I found the gravestones in Richfield, MN on Findagrave. Nathan's
father is Yehuda and Sol's father is Moshe.
If you go to Ancestry and Search > Public Member Trees for
Nathan GOTTSTEIN you will find a tree where Nathan and Solomon are
brothers, the father's name is Louis Moses GOTTSTEIN.
The Hebrew name often associated with Louis is Yehuda
The Hebrew name often associated with Moses is Moshe
Nathan's stone has the first given name of his father and Sol's
stone has the second given name of his father. If the person posting
the tree has the correct information, they are indeed brothers.

According to all U.S.
census records available
Nathan and Solomon Gottstein are brothers. When
the family first came to America they
lived in Des
Shortly after the father passed away, the family
moved to Minneapolis,
where they spent the rest of their lives. I found
the cemetery where Nathan,
his wife, and Solomon are buried. I have
communicated with the
cemetery office who brought to my attention that
the tombstones have different
father’s name. I have spent the evening trying
to figure this
out I have used all the usual sites we,
genealogists look at. But I
am missing something Your thoughts,
suggestions, ideas would
The father, Louis Gottstein
died in 1910 in Des Moines
but I was unable to find anything on
his death or a cemetery for him. The mother, Sarah
is on all the census records
as widow and as far as I can tell never
remarried. She is buried in the Minneapolis
family is from Lithuania
and immigrated in 1910.
Thank you for all suggestions
and helpful ideas that you
might be able to give me.
