My great grandmother was Rabbi Nathan Israel Brenner’s sister. We believe he was born in 1861 around Pakruojus, Lithuania. His grandson was David Brenner (the comedian). His father was Shloma Zalman Brenner and his mother was Ruchal; step mother was Sphrintz Bernstein. Rabbi Brenner immigrated to US early 1890s.  They are buried at Har Nebo cemetery, outside Philadelphia. We recently put a Brenner Research group together on Facebook  - I will post your inquiry there to see if anyone has knowledge of his writings. I was told he was absolutely incredible with his knowledge on Torah and Jewish law.
