  In May 1888, Mary was the first Oreckovsky born in America, followed within days by the birth of her dear cousin, Sarah Bright.
  CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH (Microfilm 1888, #228): MARY ORECKOVSKY, 13 May 1888, Duluth; father, Joseph, Russia, age 23 [1865]; mother, Hannah, Russia, 17 [1871] 1907-1908 American Jewish Yearbook: MARY ORECKOVSKY, secretary, The Jolly Coterie, 516 Lake Av. MARRIAGE RECORD (Book T36, Pg 189): WILLIAM C. OXMAN and MARY OXMAN were married 12 Jan 1909 in Duluth by Rabbi I.S. Teplitz. The document signing was witnessed by J. Helperin and S.M. Slonim.
  So, in January 1909, Mary, 21, married William C. Oxman, 25, of St. Paul. They had two daughters and five sons. "We were a very close-knit family in the early years. When Mary and Bill Oxman were married, there were more than 300 guests, and I remember my parents wanted the best. The wedding was held in the old Masonic hall, later the Orpheum theater building. Music, waiters, big dinner, and all the trimmings including the tzatski Russian dancing." (Mary's brother, Abram "Abe" Oreck, in the Oreck Family news, October 1959)
  "Mary was very affectionate. When visiting, she would kiss each person, coming and going. The children would line up and happily wait for their kisses at the door. Mary and Vallian's mother, Sarah Bright Coll (Israel and Lena's daughter) were the closest cousins, being born 10 days apart. They oft celebrated their birthdays together". (Vallian Coll Averbook, 6/93) Mary had a deep and abiding love of family and heritage. She kept an astounding scrapbook of family photographs from Russia and America which became the basis for our recorded photographic history. In 1947, she was the first Vice-President of the Oreck Foundation. Mary served for years as Editor of the Oreck Family News, receiving and publishing family news from around the country and world, and helping to tell the family story and preserve its continuity and history. Ethel King Segal (1993) remembered her family living at 1008 E. 6th Street, next door to the Oxmans in Duluth. "Mary was a wonderful and friendly neighbor. She had asthma so would get up early for fresh morning air, often cutting fresh flowers from her garden and leaving a bunch on the Segal front porch." "The Oxmans were lovely, lovely people. Mary was always laughing." (Cera Fink Yaeger, age 92, 1994)
  "They were the pillars in the community and loved by everybody. Bill adored and loved Mary very much all their lives together." (Dorothy Gordon Druskin, a friend, 1993) Mary and Bill were married over 56 years. [Br�derbund WFT European Origins Vol. E1, Ed. 1, Tree #0447, Date of Import: Dec 30, 2003]
