My wife's paternal lineage is unknown. Her father was born in Roxbury, Mass., but, he was adopted. The people who raised him are named below. Their family name is Coushkin but Americanized to Grushkin. I don't know which ship the family came over on and have no information on their Russian background. The family was raised Jewish. Any help would be GREAT..
Morris and Annie Grushkin came to the U.S. sometime around 1902, from Teochin, Russia. They had a 2 year old son named Albert. They lived in Roxbury Mass. They had 3 more children, named Samuel, Milton and Rose. Albert married Minnie, Sam married Edris, Milton married Pauline, Rose married Harry Fridge Berg. Albert & Minnie had 4 children, named, Martin, Betty, Naomi & Michael. Sam & Edris had 2 daughters, named Shirley & Nancy. Milton & Polly had 3 sons named, Carl, Joel & Mark. Rose & Harry had 2 sons named Michael & Mark. Albert's nickname was Mack. He and Minnie lived in Massachusetts all of their life. Sam & Edris, Milton & Polly and Rose & Harry all moved to California and raised their families there.
