  • Notes 
    • Rabbi Ash?s son-in-law, Boruch Modechai Garfunkel married Betty Volaski from Charleston. They had nine children of which 7 survived into adulthood. Four of their children married and only three had children. Nathan and Lina Adler a brother and sister from Baltimore (immigrated from Kitzingen) married Charles and Rachel ?Tapp? Garfunkel (also a brother and sister). Thus most of Boruch Mordechai?s descendants are the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Charles and Lina Garfunkel of Savannah and Nathan and Tapp Adler from Baltimore. Almost all of their descendants are still frum and found in communities all over the country.
    • Yes his son-in-law, Boruch Modechai Garfunkel, did remarry Betty Volaski after the death of Rabbi Ash?s daughter. They lived in Savannah, Ga. where they raised their family. There is a book written by Milton Gottesman which was published by the American Jewish Historical Society in New York titled ?Hoopskirts and Huppas ? A Chronicle of the Early Years of the Garfunkel-Trager Family in America 1856-1920? which provides some details of the family history. I do not believe that I am related to the david-davidson family. I am a great-grandchild of Boruch Modechai Garfunkel.
    • Check Lubetkin.net for Hannah Garfunkel born 1860. She was the daughter born to Rabbi Ash?s daughter, Miriam Ash. She married Isaac Raphael and had 6 children. I assume that there are living descendants today. I don?t know anything about Rabbi Ash?s other grandchildren.
