29780 Tombstone

11/3/2013 3:52 PM This is my great-grandmother's grave in Lodz Jewish Cemetery (I think).
The information on it could give me clues as to her Hebrew name, her father's name, etc. I am researching the Seidemann (Seidman) family. My grandmother emigrated to NY about 1914.

29779 Translation - Polish

11/3/2013 3:51 PM This is a section of the marriage record of Mowsza Berensztejn/Abramajtys and Leia Czostkow in Suwalki, Poland.

I am trying to read Mowsza's birthplace, which I have outlined in red on the image. "Kleszerowku, Gmina Kadanjskij"? Or perhaps I am misreading it? I can't find any such place on a map of Suwalki or in the JewishGen database.

Thanks for helping me identify this -- it's the only clue I've found to my ancestors' town of origin before they moved to Suwalki in the mid-1830s.
