Additional Info
Berta Grunfeld was from Stropkov, Slovakia. We believe she was born in 1887 and lied about her age on US documents. With research, we believe she married her cousin, Philip Rosenfeld (his mother is the relative- Chana Schonberger). They lived in NYC, then came to Cleveland, OH around 1918. Berta died 6 days after Sydell was born. Sydell was sent to foster care with her siblings, then Philip left Ohio with the 3 other children, went to NJ, then moved to Oakland, CA
