Senator John Forbes KERRY
It was incorrectly reported that according to Felix
GUNDACKER firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.ihff.at,
Senator John Forbes KERRY's grandmother Ida LOEWE is a descendant of
Sinai LOEW. In fact, other than the similar last
names, there is no known family connection. As GUNDACKER points out KERRY's
ancestors are about 300 years and many kilometers from Sinai LOEW, and LOEW is
too common a surname to say that all LOEWs are related.
Of course a connection is still possible and more research would be welcome.

Friedrich, like his brother Otto KOHN, converted to Roman Catholicism and changed his name to Frederick KERRY.
Fred, who worked as an accountant at his uncle's shoe factory. In 1905, the young family immigrated to America.
After entering through Ellis Island, the family first lived in Chicago and then
settled in Boston. Fred and Ida had two more children in America, Mildred (1910)
and Richard (1915). Fred and Ida and their three children lived in
Brookline, where Fred became a prominent man in the shoe business and regularly
attended Sunday Catholic church services. Fred did not tell and no one would
have guessed that the family had Jewish roots. In 1921, Fred Kerry, at
age 48, entered a Boston hotel and shot himself in the head. Some say the
suicide was due to financial stress or depression. Perhaps the transition from
Czech Jew to American Catholic was too great and unsupported a spiritual,
psychological and social change.
