Farrell family of Roxborough

I am pasting an email I sent to a research whose email address is no longer working. Thank you to anyone who can help!

I read a post that you had written on Ancestry back in 2001, while I was researching my Farrell ancestors. My g-g-g-grandfather was Moses Farrell, from Bucks County PA. I am pretty sure that his father was Benjamin Farrell, b. abt. 1784 in Bucks. I haven't made a definitive connection, but circumstantial evidence points to this. I was wondering if you could help.
Here's what I am thinking and here's what I base my assumptions on:
I have definitively connected Aaron Farrell and Moses as brothers, in a 1900 obituary from THe Bristol gazette, stating that Aaron was killed when he wsa hit by a train, tragic; he was on his way to see his brother, Moses, who lived on Green Lane in Philadelphia. (Moses and wife, Mary A. were the parents of Joseph H. Farrell, Sr. who married Grace Gunning, who, in turn, were the parents of my great grandfather, Joseph H. Farrell, Jr.. who died in 1962.
In the 1870 census, it appears that Benj. Farrell, age 85, was living with Enos Frantz and wife, Fanny. According to your post, Fanny is the daughter of Benjamin and his wife, Maria Fluck. I have found no information about Maria. Nor have I found anything on Aaron's wife, as in one census record, he is described as a widower. In the 1870 census, also, it includes Amanda Brong, and Albert and Laura Brong.
Then in the 1880 census, we find Aaron and (I assume) his brother, Benjamin, living with (or near) William and Amanda Brong and their children. In 1870, Aaron is living with or near Moses and his family.
I am no longer a member of, and I am sure I have a few more bits of info regarding Aaron, Moses and Benjamin (I love these names). I would be incredible grateful to you if you could shed any light on these relationships. If not, it's interesting stuff, right? Thanks again.

Dan Teitelbaum, Raleigh, NC

PS: to bring the family tree to the most recent branch: Joseph H. Farrell, Jr. married Margaret D. Lentz in 1917, they had two daughters: Jacqueline (my grandmother) and Nathalie. Jacqueline married Arthur Casse in 1940. My mother, Marilynn, was born in 1942. She has a sister and a brother. Marilynn married Carl Teitelbaum in 1961. My father, Carl, died in 2000. My wife, Kate and I, married in 1997 and we have two children, Davis, 9, and Mollie, almost 2.

TEITELBAUM family of New York and Russia/Poland

Hello, I am also researching the TEITELBAUM family (my father's side). My grandfather, Maurice, was born in Pinsk in 1901. At the time, it was in Poland, now in Belarus. Maurice's mother was Shana Gittel Levine, from near Droghicin, a small village called Kolonya Jacovleva, also in Belarus. Maurice (his hebrew name was Lazar Moshe) came to the states in 1903. His father, Louis, or Leibel (Aryeh Leib) came over the previous year, ran a paint store and painting service in Brooklyn, NY. We recently had a family reunion in DC last November. It was wonderful.
Anyone else out there a TEITELBAUM or have any connections to Pinsk or Jacovleva? Would love to hear from you!

The CAZES, CASSE, LACASSE families of Quebec.

My mother's maiden name is CASSE. Her grandfather was Joseph LACASSE. His grandfather was born Joseph CAZES and changed it when he immigrated to Massachusetts. I am interested in finding out more about the CAZES family in Ste. Anne de la Pocatiere in Quebec, Canada. I have some pictures, photos, and some stories from living relatives. I came across two tintypes that may be me great great great grandparents, Joseph CAZES and Arthemise MARTIN. I would love to confirm this and also need help identifying other old photos from Quebec.
I am a French teacher so I can read French, if documents are in French. I speak French fluently, also, so I can communicate via telephone.
Hope to find out more! Thanks.
