Kaunas Rav #rabbinic

Dear Group,

In the Hamaggid database there are two entries for rabbis in Kaunas
with the same date:

COHEN Elchanan Rav Kaunas, Lith.
Hamaggid #17 1872

SPEKTOR Yitzchok Elchanan Rabbi Gaon Kaunas, Lith.
Hamaggid #17 1872

Has anyone researched this? Are these the same people or is Rabbi
COHEN someone else. Also is Rabbi SPECTOR the only rabbi in Kovno
between 1880-1896 that decided who became a rabbi?

Sincerely,
Meir Yohanah

Just to add a further twist, the family name was LEVY but I did not see the
Hebrew letters for HaLevy on the headstone, and this word (which looks and
sounds a bit like LEVY) is where the word HaLevy would normally be placed.
I wonder if the mason carved this word in error instead of HaLevy?
Your guess about the mason may well be correct. I have seen worse bloopers by
stonecutters. It seems that he put a superfluous Yod after the Lamed, and doubled
the Vav because that's what Yiddish would require phonetically.

The root of "Levi" does mean accompany/escort; the name of the tribe of Levi
reflects its status in the order of the tribes of the time. Some words derived
from this root mean "funeral" (for obvious reasons) and "loan" (perhaps a little
less so). An Arabic word >from the same root means "flag"; a Syrian general is a
"Liwa" (in English, he is a "flag officer").

As part of a headstone inscription (burial c.1878 in an English orthodox Jewish
cemetery), immediately following the father's Hebrew name (ie the second part of
the patronymic name of the deceased) is the Hebrew word Lammud-Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud .
I am trying to decide if this word is also part of the name of the father or is
part of the other wording.
I have looked up the word in a Hebrew-English dictionary and it appears to mean
accompanying or accompaniment or escort.
Is Lammud-Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud a Hebrew name or has anyone seen this word on a
headstone and if so what is a better translation in this context.
Just to add a further twist, the family name was LEVY but I did not see the

It's not unusual to have the family name appear in this position.
I think that's what this is: a Yiddish phonetic transcription of LEVY.

A while back somebody mentioned a library that allowed online access to ProQuest
Historical to members (membership has a small fee associated). I cannot find
the name for the library and need to utilize this service.
Please respond privately with the name - thank you in advance for your help!
I have book-marked the Godfrey Memorial Library as a library which has a number of
on-line resources available to members, and which has on-line membership
capability. I am not sure if it has pro-quest, but it has a number of other
helpful genealogical resources. I received this information >from this discussion
list, so it may be the library that you were thinking of.
