This is the death record of my 3rd great grandmother's first husband, Mosiek Lewkowicz FELDMAN. Recorded in Lublin in 1825. Akt #50. I am trying to garner as much information as possible.
I can see he died on April 10th, 1825 at the age of 51. His wife's name is Ruchla daughter of Icek. Questions:
1. His occupation is listed as krzymkarz?
2. Are Leybus and Sura his children?
3. What is after his wife's name? Ruchla z Ickowiczow ??? A surname?
4. Is his city of birth listed?
Thanks for your help?
