    maybe he is from the “parshuscha” family.
    because the “yid hakodosh” had a son “r’ nchemje” and he had a son “r’ gedalje” SIL of r’ noson leib m’rymanov.

    His sefer is availible on Hebrew books (see link below) from the front page of the sefer which was printed in NY 1897 it sounds that he was actually Rav in Providence RI at that time.

    He also mentions that he was first a Dayan in Slobodko-Kovno and that his Father’s name was Reb Avrohom Aba.

    The Sefer has haskomos of RYE of Kovno, and the Chief Rabbi Yakov Joseph of NY.

    A photo of Rabbi Rabinowitz’s grave is now up at findagrave with the Hebrew readable.

    Articles at the Rhode Island Jewish Historical Association website mention Rabbi Nosson Yehuda Leib Rabinowitz and note that the Rabbi Joseph Saul Rabinowitz in Providence at the same time was his cousin. Rabbi Joseph Saul Rabinowitz died in 1893 and was buried at Moshassuck Cemetery.

    Does anyone know how they were related? Rabbi Joseph Saul Rabinowitz was born in Krekenava, Lithuania and was the son of Chaim Rabinowitz, the grandson of Reb Shlomo of Zeimelis, and the great grandson of Arye Leib Katzenellenpogen of Brest.

    Rabbi Noson Yehuda Leib Rabinowitz or Rabinovitz was my great great grandfather, through his son Henry Zachery Rabinovitz (some disagreement both online and with family if it was witz or vitz), who was the father of my grandmother Nettie Robbins. My research, along with another cousin’s, show that Yoseph Shoel Rabinovitz was his cousin. This information can be found in the Rhode Island Jewish Historical Notes, Volume 4, November, 1965, Number 3, page 249, but this whole section discusses both Rabbis.
