Aaron Sapiro
I was surprised to see this obituary for Aaron Sapiro, my grandfather, who died in 1959. It appears to have been written then -- apparently not by you. Much of the information is incorrect so I am sorry that it was reprinted on-line.

Aaron Sapiro was not a "labor lawyer." After years as a Farm Cooperative Organizer and representative of cooperatives, he became a criminal attorney. He was also not "linked to Al Capone." Al Capone was indicted at the same time as Aaron Sapiro in Chicago, but they were never associated and Aaron Sapiro did not represent Al Capone.

He sued Henry Ford for libel against HIM, not the "Jewish Religion." Ford printed multiple libelous articles about Aaron Sapiro in Ford's newspaper, the Dearborn Independent. They were vicious attacks against Sapiro because Sapiro was a Jew and Ford was voraciously anti-Semitic.

I would appreciate your correcting the information.

Joseph Smith
Becky,

Thank you for so promptly answering my request to link Joseph with his parents. Are you a descendant? If so, from which son of Joseph and Anne? I descend from older brother Benjamin.

Thank you again,
Debbie Smith Shaffer

RE: Lawrence's
Thank you. They have a lovely marker, which is in exceptionally good shape for its age. I was pleasantly surprised to see how pretty it is.

Hi Becky, I see that you maintain several of the Rall memorials. Would it be ok if I transferred maintenance of Fred Rall's wife, Elizabeth, to you?

RE: Bezaleel Brainerd #7270502
Sorry, no. Lucy Abigail Brainard limited her genealogy to the Brainerd/Brainard lines.
