Tombstone Tuesday: Jack and Edna Lerner, Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinelawn NY

Block 24, Maccabee Road, Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinelawn, NY
I wrote a bit about Jack and Edna and their family in the last post. So, this one will be short.

Jack was among at least three children (Jack, Sylvia and Esther) of Froim (Frank) and Rachma (Rose) Lerner who became immigrants in New York City. I have yet to determine where Jack was born (Edna was from Lomza, Poland).[1] Jack's father Froim's last residence in the old country had been in Labun (Lubin) before he left his family behind and immigrated to the USA in 1913.[2] Froim indicated he'd been born in Staro Konstyantiniv.
