Jona Yeshua Soboloff was possibly my great-grandfather, Isaac Soboloff's brother. They were born in Poltava, Ukraine and then lived in Dniepropetrovsk, Ukraine. His only son was Harry (Hillel) Soboloff, and Isaac also had a Harry Soboloff (Hillel). Hillel was born in 1878 in Russia/Ukraine. No mention of Jona's wife. We don't know anything about him but his name. We're hoping that his father's name and maybe a date is on this headstone.
The years fit that of my family. Harry, Jona's son was born in 1878. Harry in my family was born in 1886 . Isaac was born in 1848 in Poltava. My guess is that Yona was born around 1858.
I'm not sure that the translation posted on Viewmate is correct. It talks about Avraham. The headstone says J. Soboloff, meaning Jona Yeshua Soboloff. Section S, Location S, Line 1, Plot 16. He was the father of Harry Soboloff. Is Avraham mentioned . . . in what context.
