      • Esther Levy -m. SamOf blessed memory. B. June 19, 1917, d. June 24, 1981. Benezra
        [New York]
        I believe my father's family was from Galipoli. On my father's birth certificate, his name is Abraham Benestra, his mother's name was Esther Benestra (maiden name Passuk, or something like that), and it looks as if his father's name was Louis Benestra. According to my parents, the name was recorded as Benestra because when my grandparents arrived at Ellis Island they pronounced Ben-Ezra with a Spanish accent and that's how it got transcribed. I don't know why my father's name was listed as Abraham—I always understood that it was Samuel Abraham Judah Benezra. Anyway, it was just Samuel Benezra on all other papers.
