Tombstone Tuesday: Rose Schultz, Montefiore Cemetery, Queens, NY

Reisel daughter of Mosche
MAR. 27, 1895 - APRIL 27, 1962

While Rose Schultz and her husband Meyer Schultz were fairly well documented after their marriage in 1917, I have not been able to find much about Rose Schultz before she married.[1] I also have not located her naturalization papers online nor death records beyond her gravestone.

According to her 1917 marriage certificate, Rose lived at 224 Cherry Street and her parents were Morris and Tilly Lechter Hall. 224 Cherry Street would have been on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I have not located earlier census records for the Morris Hall family. 

The 1920 and 1930 census enumerations indicate Rose arrived in the United States in about 1912.[2] But, while Meyer naturalized in 1928, there is no indicated that Rose did so until the 1940 census - when she was identified as naturalized.[3]

The couple's marriage certificate also notes that Rose was born in Poltava, Russia. Meyer's naturalization in 1928 indicated that Rose was born on 28 March 1895.[4] Her gravestone shows a birth date a day earlier.
