Avraham son of Yisrael

May his soul be bound in everlasting life
AND DEAR FATHER
DIED APR. 17, 1927
AGE 55 YEARS
REST IN PEACE
In 1906 his wife, Riwke (Rebecca) and children Dwoire (Dora) and Srulek (Irving) arrived via the Noordland from Antwerp. They traveled with Jette (Yetta) and Dwoire (Dora) Meyers, wife and daughter of Myer Myers, who had also been Malzmanns, prior to emigration.
Abraham's son and daughter maintained the glass store at 212 Grand Street after their father's death.
It is interesting that two brothers, Benjamin and Abraham took slightly different last names when they settled in the United States. But I have been assured by their descendants that they were, indeed, brothers.
Abraham Maltman's grave is located in Montefiore Cemetery, Springfield Gardens, Queens, New York, Block 89, Gate 156N, Line 4R, Grave 2.
