Hello! Family lore is that my gggf Avrhm KARGER was conscripted as a Cantonist and stationed in Warsaw when he met and married my gggm Pearl (Manna) SPIEGEL. They returned to Lyubar, Ukraine to raise a family after his mandatory military service ended after 25 years. Pearl died in the U.S. in 1923 - on her gravestone it names her as bat Pesach, and 89 years old, which would date her birth to about 1833, although I am not convinced this is accurate. I have never been able to find a Pesach SPIEGEL/SZPIEGEL in Warsaw. Her mother's name might have been Anna. Pearl had at least one sibling, an older sister named Esther who remained in Warsaw. I have searched on Genealogy Indexer before without any success at a match to this elusive :?: branch of my tree, and I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thank you!
