Hannah Magaziner Jacoby (Hani, Johanna)

Hannah's Tree

Hannah Magaziner was Henry's younger sister. Her marriage registry lists her parent as Schondl Ziner, female innkeeper. This corresponds to Sari "Schondel" Ganzfried, Anchell's widow, who appeared in the 1869 census as an innkeeper.

Hannah was born in Humenne around 1839. She married Kalman Josef Jacobovics in Humenne on August 17, 1858. Kalman was born on August 12, 1833 in Nagy-Kemence, Hungary (now Slovakia). He made a fortune in the liquor business in Vienna. Hannah and Kalman had at least nine children in Hungary.

In 1879/80, the entire Jacobovics family emigrated to New York on the Circassia from Hamburg to New York by way of Glasgow. The family lived in New York for a while, appearing there in the 1880 census. Two of their daughters married in New York. The family moved to Philadelphia in 1883 and adopted the name Jacoby. Kalman increased his wealth in America in the cigar manufacturing business. The Jacobys were already settled in Philadelphia when Henry and his family arrived, and they lived within a few blocks of the Magaziners. The families apparently remained close: in 1906, the entire Magaziner family in Philadelphia attended the wedding of Hannah's granddaughter, Jenette.

Hannah died in Philadelphia on May 14, 1888, of cancer of the stomach and liver. She was 49 years old. She was buried at East Hill Cemetery, possibly a predecessor of Mt. Carmel, which did not yet exist. Kalman died on April 29, 1911, while he was visiting their son Andrew at his home in Atlantic City. It was reported in newspapers around the country that 78-year-old Kalman was seated surrounded by his family, humming a popular tune, when his heart suddenly stopped and he collapsed dead into the arms of one of his daughters. Son-in-law Kiwa Schwartz closed his Chester department store, managed by Kalman's son Anthony, for the day after Kalman's death. Kalman was buried at Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia according to both his death certificate and the cemetery's records, but I have not yet found his tombstone.
