One Family member believes that Marx had another brother named Jules or Julius, and there is another family member believes the family was sephardic because Marx's 2 children bore the middle names, and were named after, living uncles (Their first names, Nelson and Milton, were selected by their English Borm mother Alice Goodman Raines Levy.

Another important point- Marx Levy and Alice Goodman Raines Levy were both deaf, and spoke ASL- something that was significantly less common in those days (although they both also spoke verbally because they lost their hearing from childhood illnesses.)
