      Buchor Russo's first wife passed away ca. 1895, seven days after the birth of Baruch, their third child. During "the month" after her passing, Buchor married Lea Nahmias. According to the then custom, she was referred to as "la maná" by her grand children. Maná is "grandmother", and "la maná" was used to refer to the senior matriarch of a family.
