Thank you to Stacy Bushey for the information
Note: " . . . the family, which now included Bea and three sisters, moved to Lewiston, Maine. They owned a small farm, and Eli worked as a shoemaker. The years in Maine were some of the happiest of their lives; however since there were no other Jews in the area, Eli and Celia began to worry about their daughters’ futures. Although Eli was not a religious man, his father had been extremely observant, and when Bea was 13, the Schwalb family moved back to Lynn."
