Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Talmud Torahs in Brownsville founded by R' Hirsch BORNFELD #rabbinic

A relative of mine, R' Hirsch BORNFELD (1828 or 1829-24 Oct 1924,
NYC) of Rohatyn, Galicia, son of David Moses BORNFELD and Anna
TANNENBAUM, supposedly founded several Talmud Torahs in Brownsville
after his immigration c. 1905. I would like to locate documentation
supporting this claim or otherwise related to R' Hirsch BORNFELD,
and would appreciate any suggestions. He was Chassidic, but I do
not know whom he followed; possibly, Stratyner, owing to proximity
to Rohatyn. He is buried in a plot of the Society Chaim Berlin at
Mount Judah Cemetery in Queens.

Thanks very much and best regards,
