    Notes 
    • From his daughter, Marcelle Pollakoff London:
      "In the Jewish religion, birthdays are so many days before or after, or in between, a holiday. So (Uncle Izzy's) fell on Valentine's Day one year, so that's the one he picked!
      "He enjoyed being with people. He had all kinds of jokes to tell people. He was crazy about his granddaughter (Sue London).
      "He came to the US because he didn't want to be a rabbi in Russia."

      Izzy's niece, Ruth Sheinaus Asimov (daughter of sister Nettie) called her uncle "friendly."
      Ruth's daughter, Nanette Asimov, also remembers him that way.

      In her 1914 letters to fiance Louis Sheinaus, Izzy's sister, Nettie Pollakoff, refers to her brother as Isidore, not Isaac.
      But Izzy's daughter, Marcelle London, identified him as Isaac on his death certificate.
