The Rosenbaum Legacy is about Louis and Rebecca Rosenbaum who crossed the Atlantic Ocean around 1860 in sailing ships, perhaps with steam engines. They met and married and had twenty-seven grandchildren. Their oldest daughter, Sarah, married David Benyas, whose brother Simon had eleven children. Sarah’s daughter, Ida, married Maurice Rice, who had nine siblings.
Seven generations later, there are probably over one hundred descendants from these three families. Most have prospered. We owe a debt of gratitude to our ancestors. I became a fourth generation member of this family and was a Mustang’s daughter. My father was an officer without benefit of a college education and was therefore a “Mustang.” My childhood was tragic and lonely but very interesting. I lived in five states in the first six years of my life. We moved to Miami when I was twelve, and my life changed for the better. A voracious reader, I found an early attempt to write by keeping a diary for six years. It has been a walk back in time reading about the exciting years of my adolescence. The diary ends with a question mark.
