|A fact from Schwabacher Brothers appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 22 October 2009 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know||
I would guess that Morton Schwabacher's son-in-law Philip Boren is a descendant of Carson Boren, a member of the Denny Party generally credited with founding Seattle, but I don't have a citation for that. If anyone knows with more certainty, clarification would be appreciated. - Jmabel | Talk 17:31, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Scope and sources
The sources I have used are less than ideal, though they are not bad. Occasionally they disagree on spelling of names, which I've noted in footnotes. In general, they seem better on the people than on the businesses. I do not have exact dates of founding, dissolution, name changes, etc. of the various businesses.
Several people mentioned in this article probably deserve articles of their own. Bailey Gatzert already has one. Nathan Eckstein and his daughter Johanna Eckstein certainly deserve them; others may also, for example Babette Schwabacher Gatzert or some of the Bloch family mentioned in passing. I'd suggest keeping any further biographical data about the three original Schwabacher brothers here, as well as anything about any Schwabacher family businesses that don't merit a 500+ word treatment of their own. If someone goes deeper on other individuals (500+ words), that would probably merit spinning out.
I've chosen not to give the name of every known descendant, nor dates on later figures. Much of this is in the cited sources, if someone wants to go deeper, maybe in a separate article or articles. - Jmabel | Talk 19:24, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
