I was thrilledd to hear from you re Tissers. Yes since having posted the notice I've been able to confirm hat Minnie Tisser was my great Aunt. She was born also in 1877 in Russia and her Russian name was Chescha Mera Kagan.
(Hebrew name. Chaya Miriam, hence I suppose the taking of "Minnie" I don's know when she married Sam Tisser but that was the reason my grandmother went to Dewsbury. They had a "bazaar" (given job on David's birth cert and were living at 67 Mill Rd Dewsbury. Minnie died 1810 frp, "cardiac Brinchitis" address given 72 Daisy Hill (where the shop was) They give her maiden name as Cohen (Kagan and Cohen being synonomous).
On the 1911 Census there is a boy - Isaac b. 1902 (Dewsbury registrars don't have his birth Cert. I think he was born in Stamford Hill or Tower Hamlets area of London.
there is also and Arnold aged 19. I wondered if he was Sam's younger brother or nephew?
I have photohgraphs of Sam with the two boys and also one of Sam with Minnie.
I also have photographs of "Mrs. Tisser with her two girls, Freeda and Stella.( these were found after my mother died this year in an album)there is also a chalk sketch of Stella by someone in the family. I'm told "Mrs Tisser"(NO 1ST Name ever mentioned by anyone) was also my mother's 'Seemstress' And I know that it was through meetings at their place on Shabbat that my mother met my father, so I must presume that the reason my father's family knew the "Tissers" was becausse they were considered cousins even though Sam married again. And again presume if it's the same Sam after remarrying in Leeds must have come to London (address unknown). But after Dewsbury I don't know what happened to the boys - ;no mention of them or photographs in London. According to another cousin she thinks they went to America?
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO SEE THE PHOTOS I COULD E-MAIL THEM TO YOU,

. Please let me know yours. I would really like to know who the second Mrs Tisser was. If there is a marriage certificate and where David and Isaac went as they were actually cousins of my Dad's. Thanks a lot Hazel Kaye
