Rikva and Leib Ber Mazurewitz had five children: Alter, Jacob,, Yosef, Motl, and Yehudit. Motl was a gymnast and Yosef was in an acting troupe. Yehudit, who was born in 1900 in Mir, married a Perlman and lived in Nieswiez, Poland where she perished in 1941.

Alter and Jacob escaped to America. Alter changed is name to Harry and was Julie Henner great-grandfather. Most of Harry and Jacob's family live in the US. Yosef's children escaped from Mir to Israel where they still reside.
