Michael Grant's Family Tree: The Mendelson Family

There seems to be some confusion as to how exactly the Josephs in the top branch of the tree fit in. John Josephs said that his great-great-grandparents were Abraham and Rose Mendelson. However, Rose Pearlman, the granddaughter of Abraham and Rose, does not list Leah—the progenitor of the Josephs family—amongst her uncles and aunts. (Indeed, she instead lists another Leah.) She mentions Isaac and Annie Mendelson as her father's cousins. The simplest explanation is that Isaac and Annie were the fathers of Leah Josephs née Mendelson and that John Josephs was mistaken. However, I'd like a bit of proof of this before I remove the question mark from the Josephs' connection.

John Mickler told me that a Manny Passman in New York had "something to do" with the family; I think, though, this family might have been his Levy ancestors, whom I then thought were related to the Leveys in my family, but now know are not.

The brothers Isidor and Manville Levy and Ernest Lee had some connection with Cragside (in Thropton in Northumberland), the first house in the world to be electrified. However, I'm not entirely sure what: the electrification was installed by the 1880s, before they were born.

Place names are birth places if no other places are given; all dates are in British format (DD/MM/YYYY). All living people have been removed from this tree before placing online; if you recognise anyone here as being related to you, please don't hesitate to , especially if you have material to contribute, in return for which I will happily share the full version, with photographs (including of family members in Victorian England), PDF trees, and other materials!
