Jacob Pugach

Jacob Pugach ( Yiddish name, Yankel ) whose Hebrew name was Yaakov was born in 1886 and died 29 Jun 1986 in Montreal, Quebec. He was the oldest son of Tema Felhendler and Hershel Tzvi Puguz.
He married Rose Irga, known as Rossie, born in 1894 and died 13 Aug 1973.

My grandmother was very close to Rossie. Over 20 years ago, it was Sarah, Rossie and Jacob's oldest daughter who told Brian Ferstman, my contact from Jewish Family Finder, a lot of family history.

Rossie and Jacob had 2 daughters., Sarah and Thelma. Sarah was born in 1918 and married Morris Gold ( died 23 Jan 2001 ). Thelma, born 14 Oct 1926 married Joseph Irgon.

The Ship S.S. Corsican sailed from Warsaw on 23 Aug 1921 and arrived in Montreal in September. Jacob was with his wife Rossie and daughter Sarah and was heading for his brother Hyman at 243 Bleury St.
