    Rabbi Charney was from the town of Sokoly in Poland.

    Before World War I, Rabbi Zeidel received a rabbinical position in London. During the years of the War, when the Germans bombed and destroyed London, Rabbi Zeidel received a rabbinical position in the city of Birmingham, England. Later, Rabbi Zeidel arrived in the U.S. At first he held a rabbinical position in Revere, Massachusetts, near Boston, and later he was given a position in Bayonne, New Jersey, where he served years as the spiritual leader of the United Synagogues. Rabbi Charney was also appointed as a chaplain in the American army.

    From Here:

    The name Zeidel that is mentioned on the Stone is actually how he was called in Europe (I first thaught this was part of his father’s name).
