Appreciate translation of this death notice of Abraham Grunbaum, born in Geisa. I believe I have the key facts - son of Mannes Grunbaum and Amalie/Malchen Perlstein. There is additional text I can not read and appreciate your help

12/3/2020 11:49 AM Hello Andra,

this obviously isn't a normal death-case: the death was reported by the local head of police - normally they were called in when no natural causes of death were evident.
Maybe the local press covered the case - I would recommend trying a search using (newspapers)

I had just started a translation - you'll find my transcription of (mostly) the handwritten parts below:

Nr. 303
Frankfurt a/Main 7. März 1908

der königliche Polizei-Präsident in
Frankfurt am Main hat mitgeteilt,
daß der Kaufmann Abraham genannt
Adolf Grünbaum,
39 Jahre alt, israelitischer Religion,
wohnhaft in Nürnberg, Fürtherstraße 28
geboren zu Geisa, Verwaltungsbezirk Dermbach,

Sohn der verstorbenen, zuletzt in Geisa wohn-
haft gewesenen Eheleute, des Kaufmannes Magnus
Mannes Grünbaum, und Amalie, geborenen Perlstein,
zu Frankfurt am Main, Kronprinzenstraße 59
am fünften März
des Jahres tausend neunhundertacht
Nachmittags um acht Uhr
tot aufgefunden worden ist. Der Tod ist am
fünften März 1908 Nachmittags zwischen vier und acht Uhr eingetreten
(Vorstehend 20 Druckworte gestrichen)

Regards from Germany
