The far reaching influence of the Fordon Jews part 3

In the continuing effort to document everyone I find from the ancestral home of Morris David Rosenbaum, I have had some more good residents of Fordon, Poland brought to my attention.
At the Judah L. Magnes Museum in California, are held many family histories. Included amongst them are the records of Oser and Bertha Michelson Meyer(FHL film #1031331). According to this record, Bertha and her sister Henriette, both married men from Fordon.
The first sister, Henriette Michelson (1827-1916) married Benjamin Levy(15 Feb 1826-8 Jun 1900). The second sister, Bertha (1834-25 Sep 1897) married Oser Meyer (1824- 30 Sep 1894). Both families raised their families in the San Francisco area and are buried at the Hills of Eternity Cemetery in Colma, California.
