    Lubnowski children

    In the 1901 census the following children were listed for Morris and Matilda Lubnowski at 64 Wellesley Street, Mile End:
    Bertha aged 19 born Germany
    Annie aged 17
    Samuel aged 14
    Jane aged 12
    Millie aged 10
    The four above born in Spitalfields
    Yetta aged 7
    Esther aged 6
    Two above born in Mile End
    The births of the children were registered as follows:
    Annie 1884 - Mile End
    Samuel 1886 - Mile End
    Jane 1889 - Mile End
    Milly 1891 - Mile End
    Yetta 1893 - Mile End
    Esther 1895 - St George in the East
    Jane Lubnowski in Quarter 1 of 1915 was married to Joseph Ascher in Mile End.
    They had a daughter named Maisie R Ascher born in 1919 in Wandsworth.
    Bertha Lubnowski in Quarter 3 of 1906 was married to Harry Cohen in Mile End.
    They subsequently had two sons as follows:
    1912: Judah Cohen born in Mile End
    1914: Joseph Cohen born in Hackney
    There is one child who seems to be connected but whose parentage I cannot as yet trace.
    In 1911 a John Abrahams was born in Mile End and his mother's maiden name is given as Lubnowski. Kosminski's other sister, Betsy, has married Woolf Abrahams.

    Chris, you can probably eliminate Yetta as the mother because she changed her name from Lubnowski to Cohen, by deed poll, in 1921.

    Address, 5 Ashcroft Rd, Bow.

    Thanks to Chris and Robert for posting these details.

    Rob House and I have been making a fairly determined effort, over the last 8 months or so, to trace descendants of Aaron's family. Having regard to the privacy of the family, we thought it was probably best not to post any details beyond Aaron's own generation.

    The descendants who have responded have been very helpful, but unfortunately none of them knows anything of Aaron (other than what they have read in books about the Whitechapel Murders). However, they have given us some useful additional information about the family - for example, they were able to confirm that Woolf Abrahams was Aaron's brother, not his brother-in-law. Rob is in the process of getting more genealogical information from Poland, and when we have that we'll post an update here.

    I'm fairly new to the message boards and I'm just amazed at the work you are doing. Is the lack of knowledge among the descedants in itself significant? Does it indicate this was clearly a black sheep whom no-one talked about? Whether or not he was the Whitechapel murderer I'm not sure I'd want snapshots of him in my family photo-album. Does the fact that family descendants clearly knew Aron was a suspect in the Whitechapel murders prove once and for all that he is the shadowy Anderson/McNaghten suspect?

    I'm more of a Druittist myself and I might be asking something very stupid (remember I'm new) but have descendants of the Druitts been traced in this way?

    Thanks for your comment.

    My feeling is that the lack of knowledge about Aaron among descendants of the family isn't significant in itself. Knowledge about Aaron's generation is incomplete anyway. Some family members have knowledge of (and remember) Woolf and Matilda, but Woolf and Matilda were still living in the late 1930s, whereas Aaron died twenty years early, and had been in Colney Hatch and Leavesden since 1891.

    In addition, I think there might well have been a natural reticence concerning a member of the family who had been mentally ill.

    I think it's difficult to argue in either direction based on this lack of knowledge.

    John Ruffels would be the expert on that, but I think the descendants of the Druitt family have been pretty thoroughly traced. In his book on Druitt, Dan Farson included information from several members of the family, including two of MJD's nieces.
