JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Death of Louis (Eliezar) SLONIMSKY #general


Barbara <bj1friends@...>
 

I am trying to find more information on the death of my great-uncle, Louis aka
Eliezer SLONIMSKY, born about 1886 in or near Slonim, Poland, now Belarus. He
emigrated to the US on April 6, 1902 and died on June 5, 1916. His New York
City death certificate says the cause of death was "between two cars." He was
buried in Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY on June 6, 1916.

Given this early date, one would think that there would be a newspaper account
of his death somewhere. He is said to have worked on trolleys, so it is
possible that the two cars were trolley cars. I have checked the NY Times and
some other papers including the Forward (though I can't read Yiddish) without
luck so far.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
