Tombstone Tuesday- Amelia Lefcovitch

Taken in the Jewish Cemetery, Lambeth, South London , 2009

Amelia Lefcovitch (1840-1924) was born Machla Krajsman in Kolo, Poland. She married Myer Lefcovitch there in 1869, and they emigrated to England in 1874. Although she died some years before my grandmother, her great-granddaughter, was born, I like to think she was quite a character. There are happily several photos of her in our family's collection; I've included what I think is probably the best.
