Dear S. Rotkopf, and All,

 

Firstly love your City and Country. Trust me you are no doubt absolutely correct, but their English was not great.

 

Charna Rywka Lichtenstein (Brones) died on 3rd December 1917 in Warsaw. Charles Victor Stone and that is not on his birth certificate, b .7th February 1918.

 

They would not have been able to go to the funeral, because of the Great War.

 

What should they have called him!

 

On his burial stone it has his Hebrew name. That would probably would make sense.

 

With very kind regards

 

Mark Paul Stone

Charna has nothing to do with Charles!!!

1. Charles is not a jewish name. This Charles surely had also a jewish name

2. Charna was used by russian and polish jews and means BLACK in polish and russian!
