The second conflicting name group JAFFE, SINGER, STRAUSE:
My other 3xGG also has conflicting names on records: Bloome STRAUSE and Rivka SINGER. The same Mary GORDON mentioned above married Issac (Israil) JAFFE in 1893.
1. According to NY Marriage Records for Mary GORDON and spouse Issac (Israil) JAFFE in 1893, Issac's mother's name is listed as Bloome STRAUSE.
2. According to NY municipal death record for Issac (Israil) JAFFE in 1907, Issac's mother's name is listed as Rivka SINGER.

I'd just like to add my two cents for what it's worth.  I never believe a death record over another record.  After all, when Isaac's death record was filled out, Isaac was dead and couldn't provide the information.  Probably the person who filled it out had no real reason to know Isaac's mother's name.  Whereas the marriage record was presumably filled out, or the information was given, by Isaac himself.
