There was a second Ringel son, Solomon, who did not survive

After all the other Ringel news, this item seems anticlimactic, but it is nevertheless significant that Schija and Feigl Ringel had a fourth child. Salomon Ringel was born on April 15, 1893, and he died on December 18 of the same year. His birth and death records are among the new Ringel vital records that have become available recently from the Berlin Landesarchiv. You have to wonder how the death of a young son affected the Ringel parents and their other children. Hermann was five years old at the time, the sisters a few years older.

It is interesting to think that Helga, who only had aunts, would also have had an uncle if young Salomon had survived..
