Family papers included are telegrams on the occasion of the 1890 wedding of Aaron and Amelia; wills for Amelia Levy Goodman and Aaron Goodman; obituaries; and some masonic material for Aaron Goodman. The scrapbook also includes personal correspondence. Among the correspondence is a letter dated 15 May 1878, from Esther Goodman, Amelia’s sister and first wife of Aaron Goodman, to her mother Rosa Levy. (Esther presumably died in childbirth before 1890). Refers to Pauline and Jacob (perhaps her sister Pauline and her brother J. W. Levy). Genealogy note: It is possible that this is the Pauline who became Mrs. Joseph Frank and later Mrs. Edward Lederer. Pauline and Joseph’s son, Perry Frank (Sr.) married Amelia Baruch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hartwig M. Baruch and niece of Bernard Baruch. In 1934, Amelia Baruch Frank divorced Perry Frank Sr. and in 1937 married Polan Banks, a writer, in Havana. They were later divorced. Perry Frank Sr. and Amelia Baruch Frank had a son, Perry Frank Jr., of the New York Times advertising staff and American Broadcasting Company. Perry Frank Jr. married Joanne Schenck, daughter of Loew’s president, Nicholas Schenk (1931?), who later divorced him and married Robert Brandt. Perry Frank Sr. married Dora (Doree?), who already had two children. Charles Levy, who married Estelle Goodman, was a cousin of Perry Frank Jr. J.W. Levy, brother of Amelia Levy Goodman, of Nashville, Tennessee and Union City, Tennessee, was connected with Friedman and Levy store that by 1881 had become New York Store. Photos in the scrapbook include images of the Frank family, Rosa Levy, Leonard Goodman Sr. (Estelle Goodman Levy’s brother and son of Amelia Levy Goodman and Aaron Goodman), Amelia Levy Goodman and L.S.
