    Was he related to Rav Baruch Ber?

    You’ll be surprised, but they were brothers-in-law! Reb Boruch Ber wasn’t a Cohen, so the name is just a coincidence, but they were married to sisters, daughters of Reb Avrohom Yitzchok Zimmerman Rav of Krementchuk.
    Reb Naftoli was Mashgiach in Kamenitz, and in America after the war was the head of the Kamenitzer Kollel.
    After his petirah the kolle printed a Sefer Zikaron with a biography called “Zecher Naftoli”, currently unavailable in Hebrewbooks.
    His daughter Rebbetzin Lichtenstein is still alive, her husband Reb Kalman was a Rav in Chelsie Mass.
    Her son Reb Yaakov Yisroel is a Dayan in London.
