Morris {Moshe} Batter

Born 20 May 1874 in “Russia-Yiddish” (as listed by the 1900 and 1910 U.S. Federal Censuses and U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes) to Ethe {Aytah Yachnah} and Barnie {Dov Baer} Batter.

Likely immigrated to New Haven, CT with his mother and father in 1881 (age 7).

Married Jennie {Golde} Kravet in 1896 (age 22).

He owned a plumbing business in New Haven.

A WWI draft card from 1917-1918 showed Morris and Jennie living at 231 Sherman Avenue, New Haven, CT, and owning a plumbing business at 43 Dixwell Avenue. He is described as of medium height, stout build, with grey eyes and dark brown hair.

He may have been fairly successful, because in 1910 the household has a servant, Mary Biasky (age 48, from “Russian-Yiddish”), living with them. At this point he also owned his own home with a mortgage. In March 1921 he took a trip to Hamilton, Bermuda.

Died 7 June 1953 in New Haven, CT, buried in the Jewell Street Cemetery, Congregation B’nai Jacob portion.
