I'm looking into my paternal grandmother's side of the family and have only the following information to go on.
If anyone has any additional information please contact me at the above e-mail address.
My Grandma: Katherine Rapkin Davidson
Her mother: Anna Rapkin
Her father: Benjamin Rapkin
Sisters: Belle, Pauline, Shirley
I know that both of her parents came from Russia or the Ukraine.
I know that she grew up in Beacon, NY (Duchess County). Her father had a furniture shop. He may have designed all of the furniture sold there.
She married my grandfather Bertram Davidson and had 3 children: Sheldon (my father), Debbie, and Charles.
I hope that someone will be able to offer some information. Thanks. Julie Davidson
