Rebecca (Bessie) Samuels (née Levine) (b.1875) was Moses Levine’s sister. In 1895, she married Joseph Samuels (b.1874), at which time the couple lived at 116 Agnes St. and Joseph was employed as a tinsmith. He later became a retail merchant in Toronto and owned a hardware store located at 275 Queen St. West. Their children were Harry (b.1896), Fanny (b.1898), Ida (b.1900), Annie (b.1902), Mary (Martha) (b. 8 Dec. 1908), and Abe (b.1911). Harry was drafted in 1917, and, following the war, he and Fanny worked in their father’s store. The family also lived on Queen Street, but by the 1930s had moved to 410 Brunswick Ave.
