    Gerson Hyman was my great great great grandfather. I’m named for my grandfather, who was named for him. One error – Deborah Hyman was Gerson’s wife, not granddaughter. She outlived him by over 50 years. Maiden name was Epestein, and she’s also referred to as Michaela (reflecting her Hebrew name) or Dora in various documents. My father was named for his grandfather who is the Samuel I. Hyman referred to in the obituary shown.
