Joseph E. Flaxman: born 7/5/1898 in Petrograd (now St. Petersberg) Russia; died in Studio City, California on 9/14/1985. He is Jewish. Was married to Estelle Myrtle Zelda Flaxman (nee Berger). She was born in Chicago, Illinois and that is where they met and married, I believe. He was an electrician at Cane Welding Supply Co. in Los Angeles at the time my father was born in 1924. Estelle and Joseph had at least 4 boys: Harold Raymond (Ray), Lawrence (Larry) Erwin, and Charles, in order of oldest to youngest. Joseph and family lived in and around the Los Angeles area while the boys were young, then divorced Estelle before I was old enough to know him. I never knew Estelle either. He returned just months before he died. I hope this helps others, but I would like to know if anyone is related to me as well- I do not know if I have any living relatives. Thanks.
