13353 Do you recognize?

8/26/2009 A photo of my maternal g-f, Edward Hempel, who disappeared shortly after this photo was taken. He was probably known by a different name in his native country of Poland/Russia and also wherever he went after leaving Philadelphia. He came to the US abt. 1912 and was born 1887-8. I realize profiles are difficult to ID, but this is the only photo I have ever seen of him and would be forever grateful for any leads. View the post, there are no responses

11580 Tombstone

8/26/2009 I need any and all information pertaining to CHOPINSKY. Ideally, I would like to contact a descendant.

What I know so far: The man on the left was identified as William (aka Velvil, Wolf) CHABENSKY, my great-grandfather's brother. The name CHABENSKY goes back to my great-great-great generation, and there is absolutely no other record or mention of CHOPINSKY except this photo.

This spelling where there is an 'O' in the name is very rare in the United States.

I have not been able to read any part of this photo except for the name Rose CHOPINSKY.

Halp! ;p
