A Note by Mark Sassoon:
"The Ketubahs are those of my grandparents. My grandmother was from Baghdadi stock and was a descendant of Hacham Obadiah HaLevi from Baghdad. (I recently looked up a web site containing graves in the Jewish Cemetery of Calcutta and was surprised to note quite a number of descendants of his were buried there).
Unfortunately my grandfather died very young when my father was just 2 years old. My grandmother married a Behar. From what I heard from my father he was a vet for horses."
The first Ketuba was prepared for a marriage that took in Faizabad. It is now in the private collection of Ken Robbins. The bride's father was stationed there recruiting labor to be sent by the British for building the railways in East Africa.
