Ray is apparently a Jewish abbreviation of Rachael...or so my Jewish friend tells me.

To MarieCeleste
Yes Rachael Penikoff and Mary Angela Rafaeli are indeed the same person.
She was baptised into the Catholic church on the day she married , according to the baptism certiuficate. I believe she may have taken the names Mary Angela for that reason. Also the surname psenichnikow (original birth surname) was omitted in error, this is according to an affidavit (I have the document). I believe this was done about the time she was of pension age. The document is from St.Muredach's Cathedral Ballina Co Mayo.

To Vicci
This is correct, Her correct name was Rachel but she was always known as Ray
I have the marriage certificate and know it is correct as her brother Judah (Jack)
Penikoff and brother-in-law David Waterman were witnesses. Penikoff eventually became Penn later on.

Although I can't find a record of a divorce (they only go up to 1937 and she wouldn't have been able to marry in a catholic church if a divorcee) it's possible the marriage was anulled. Or they may have decided missing presumed dead.
