The Festenstein family originated from Marjiampole/Lithuania. Part of this large clan relocated to Poltava in the Ukraine/Russia mid-19th century, before emigrating to England and South Africa in the late 19th/early 20th century. A few members emigrated to the United States.


Not much is known about Lazare Ahrenson, who was born in Belgium (Prussia) and lived there as a boy. Lazare was married to a woman in America when he met Mary Bank. They eloped to Australia where six of their nine children were born.
