The Paikins

Four Baruch Paikins


The first Baruch Paikin from Ukraine


Generation One

1. Baruch Paikin

This Baruch was presumably born 1855 and 1870, judging from the birth of one of his children. He is said to have lived in Bachmac, Ukraine

Children of Baruch Paikin include two daughters, whose names we do not know and a son:

Generation Two

2. ? (A daughter) Paikin

  • Gus Belovsky. We know that he lived in USA, but he met his wife in Copenhagen, Denmark.
  • Benjamin Belovsky also lived in USA

3. ? (A daughter) Paikin

(Baruch)

We know that she married a ? Karlin (Carlin?). Whether they or only their two known sons emigrated, we do not know, but their children lived in USA.

  • Aaron Karlin (Carlin?) lived in USA.
  • Ida Karlin (Carlin?) also lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., USA.

4. Nathan (Yisroel Noach) Paikin

He emigrated via Istanbul, Turkey, to the USA. In Turkey he had a candy factory together with a cousin (?) Chevach Plotnitsky, who is said to be one of the founders of the Haganah.

Nathan's family is said to have had a textile-company in Bachmac making uniforms.

  • Abraham

The Second Baruch Paikin's children lived in Polotsk


Generation One

1. Baruch Paikin

This Baruch is presumed to have been born between 1795 and 1805.

Children of Baruch Paikin include:

Generation Two

2. Simon Boruchovitch Paikin

(Baruch)

Simon was born 1824, and died after 1875, because we know that in 1875 he and his two sons lived in Polotsk, Vitebsk gubernia, Belarus.

Children of Simon Boruchovitch Paikin include:

  • Baruch, presumably born between 1865 and 1875, died after 1875.
  • Zorach born 1869, died after 1875.


The Third Baruch Paikin from Polotsk


Generation One

Baruch Morduchov Paikin

Baruch Morduchov Paikin was son - as the middle name tells us - of a Morduch (Mordechai) Paikinand he must be presumed to have been born before 1860, because he is known to have begun his military service in 1874, as his name was on among the jews of Polotsk included in the draft list in 1874. The list was published in the newspaper "Vitebskiye Gubernskiye Vedomosti.". We therefore also know that he lived in Polotsk in 1874, and that he died after 1874.

Unfortunately, this is all we know about him!


The Fourth Baruch Paikin from Vitebsk


Then there is the fourth Baruch Paikin:

This Baruch was born ca. 1890 in Vitebsk, Belarus. He was tailor, and was called the "Parisian Tailor" because his father sent him to Paris, France, where a jew taught boys "haute couture.".
