More about Yehudah Palefsky's family:

Yehudah Palefsky is reputed to be a brother of the Rebbe of Kobrin, Rabbi Moshe Polier. The names and dates of Yehudah Palefsky's descendants were taken from a tree drawn up by Samuel Chwat. Some of the dates are estimates and the number and order of children may not be accurate. Most of the material was prepared in the 1960s and was submitted to Chaim Freedman just before his book went to print, so the details were not verified by Chaim Freedman prior to publication. Corrections and additions welcome.
