Re: Seeking Information on Rabbi Amram b. Yitzchak Yakov BLUM #rabbinic

I'm revisiting this line of research and am seeking assistance in determining whether this Rabbi BLUM was a Kohen.  Please see the full thread for additional information from my original message in 2016 as well as the specific quote below.  I believe the best source would be to find pictures of Rabbi BLUM's matzeva from his ohel in Berettyoujfalu, Hungary or of his descendants who spread throughout Hungary, Israel and elsewhere.  I've been unable to find any pictures online.  For example, his grandson Rabbi Amram BLUM who died in Cleveland, Ohio in 1970 and is apparently buried somewhere in Israel (source Cleveland Jewish News).

Additionally, I would greatly appreciate if anyone has access to the sources below and could look up his entries there for additional detail on his life and ancestry.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

hoping that some subscribers will have access to other sources (e.g.
Hakhme Hungaryah and Hakhme Transilvanyah by Yitshak Yosef Kohen,
Toledot Geonei Hagar and Shem ha-Gedolim me-Erets Hagar by Schwartz, or
Rabbi Blum's own works) that may have more information on them.
