According to Hana Shaf-Brener, there were two Korb families in Shkud.
Aharon Korb, apparently a beggar, was married to Feiga, nee Kohen. The couple had three daughters – Hinda, Basya, and Yusta – and a son, Mayer.
Chatze Korb, also a beggar, was married to Rachel, nee Markut, the daughter of Nachman. Chatze and Rachel had two daughters, Rivka and Dvoira, and four sons, of whom we know the name of the eldest, Yosef. The oldest daughter, Rivka, helped her mother care for the family.
Shaf-Brener provides this information about Chatze Korb’s tragic fate. After the violent Nazi occupation of Shkud, “… some Shkud Jews were violently mistreated. They were hitched to carts loaded with bodies and bricks from the ruins and forced by murderous beatings to pull them….They hitched Dr. Lev and Chatze Karb to carts …Afterwards, they brought everybody to the Shaul Hall, tortured them insanely, and murdered them” (9).
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Tax and Voters List records that a Yosel Korb, son of Itsik, was living in Shkud from at least 1904.
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database records the marriage of Khatskel Korb, born in 1895 to Yosel and Rebeka, to Rokhe Mekit, the daughter of Shmuel and Bashe Rashe. The couple were married in Kretinga, 1923.
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database also tells us that Feige (nee Kan) and her husband Orel Korb had a son Meyer in 1906. (Orel is sometimes a Yiddish diminutive of Aharon.) Meyer, a currier, married Eta Glezer in 1939.
Finally, Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database records that Deivas Korb (presumably the Dawid Korb mentioned below) and his wife Feige (nee Kan) had a daughter, Base Gite, born in 1908.
Is it possible that Deivas/Dawid is Aharon/Orel? Is it likely that two men, Deivas/Dawid and Aharon/Orel were each married to women named Feige Kahn and each had a daughter named Base and a son named Meyer?
