1. Unclear what this last word on the 1st line means

2. May be a diminutive of Leah

3. There are more than 50 towns in several countries in Eastern Europe which has “Ostrow” as a part of its name. The illegible word following “Ostrowetz” may contain an indication as to what specific town is referred to here.

* Illegible
