What does the title Sexton mean? My brother, who was named for our
paternal grandfather, and I have always been told our grandfather,
Elias KOHN of Cleveland, OH, was an ordained rabbi. I also know he
was a sexton.
How can I verify his being a rabbi? I have his business card and
it simply says Rev. as does the death notice.
He was employed at Temple On The Heights Cleveland, OH and I do have
his burial notice which included people I know nothing of.
I've never had time before to find out much about the paternal side
of my family. I was raised by a single mom. I think understanding
these titles is the missing information I need to start
participating in my own genealogy.
