Sidney Liebross, the fourth child and second son of Louis and Bertha Liebross, was born 2 February 1890 in Radautz, Austrian Empire (today Radauti, Romania) and came to the United States in 1898 on the Britannic from Liverpool with his mother and seven brothers and sisters. [1] His father had emigrated six months earlier. [2]

He is buried in Mount Lebanon Cemetery, Queens, New York in the Workmen's Circle plot, Block WC, Section D, Line 18, Grave 4.  

Sidney was a men's hat salesman. In about 1926, Sidney married May Weinberg.[3They had no children.

Sidney died young after short illness. His death certificate reports a lung abscess.[4] After Sidney died, May married Leonard Safron. She died in 1974.[5]
