The Morris (Moshe) Langsam Family

Go Home

Morris Langsam (c1870 - 2 Jun 1919) was probably born in the area that was, Galicia, Poland, to Isaac Langsam and Lena Baehr. His Hebrew name was Moshe. He married Henriette Langsam (c.1869 - 3 Feb 1908) and as per her death record, her parents were Israel Bon and Connie Bon. However, the 1900 US census lists Morris' mother-in-law residing with him under her surname of Baer. There is also an index to a Brooklyn marriage record (cert# 733) listing the marriage of Morris Longsom to Yetta Baer on 1 Mar 1891. Morris and Helen (as she was sometimes recorded) had four known children. The town in Europe were Michael was born is not known. However, there was a visit from the town of Stroze, Poland by his brother, Jacob Aron Langsam, who left Bremen, Germany and arrived at Ellis Island aboard the Main on 29 May 1906. It records Jacob Aron as being a married 42 year old. Jacob Aron gave his final destination as his brother, Moche Langsam living at 46 Bayard, Brooklyn NY. The Brooklyn City directories list a Morris Langsam in 1906 at 144 Bayard, Brooklyn. In the 1905 NY Census Morris Langsam, age 36, b. Hungary was living at 142 Bayard St. His family is listed on Bayard in 1910 as well. No other reference to Jacob Aron Langsam is found in US vital records. As there are more than a few Morris Langsams, only the detail definitive to this branch is recorded here. Much of the proof comes from the two Kings County Surrogate Court petitions following the passings of Henrietta and Morris.
