Hi Gregory: I contacted several members of the Epstein Family that I have recently corresponded with regarding Michael Epstein.And they said that they doubt that Fannie Epstein is directly related to our Michael Epstein. Michael and his wife came to America in the 1840-1844 time period. We know that the family is from Mainz-Mombach in the Hesse-Darmstadt area of Germany. We know his parents names but nothing more about the family.
If Fannie was born in 1852, she would be the next generation. Also, her birth area of Bohemia is fairly distant from Hesse.
So, I don't think we can offer you anymore information.If youneed additional information, please send me an e-mail.
