Joseph Jacobs and Robert L. Kushnick were Executors of the Estate of Abraham Jacobs. If Mr. Kushnick's name is familiar to anyone, please contact me privately. Joseph Jacobs was possibly Abraham's grandson.
Many, many thanks with deep appreciation to all who viewed VM-1734 and
VM-1735. Additional deep appreciation to Carol Rombo Rider who informed me
that she had helped copy the funeral home information for the Jewish History Museum in Baltimore.
I contacted them and have received a copy of the funeral home records. This
information has given the full name of Abraham's mother as Leah Glassman and his father as J. Jacobs.
The funeral was ordered by Mollie Jacobs for the Estate of Abraham I.
Thank you Chuck Weinstein for writing . . . The father's name is almost
certainly Zorach J. Jacobs. Zorach is a Biblical name (a grandson of
Jacob). . .The Death Certificate, as you will recall, showed the father to
be Zorach S-or-J. Jacobs. FYI, Abraham's tombstone shows Avraham Yitzhak
ben Yakov. So we definitely seem to have Zorach Jacob Jacobs.
I can't help wondering if the Jacobs name is because of his being "a
grandson of Jacob" as there were no surnames in Poland/Russia during that
period of time.
My search continues, however. Please let me know privately if the
descendants of Robert L. Kushnick are in your family and if so, how I may
Again, my sincere appreciation to all of you. I hope I missed no one in my
May we all be blessed with A Peaceful, Happy & Healthy New Year!
