Ancestors of Herschel Pascal, aka Zvi Eli Pascal

I am trying to find the ancestors of my paternal grandparents. My grandfather, Herschel Pascal, aka Zvi Eli, was born in Roumania in 1861, married Edna Jean, aka Ethel Sheyndel, and had a family in Yassy, Roumania. There were nine children: Anna, Simon, Zelda, Bertha, Della, Sarah, Max, Aron, and a daughter whose name I don't know. Edna Jean died in Yassy in 1906, and Herschel remarried. The name of his second wife was Clara. The family emigrated to the United States and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They did not all come at the same time: most of the children preceeded Herschel, as did Clara, and the daughter whose name I don't know remained in Roumania. Herschel himself arrived on February 14, 1911. He sailed from Rotterdam on the Potsdam on February 4, 1911. On his Inspection Card, his name is spelled Hersch Paskal. I'm finding many references to his daughter Sarah and her children, but I don't find mention of Herschel or Zvi Eli anywhere.
