Hello Mr. Stein 24th November 2020
I noted the word' Kaschan' --being born in Hungary and Hungarian is my mother's tongue --
I wonder if I may interpret it--via a spoken Hungarian lens--like ; was born--in Kachan--szuletett Kassan? Kosice? Kassoa? --near Satoraljaujhely
if the authentic 'handwriting' could be in front of me: I wonder Kaschan--I may perceive: Koszony?--a shorten version of Mezokoszony?
or could be countless other 'perceptions' interpretations.
wishing you success
