Michael "Baumwoll" (Nickname)Baumwohl
Son of Sam (Zindel) and Ethel Baumwoll
(name misspelled in State records and on tombstone)

Died in Pilgrim State Hospital
Brentwood, LI, NY

Born in Kossow (Galacia) Austria 1890
Came to America at the age of 6 years in 1895 with parents and sisters Yetta and Fannie.

This unfortunate soul spent most of his life in either Pilgrim Psychiatric, Central Islip, or Creedmore State Hospitals. He was listed in the Brentwood LI NY census books, and apparently he was buried by the State of New York which misspelled his name.

His grave is in the Kossower Benevolent Society plot near his cousin Morris Baumwoll. he was the first child of Sam (Zindel) and Ethel Baumwoll one of Fishel Baumwoll's sons and nephew of my grandfather Leazer (Louis).
