This is a picture of Shmuel Leib and Chana Sara Levin , daughter of Feiga Liba  and Avraham Coplon. Her daughter, Fruma/Fanny  Levin Topolsky and  first cousin, Slavka Ziskind ( my grandmother ) escorted Feiga Liba to America. The passenger lists and census verify this family story. My grandmother and Feiga Liba are both buried at Beth Israel Cemetary, Schenectady, N.Y..  It is unfortunate that we lost track of Fanny Levin Topolsky. Her parents and brothers perished in the Holocaust.  Perhaps someone knows where Fanny's grandchildren are.
