Mollie Palewsky was born to Yaakov & Yetta around 1895 in Russia. She immigrated to New York around 1910 and married Joseph Siegel around 1915. They had 3 children: Morris, Louis and Beatrice.

Mordka (Max) Palewsky was born to Yaakov & Yetta around 1899-1900 in Russia. He departed Danzig, Germany on the S.S. Susquehanna in late January 1921 and arrived in Boston on February 7, 1921. His destination was his brother-in-law Joseph Siegel at 321 Hopkinson Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Max married Sarah Chazen on February 12, 1927 and they had two sons. Max died in November 1982 and is buried at Montefiore Cemetery in New York.
