Madeleine,

I found reference to an organization called Netherland Israelitisch
Sick Fund. Given that one of the ancestors had been born in Holland,
maybe they were members.

Hope this helps a little.

I found this acronym, N.I.S.F., inscribed above the Peh"Nun on stones
of a husband and wife, buried in the USA. I cannot find a meaningful
expansion, although I'm assuming it must be a sort of "Rest in Peace."
The husband was Sephardic, and had been born in Holland; his wife in
England.
