    I believe he had a brother Yissachar Dov who also came to New York.

    I spoke with Dr. Lamm, they are not from the same family.

    Shimon Lamm was actually the great grandson of Hasar Sholom. He was the son of Yosef Yoske Lamm and Miriam Rokeach, daughter of Elazar Rokeach, the eldest son of Hasar Sholom.
    He lived on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and was one of the founders of the Shinever Chevra Anshei Sefard. He was also the great grandson of (and named for) Shimon M’Yaraslav Marilis. He was my great grandfather. To my regret, I don’t have any details about his brother Yissachar Dov, who is buried near him at Union Field.

    He was my Great Grandfather. Founded Shinever Kloiz on the E.S. but never considered himself mara d’asra. He was was a mohel mumcha and had hor’ah from his uncle the Divrei Yechezkal of Shinov. Was close to his cousin R. Moshe of Shinov as well. His father was R. Yosef Yoske Lamm son-in-law of R. Elazar Rokeach, son of the Sar Shalom. R. Yosef Yoske’s father, R. Yeoshua Lamm was the son-in-law of R. Shimon of Yarislov for whom R. Shimon Lamm was named. R. Shimon Lamm’s father-in-law was R. Yosef Chaim Glantz, son of R. Hersh Glantz, son-in-law of the Aryeh Debei Ilayi, son-in-law of the Yismach Moshe. He came to the U.S. in 1905, his wife and seven children came some time later. 3 married children remained in Europe. Adler family of Yerushalayim and L.A. descend from his older brother R. Avraham Alter Lamm A.B.D. Zolkev, author of Ashel Avraham. He did have a brother Yissachar Dov who is also buried in Union Field. Any additional info. appreciated.

    יליד עיר בעלזא, נתגדל בחצר הקודש, הסתופף בצל קדשו של זקי
    הרה״ק רי אלעזר זצוק״ל ודו״ז כ״ק מרן מהר״י זצוק״ל, אחר חתונתו
    עבר לגור בשינובא מקום מגוריו של חותנו, מוהל מומחה, קיבל
    הוראה מדו״ז הרה״ק בעל דברי יחזקאל משינובא זצוק״ל, נסע לגור
    באמריקה בשנת תרס״ה בברכת בן דודו כ״ק מרן מהרי״ד זצוק״ל ובן
    דודו הרה״ק רי משהלה שיניבער זצוק״ל שצאצאיו ישארו ערליכער
    יודין, היה מהמיסדים של השינובער קלויז באיסט סייד.

    I am trying to locate a Shimon Rokeach who was, according to family tradition, a brother of the Sar Shalom. I have been unsuccessful. Is there perhaps another Shimon Rokeach connected to the Sar Shalom?

    Trying to reestablish contact with Avrahm Feigenbaum who worked with me on the Lamm yichus back in 19890-90.
