and its complications in March 1917. Abe remarried for a short time. He died of pneumonia in 1927.

LOCATIONS: Basza was probably born in Golynka. After her marriage she and Mendel likely lived at or near Augustow, Gorczyca or the village of Suwalki as the Lozmans seem to have been from this area.

DEATH: Both Basza and Mendel were dead by the time Leah married which was about 1894. We don't have the details of the dates for either one.

FURTHER NOTES:Basza's daughter, Leah, had a nephew named Louis who came from Poland to live with her family in Chicago about 1913-1915. He was probably a son of one of the two brothers with whom she was living before her marriage. Louis was thought to have become an attorney and left Chicago. He has been lost to the family.
