Notes:

 Clara Fram writes that Minnie is reatled to "Menucha in Hebrew"

 

Clara writes of Minnie:

My sister Minnie was a tall, beautiful girl, with long, dark hair she could sit on. She was proud of her looks, even to the point of fusing face powder that came in the form of small,,, conical bits. she took care of us two little girls, Rose and Kayla [Clara]. it was she that took us walking while she followed behind us, sometimes accompanied by a young man. He was the hairdresser and barber whom she asked for advice about my hair that was plain and straight, while Rose had beautiful, long curls.

Rose was a well-covered, rosy child, while I was small and pale. Seeing us together, people would stop and remark, "What a beautiful child!" meaning Rose, whereupon Minnie would say immediately, "Ah, but she is smart!" pointing to me. Rose, even as a child, was so attractive and aggressive that my mother, in her reminiscences, even recalled a young man who happened to be visiting once remarking, "I'd like to put a deposit down on her!"

Clara also writes that Minnie got married just a couple weeks after they came to this country in 1909.
