My gf is buried at Old Montefiore Cemetary in Queens. His burial society
is listed as, the Pioneer Progressive Society. An old letter referred to
his "Lodge", would this society be that lodge? Also, does anyone know
about this society, where they were >from etc. My gf, Abraham Kleinman came
from Augustow/Suwalki, we think. He was in the live poultry business onJefferson St., the lower east side & later had a business on Junius St. in
Brooklyn. He died in 1943.
As the story goes, he was a respected man of the community. Maybe one of
you out there may know something of the poultry business at that time.
