    “The rabbi, who was 45 years old and a bachelor, is survived by one sister in Jerusalem and a brother in the United States.”

    From The Galveston Daily News, Mon., 11 Mar 1929 citated in Farshlufen’s link above.

    Very interesting. Whoever wrote this matzeivah was quite eloquent. I wonder what the surviving brother’s last name was.

    Interesting to now that at the time of Rabbi Goodman-Bursetown’s living, the officila rabbi of Adath Emes was Rabbi Berachia Mayerowitz, see here:

    Rabbi Mayerowitz was previuosly Rav in Atlanta, here is the entry for him in the American Jewish Yearbook Vol. V:

    ” Mayerowitz, Berachya, Rabbi of Congregation Ahavath Achim, Atlanta, Ga. Born December, 1865, in Wegger, Government Kovno, Russia. Son of Rabbi David Mayerowitz. Educated in Riga and Tukum, Russia. Rabbinical diploma granted by the Kovno Talmudical College. Held positions in Kansas City, Mo., and Toledo, Ohio. Publication: “The Shield of the Fathers,” a commentary in Hebrew and English on the Ethics of the Fathers. Address: 83 Gilmer, Atlanta, Ga.”
