Avram Michel Schleger married 14-year-old Taube (then) Echt or Yecht, sister of his first wife, Rochel

undated letter from Irving Robinson to Susan Cook
Avrum Michel's first wife, Rachel, died in a fire leaving 4 small children named Joseph, Rivka, Hanna and Pesha.
He then married Rachel's half-sister, Toba, who bore him Sarah, Annie, Isaac, Shea, Rose, Max, Becky, Eta and Esther.
Toba mixed Rachel's children with her own and treated them all alike. All the 13 children grew up as brothers and sisters.
The name Schleger was changed to Nelson by my uncle Max when he arrived in the U.S.A.

Deep gratitude to Joseph Chandler of Portland, Maine who made an amazing family tree that got me started
I started when I could see no futher back than my great-grandmother Toby Nelson. But that was her married name. She was Toby Yecht.
