I appreciate it very much.

RE: Correction to
Jeff, I posted some translations of the Hebrew for some of the BRAVER memorials that you posted.

I'd suggest that you edit some of them and link them via the "relationship" choice. You can cut and paste their FindAGrave numbers and it'll leave a link between husbands and wives, children etc.

Correction to "Libby"
Libby BRAVER was actually Lizzie. Born abt. 1878. She married Sam SOLOMON (not GOLDMAN) in 1899.

More BRAVER data
P.S. I just learned that Abraham's wife's name was probably Sarah KAMINSKY and not Lena (unless he was married twice). Also just learned that Samuel BRAVER was almost definitely my Rita/Rose/Rickel's brother (or half-brother) and born 1866. Samuel married a Mary SUGERMAN.

RE: David Braver
Thanks for that! Do you have any spouses on those 10 Braver children? I've collected a notebook full of random Braver things and you might help me connect some dots and eliminate some possibilities if I had a little more info.

RE: David Braver
My 2x-great grandmother was a BRAVER, though I know less about that line than any others that close in my tree. I kind of search around randomly for BRAVERs every once in awhile and post ones I find to FindAGrave.

Here is almost all that I know:
My 3x-greatgrandfather Abraham BRAVER married Lena. Of Russia, most likely in the area of Belarussian Orla / Orlya (near Grudno and Lida, not the Bialystok/Polish Orla). I expect Abraham and Lena stayed in Europe, but they may have come to America.

Some of this family (children or cousins of Abraham) reportedly lived in Chicago.

Lena would have been born sometime 1825-1855; married Abraham BRAVER.

A relative Samuel BRAVER lived with my 2x-great-grandfather Wolf KIRZNER of Orla and his wife Rickel/Rose BRAVER KIRZNER in 1898 at 298 Broome St. in Manhattan.

Known children of Abraham BRAVER and Lena include:
1. My 2x-great-grandmother Rickel (Rose) BRAVER: born about 1870/1, Russia (prob. near Orla/Lida/Grudno); married Wolf / William KIRSCHNER/KIRZNER; she died 29 Mar. 1898 after childbirth, Manhattan, NY; buried 31 Mar. 1898, Brooklyn, NY, Washington Cemetery.
2. Libby BRAVER: married GOLDMAN; died young of tuberculosis in America. Related somehow to a Solomon GOLDMAN and his son Dr. Ruby GOLDMAN.

Does ANY of that ring a bell? I know its not much.

RE: Riversville Cemetery CT
I was at Riversville doing some photo requests, and just happened to take that picture. I've transferred his memorial page to you.
