Biographical Details

NameElizabeth Pomeranz was also known as Elizabeth Cooper.1
ImmigrantThis was the name on her immigration manifiest.
1888BirthShe was born on 6 January 1888 in Pinsk, Belarus. There are three signed documents in which Aunt Elizabeth enters her birth age:
1. Her naturalization petition (23 October 1911): 6 January 1888.
2. Her emergency passport application (10 April 1916 : 19 January 1888
3. Her application for a social security card (26 January 1942): 19 January 1894
The handwritten signatures are the same on all three documents; what is a poor genealogist to do?2
1904ImmigrationShe migrated to Ellis Island in New York from Copenhagen aboard the S.S. Island on 23 July 1904. She used the name Grune Neiditsch; Jankel and Chaie Neiditsch were fellow passengers.1,2,3
1910Residence (family)She boarded with Ephraim Kuperman and Rochel Eisenberg at 10 East 114 Streeet in New York, New York on 16 April 1910. According to Aunt Hannah, when Elizabeth Pomeranz moved into the household, Uncle Israel fell in love with her although she was dating another man at the time. Israel moved to Chicago in 1912 to escape the situation, but he and Elizabeth corresponded — apparently warmly.4
1913AnecdoteIn 1913 Elizabeth had originally immigrated because she disliked her Pinsk stepmother; when she got to the United States she boarded, apparently very uncomfortably, with a family named Neiditch. She worked in the same button factory as Ida Cooper Guterman. Elizabeth told Ida about her situation. Ida persuaded her parents, Ephraim and Rochel, to take Elizabeth in. Their son, my Uncle Israel, fell in love with Elizabeth although she was dating another man at the time. Israel moved to Chicago to escape the situation. But he and Elizabeth corresponded — apparently warmly — and decided to marry.5
1913Marr-PartnersElizabeth Pomeranz married Israel Cooper on 31 May 1913 in Chicago.1
AnecdoteFrom 1914 to 1916

After her marriage Elizabeth felt that she should visit Pinsk to see her family before she and Israel had children of their own. She went over but was trapped in Pinsk by the outbreak of World War I in August, 1914. The family had to arrange protection for her through the State Department and for money to be sent to her for subsistence during the war. Passage was finally arranged and she arrived back in the United States on May 4, 1916 aboard the SS Noordam.5,6

1914Residence (family)Israel Cooper and she lived at 1248 North Hoyne Avenue in Chicago, Illinois, on 28 September 1914.7
1916Psgr List.

Note

The book A Thousand Years of Pinsk contains an interesting biographical sketch of Cousin Lozer:

Lozer Kantor

Born in 1891 in Pinsk, to middle class parents who gave him a traditional education. His father, Yosef Kanter, had “forest” businesses. As a youth, Lazer Kanter belonged to the “small SS” a later took an active role in the party’s work in Pinsk. In 1908 L. Kanter "wandered" to America. Seeing the profession of a watchmaker, in the U.S. he took up a similar profession and till this very day is occupied in the jewelry business.

In America Lozer Kanter also dedicated himself to "Societal" activities, became a member in the "socialist-territorialist" organization and since 1910 has belonged to the socialist party. He was one of the energetic activists in the “Pinsker Volunteers.” Later with great devotion he worked for Pinsker Relief and was the dynamic pushing force for all the undertakings at the time of campaigns to help the unfortunate in the old country.

He always displayed ideas and initiative in the area of finding various sources of income. With his energy and commitment he also influenced those around him who worked with him.

He belonged to the "capable" membership in Pinsker branch 210 Workmen Circle and for the span of many years was the treasurer of the branch. Now he is a member of the Executive. He is also active in the School Movement of the Workmen Circle, was one of the founders, and also the first secretary for the Workmen Circle’s Schools number 2 and 4 in The Bronx.

Lozer Kanter also does much work for the campaign for the workers in the Land of Israel, which is managed through the Workmen Circle branches. He belongs among most active "doers" in the committee for “Thousand Years Pinsk.”.15
