Notes:

  • The titles “Uncle”, “Great Aunt”, etc. are from Abe Caplan’s perspective.
  • In the back row on the left: Great Aunt Tzepa (Mema Sepa) Kleban & Great Uncle Sorel (Srul) Kleban are wife and husband.  It may look like Tzepa is in the row in front, but she (very short) is standing next to her (very tall) husband
  • In the back row on the right: Great Aunt Rose Cleban & Morris Cleban are wife and husband
  • In the 3rd row: Uncle Joseph Gerber & Rose Gerber are husband and wife
  • In the 3rd row: Pearl (Perlman) Caplan & Uncle Sam Caplan are wife and husband
  • In the 3rd row on the right: Rose Caplan & William (Willie) Caplan are wife and husband
  • In the 3rd row, left, and 2nd row, left: Uncle Ben (Benny) Kottler & Ethel (Caplan) Kottler are husband and wife
  • In the 2nd row: Yetta (Etta) Caplan & Uncle Louis Caplan are wife and husband
  • In the 2nd row: Sarah (Lederman) Caplan & Aaron Caplan are wife and husband.  Abe Caplan is their son.  Note that Abe is not a little boy in short pants sitting on his daddy’s lap.  He is a big boy in long pants and standing on his own.  But Ruth Gerber’s large hair bow in front of him is hiding this fact.
  • In the 2nd row: Bubbie Sarah Kleban Caplan & Zadee Morris Caplan are husband and wife and this is their golden wedding anniversary.
  • In the 2nd row: Bertha (Brucha Caplan) Silverman & Uncle Max (Motel) Silverman are wife and husband
  • In the 1st row: Saul and Jeannette Kottler are brother and sister.  Uncle Ben (Benny) Kottler & Ethel (Caplan) Kottler (2nd and 3rd rows) are their parents
  • In the 1st row: Jerry Caplan’s parents are Yetta (Etta) Caplan & Uncle Louis Caplan
  • In the 1st row: “Little” Minnie Caplan (Bleckman) and Isadore (Izzy) Caplan are brother and sister, and like Abe and Sam (far right, 2nd row), their parents are Sarah (Lederman) Caplan & Aaron Caplan

One thought on “Mr. & Mrs. Morris Caplan: Golden Wedding Anniversary

  1. In August 2011, Rose (Caplan) Engel recalled from this picture, “My beloved Mother made the dress I was wearing and embroidered the Russian style shirt my brother [Jerry] was wearing.”

    Thank you, Rose.
