What was Nathan's mother's name, assuming it was NOT Mary Stetso? She died in Lithuania in the latter 1800's. Nathan's death certif. information was provide by their son Louis, who was an observant yeshiva graduate. One source gives her name as Stessa Tepper.

4/22/2010 Hello Arnold,

I understand your frustration in not being able to untangle the mystery of the name of Nathan's mother. Yes, it does look like "Mary Stetso", but since that does not seem to be acceptable to you, you might try something else.

So...I have a suggestion. See if you can find the marriage record for Nathan Abrams in Russia. Perhaps that will reveal the correct name of his bride. At least that is another way to search for the information. Also, try to look up the name Stessa Tepper, as you have suggested, to see if she had married Nathan Abrams.

Hope that you are able to get a more satisfactory result....Jo

Correction: Look for the marriage record for ABRAHAM Abrams (not Nathan)for the name of his bride..Jo
4/23/2010 It is MARY and there is no doubt about it. Look the word Myocarditis and you will see that both 'M' are exactly the same. Even the 'M" on the word Merchant is very similar. Besides, as I already told you, several of the lower case 'a' letters have the same aspect (see the word Merchant), that is, the letter 'a' is not fully closed at its upper part.
