"from somewhere around Courland/Kurland as he's buried in one of the Kurland plots at Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth Queens"

Sometimes burial societies sold plots to 'anybody', so he may have been from there, and maybe not. One of my cousins is buried in the burial plot of a society for a place nowhere near where he came from. They must have been selling at a good plot when he died.
