Tombstone Tuesday: Carl Kaimowitz, Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinlawn, New York

Carl Kaimowitz was the eldest son of the couple I profiled last week, Morris and Anna Kaimowitz.


MARCH 31, 1924
JULY 18, 1969

Carl was born in Brooklyn to immigrant parents.[1] David, his younger brother, was born on 30 July 1929.[2] The 1930 census found the family in Brooklyn in an apartment at 3426 41st Street, Long Island City, Queens C0unty, New York.[3]

When Carl was in high school, his family (including his mother's parents, Israel and Molly Marcus) lived in a two-family house at 3056 37th Street in Long Island City.[4]

Carl acquired a Brooklyn license to marry Mildred Shenkman on 18 February 1950.[5] They, likely, married soon after. They had two daughters: Susan and Barbara.

When Carl died suddenly in 1969 at the age of 45, he was vice president of John Thallon and Co., Inc, a meat importing-exporting firm based in Rockville Center, New York.[6]

Carl's grave is located in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association plot in Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinelawn, Nassau County, New York
