Note on Husband: Lehman "Leo" MICHELSOHN (Michelson)

Leo Michelson, born in Germany on May 22, 1872 arrived in New York in

1895. From there he went to Cincinnati to join family members. In 1898

he married Pauline Ascher, a native Detroiter. She died in 1945. Until

Prohibition, Mr. Michelson was in the wholesale liquor business as a

member of the firm I. Michelson & Brothers (of Cincinnati),

representing them in Michigan. He then became an insurance business

man, associated with Fred A. Ginsburg Co. President of Montefiore

Lodge, and because of his devotion to this organization, they created

the Michelson Service Fund. He was also a life member of Temple Beth

El, Detroit Historical Society, and the Elks He had four children:

Max, Lawrence, Lillian (Haber), and Alyce (Rosenblatt).

Note on Wife: Pauline ASCHER

As of 1910, Pauline had four children, all of them still living. She

and her husband also had a servant living with them. Her name was

Sarah Berney, and she was born in Canada in 1888. Sarah was divorced

and had one child who didn't live there with her.

Ernestine Ascher Sgro remembered going to "Aunt Polly's" house after

her father's funeral in 1935. Pauline's house was "palacial" compared

to what Ernie was used to. She remembered Pauline sitting at the head

of the table, and she rang a little bell -- tinkle tinkle. The maid

came, and Pauline said "Lottie, bring me a glass of water." Ernie

remembered this 70 years later, so it must have made a big impression

on her.
