KRAFT
Jean (Abel) Cohen 2800 N. Ocean Drive, Riviera Beach, FL 33404
My great-grandfather, Jacob Leicht, arrived in NYC in 1851 and his two sisters arrived a few years later. He stayed in New York, but his sisters moved to Sullivan County, and one of them married a man named Kraft. I have no other information about the family, but I wonder if anyone in Callicoon remembers the name. My grandmother was Jacob Leicht's daughter. Jacob married Dorothea and they had 11 children -- all in NYC.
