Charles (Elchonin) Weinstein was born in the shtetl of Deveen, Russia in the late 19th century.
His Mother's name was Chay Fagel. He had four brothers, one named Joe, another named Jacob Blinder.
The family name was probably Mazursky, ie Charles was born Charles Mazursky. The name was in an old family bible. The boys were farmed out to learn trades, Joe to a Weinstein, Jacob to a Blinder. Switching names was a very useful tactic to avoid the Tsar's conscription. Supposedly when Charles arrived in the USA after Joe he used the same name that Joe had: Weinstein.
