Freida was actually the mother of 7 children: Louis, Benjamin, Sarah, Jane, Albert, Harry, and Ed. I was a great granddaughter, but never met her. She came from Shilel, Czarist Russia, which is now Lithuania. She met and married Jacob Sanders in Russia prior to immigrating to the United States. They settled in Joliet Illinois and remained there the rest of their lives. All 7 children were born there, but I do not have the details for many of them.
