May his soul be bound in the bonds of the living
DIED NOV. 7, 1930
Here lies
daughter of Asher Zelig
Died 12 Shevat 5706
May her soul be bound in the bonds of the living
DIED DEC. 16, 1945

Jacob and Baglisky seem to have been interred in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association plot at Montefiore Cemetery by virtue of at least two of their two daughters'  marriages to men from Labun. My research indicates that at least one of their daughters (Sylvia/Sadie) was born in Staro Konstyantiniv (a larger community not far from Labun).[1] But Sylvia's husband Max Goldberg was from Labun. Daughter Gussie's husband Samuel Dansky (later changed to Dann) indicated on his World War I Draft Registration Card that he'd been born in Lubin (aka Labun), as well.[2]

I have yet to locate Jacob and Ida's passenger manifests or any naturalization records, but census records indicate that Jacob immigrated in 1902-3 and his wife and children followed in 1907-8.[3] Jacob was a foreman at a shirt factory.

Ida's maiden name was Rothenberg, Ruthenberg of Rudenberg.[4] 

On the 1910 census, Ida reported that she'd born 7 children, of which 5 were still living. I can account for four daughters who were all born in the Russian Empire: Gussie (Dann, born ca. 1890, died 2 August 1972 in Westchester County, NY.), Anna (Bush, b. ca. 1893), Sylvia (Goldberg, b. 10 Oct 1898, d. 7 February 1991, CT), and Pauline. 

I have yet to locate death certificates indexed for Jacob or Ida on FamilySearch, Ancestry or the Italian Genealogy Group's indexes. 

They are buried in block 89, gate 156N, line 5R, graves 1 and 2.
