Notes:

David Saftel was from Vienna in Austria-Hungary. They were very poor. He spoke Yiddish and German.  He had a horse team and was in business hauling and moving freight.  Brought him back and forth to Russia.  He was allowed to pass thru borders.  He did business in Jewish settlements hauling fruit.  He met Eva after he saw her looking out the window of her home in a small town outside of Vilna.  they eventually married and he brought her back to Vienna. They thought the US was the country of opportunities and that life would be much easier in the US. They had to sneak out of Austria - paid a guide to help.  They had two children Bess and Harry when they left for the US in the mid 1892. He left from Germany and landed in the port of Boston and came in via Castle Garden.  He had a sister already living in New York who helped. She followed later with their small daughter and infant son.  She traveled with a group of Jews to northern Germany where they got on a ship for the US.  They first lived in the West End of Boston and then moved to the South End where their daughter Ann was born.  Eva had tuberculosis but was cured. His wife Eva wanted to live on a farm with open land and trees.  They then moved to Dorchester.  He started as a tailor and then became a contracts in 1910 at a men's coat company.  No unions - seasonal work during the winter.  He learned to speak some English but could only write his name in English.  They became disillusioned after they got to the US.  They struggled with language and cultural barriers, but made the best under the circumstances.  He became a foreman for Barron Anderson, a men's coat maker.
