Avram Michel Schleger married 14-year-old Taube (then) Echt or Yecht,
sister of his first wife, Rochel, who had burned to death.--Joe Chandler

Schlager שלאגר or שליגן Nelson Yecht Echt Family from Lokacze, Russia, Poland, USSR, Ukraine
Deep gratitude to Joseph Chandler of Portland, Maine who made an amazing family tree that got me started
I first created this page when I could see no futher back than my great-grandmother Toby Nelson. But that was her married name. She was Toby Yecht.
