Married: Sonya Kotzba Weinstock
Aaron Samuel Yehoshua Weinstock came to Saranac Lake in 1908 seeking a cure for his tuberculosis. He owned the Save-U-Market at 125 River Street, at the corner of River Street and Lake Flower Avenue, and lived above it. He served as vice-president of Temple Emanu-El, a community center and synagogue.
He and his wife, Sarah, had been born in Rezekne, in eastern Latvia, a village of a single street, with fewer than 800 residents.
Aaron's younger brother, Percel, also came to Saranac Lake in 1908, and was diagnosed with tuberculosis, but he didn't stay; he died of the disease in a New York City hospital three years later, while Aaron's disease was arrested.
Aaron suffered a stroke after climbing Ampersand Mountain in 1925; he never recovered, dying of a brain tumor in 1926, leaving Sarah to run the store and raise all her daughters.
