  CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH (Microfilm 1910): ORECKOVSKY, 7 July 1910, 2 pm, 516 Lake Ave North, Duluth; father, Joseph, 42, Russia, tailor; mother, Annie, 39, Russia, 6 children, 516 Lake Ave, Duluth Hannah was pregnant with Irving at the same time her daughter, Mary Oreckovsky Oxman was pregnant with her firstborn, Ralph. In childhood, Irving became known as "Uncle" to all his family and friends. Uncle, George Cohen (later Cowan), and Isadore "Is" Crystal were very close friends. "We called ourselves 'The Trio'. That June evening before Uncle died, the three of us had gone to a movie together. We were together until about 11 at night, then parted ways for home as it started to storm. My next memory is of carrying Uncle's casket down the stairs from Hannah and Joe's home at 5-1/2 E. 5th Street. It was a very sad time for everyone." (Is Crystal, 1994) Uncle was accidentally electrocuted on that June night just before his 17th birthday when lightning hit the electrical line to the house just as he was turning on or off an electric lamp or curling iron. Fay Oxman Ridley (1993) said Uncle's mother, Hannah, was visiting in Minneapolis when the accident happened, and that Uncle was alone that night. The next day, Jerome Oxman went to return Uncle's bathing suit to him and found him dead in bed. Jerome (1993) said he had nightmares for years after that. Lois Oreck Levy (1993) said Uncle would have little Billy Oreck, Tokie and Dora's 4-year-old son, stay overnight, because they were very close. Three years later, Billy was also to die by accident, being struck by an auto.
