    And he was still survived by his wife (perhaps she was much younger)

    Of course she was younger, if his youngest son was born when he was 65 years of age.

    His oldest was born when he was 35 years old [or young, depends from which angle you look at it.]

    Interestingly, his wife and mother were named Rachel.

    A article which claims that Rabbi Shlomo Milles hid from his wife his real age (15! years).

    According to the 1910 United States Federal Census, Rabbi Milles wife Tillie was born in 1856.

    Thats a 39 year difference between spouses!

    He had a Shul.

    Thank you for the information you shared. It is very valuable to me as I am one of his descendants. I do not have access to read the article you have listed above. Could you possibly give me the gist of it. I was hoping to find out more information about my heritage.
