Here’s Ephraim and Helena (with baby Ruth in arms) and their children: Zelda, Frieda, Julia, Naomi (far right, my grandmother), Leo and George. I estimate this to be in 1892, West Liberty, West Virginia. I’ve written the taking of this consciously proud and humorous family portrait into the book. If I’ve misidentified the children, please let me know!
This page, and others building from it, is for other photos of Ephraim, his family and people in his life. And, perhaps, for a growing list of Ephraim Epstein descendants — I’ve already met a few online during the writing of his life story. I start with a page on his sibling, Pauline.
