All unknown - except that one is presumed to be Pasja Ella!

1. ??? Paikin

Unfortunately neither his name, nor the name of four of his children, are known. We know his wife's, Pasja Ella's, name because Jascha named his daughter after her!

Judging from the birth of Jacob (Jascha), who we know was the middle child, he must have been born sometime between 1850 and 1860 and presumably somewhere in Russia.

He and Pasja Ella had 5-7 children. He is said to have lived in the outskirts of Odessa, where the family had a clothing factory making uniforms.

Children of ??? Paikin and Pasja Ella ? all born Odessa, Russia, were as follows:

  • i. A son born between 1885 and 1895.
  • ii. A son born between 1885 and 1895.
  • 2. v. Jacob, born 6 May 1889.
  • iii. A daughter born between 1885 and 1895.
