Re: Use of "ben Avraham" on a headstone #general

Thanks, Sherri. I've been able to confirm that I have the correct birth record. I know he didn't have a good childhood, and he didn't like to talk about his birth family, so it's possible that my family never knew his father's name. (His mother died a few days after he was born from a postpartum infection, his father remarried, and, apparently, he felt rejected by his father & stepmother after they had a son of their own.) His marriage application only adds to the confusion since he listed his parents as Harry & Pearl, which wasn't true. Given the circumstances, it's possible that he avoided any mention of his parents or their actual names.
