Headstone of Nathan Greenberg, born Avraham Nisse Kirzner.
New York City.

Headstone of Nathan Greenberg, whose original name was Avraham Nisse Kirzner. He was a younger brother of Pearl Kirzner Daniels, my great-grandmother.

He is buried in a NYC (probably Queens) cemetery-- where, I don't know.

This was sent to me by one of his granddaughters, a 2nd cousin of my mother whom I never met personally. According to 1874 Nesvizh census, Nathan was born 1868, though according to headstone, he would have been born in 1871 -- I trust the 1874 census.
