    This new thread should be read in conjunction with a much earlier thread on Henry Moses-Rosa Hart posted 22.4. 2012. In that thread I posted data on some of the lines which connected through marriages to Benjamin Hart b unknown died circa 1836 London my 4x great grandfather clothes salesman, glover, tailor of Rosemary Lane and later 3 and 7 Holywell Street. His daughter Rosa married Henry Moses.

    This new thread looks in detail at Sylvester Moses 1831-1913 son of Henry Moses/Rosa Hart who married two sister Rachel Isaacs 1826-1858 and Hannah Isaacs 1835-1866. The two sisters were daughters of Samuel Isaacs who died in 1838 and his wife Leah Simmons who died in 1876. Leah re- married to Michael Barnett. My interest is in looking in greater detail at the Isaacs/Simmons lines to see if they link to my Moses/Hart paternal line through marriages. In addition, I have previously posted on my Simons/Simmons/Simmonds relationship through marriage to my Jacobs lines and also the Isaacs of Chatham who married into my Crawcour and other lines. This ongoing research is being used to see whether or not the various lines relate further to each other.

    See Synagogue Scribes GSM192/04 Marriage 24 Nov 1819 -Samuel ISAACS father's Hebrew name Shlomeh Zalman-Leah SIMMONS -father's Hebrew name Aharon Hatter.
    Samuel Isaacs died in 1838- see Synagogue Scribes Will Extracts NA 912 Samuel Isaacs 7 July 1838 10 White Street Cutler Street Clothier wife Leah - Lewis Isaacs Clothier 6 White Street witness; Abraham Simmons witness victualler 3 Cutler Street.

    I will post more data on the various lines.

    This post provides follow up data on the parents of Leah Simmons. Synagogue Scribes Will Extracts NA 756 Aaron SIMMONS 29 August 1834 Black Lion Petticoat Lane Whitechapel victualler former late wife Judy and two infant children Joshua and Sarah. In his will there is no mention of a second wife but son in law Samuel ISAACS clothes salesman 10 White Street . Aaron left Samuel 200 plus various other bequests. There was no reference to a second wife and Synagogue Scribes have said that a probable marriage between Aaron Simmons and Hannah MYERS GSM 205/03 and Cemetery Scribes ID 8422 may refer to Aaron-Aaron Simmons father Isaiah 24 Oct 1821-Hannah Myers -father Moshe maybe the same Aaron who named his late wife Judy. There is no proof of this.
    The suggestion maybe that Aaron was married twice but he makes no reference to any wife called Hannah in his will and in addition Leah Simmons was already married to Samuel Isaacs in 1819. It maybe that Leah's mother is not known and that Aaron re- married to a Judy given the young age of the children identified as infants at the time of his death in 1834. More research is needed.
    Synagogue Scribes suggests that Joshua Simmons maybe GSM312/24 who married Catherine LEWIS and Sarah Simmons maybe GSM318/1 who married Joseph JONES.

    I will post further.
