- [??] Russo -m. Sol [??]
Sol emigrated to Jerusalem with her son, "Buchor" and his family in 1904.
Isaac did not mention Sol's husband.
Possibly he had already passed away by that time.
There were four children: Buchor, Luna, Streya/Ester, Dona.
One of the three sisters was married to a Kimhi/(Kamhi?)
*Buchor Russo was a merchant in Monastir, with his own shop.
According to family lore, his son Baruch remembered as a young boy going to "other countries" with his father to do business.
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.
Buchor Russo had three children with his first wife, and five with his second wife.
Buchor Russo relocated his family, including his mother—Sol—to Jerusalem in 1904.
Upon arrival, he "went straight to the Old City, and opened a fruit shop."
