Looking for descendants of Jacob L Faber of 88 Rivington Street, New York and later moved to 199 Orchard St.

According to the census in 1910...Jacob, a street peddler, lived there with his wife and 4 children, only one of whom was born in NY. , Jacob was 39; his wife, Lizzie, was 33. Sons, Isidore 14, Abraham 12, and William ? ( hard to read ) 10. All of them from Romania. A 7 year old daughter, Jennie, born 11/28/02 in NY.

Looking at the Ellis Island records I found him Listed as Jonas Faber, age 30 in 1900, a merchant from Jossy, Romania, I learned that he arrived without his family. Of interest, his name on the actual manifest appears to be Joncu. The census records indicated that Lizzie and the children came in 1901.
