Much of this information was provided by Sylvia ROSENBERG, the daughter of Peter CAPLAN's son Isadore Louis, below, in early 1980s.

1. Peter (Pesach Berra Shraga) CAPLAN (March 1845, presumably Ligum - June 1916, Baltimore; said to have been age 19 when came to U.S.) married (1862) Rachel (Beth Shera) SCHNEIDER (Nov.1850-June 1908; daugh. of Israel Louis and Chaya SCHNEIDER, and sister of Mary, whom Peter married 2nd after Rachel's death; see below and Schneider Families)

NOTE: Mrs. Rosenberg writes, "Pesach Caplan's naturalization papers are made out in the name of Bera Caplan. A notation in my father's handwriting says his name in Russia was Pesach Berre Shraga. There is no mention of a city or village they came from. So far as I can make out, he was naturalized in April 8, 1899. According to the paper I have he declared his intention to become a citizen in Sept. 25, 1896."
