    I think he was originally from Lomza, see here the name gedlaia Buchbinder mentioned in lomza, which might be his father:

    There was another Rav in NY with the fmaily name Bucbinder, also from Lomza, Reb Moshe Yosef Bucbiner Rav in East NY, bamch”s Divrie Nevieim, see here photo of his Matzieve:

    There was a rabbi Gedalia Buchbinder in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn who passed away in 2007, I assume he was a son or grandson of this Rav.

    YD Miller,
    You are 100% correct!

    Rabbi Jacob Tevye Buchbinder was born on the 5’th of Aug 1878 in Lomza, Podlaskie, Poland to his parents Gedaliah Buchbinder and Mirka Marchewka.

    Rabbi Gedaliah Buchbinder was born on the 22 of Feb 1916 in Bialystok, Podlaskie, Poland to Rabbi Jacob Tevye Buchbinder and Bashi Buchbinder.

    Rabbi Gedaliah Buchbinder died on 12 Feb 2007 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York .

    Here is a very big family tree of his going back to the 1700’s

    YD Miller,

    – (a5)Rabbi Moshe Yosef Buchbinder was most probably a son of Aron Herszk Gimpluwics Buchbinder (on Rabbi Moshe Yosef Buchbinder Mataivoh that you provided it says his father was Reb Aron Tzvi) of Lomza Poland

    – (a4)Aron Herszk Gimpluwics Buchbinder of Lomza father was

    – (a3)Gimpel Buchbinder of Wizna, Podlaskie, Poland father was

    – (a2)Abram Joelowics Buchbinder of Wizna, Podlaskie, Poland father was

    – (a1)Joel Buchbinder of Wizna, Podlaskie, Poland


    Now (b4)Rabbi Jacob Tevye Buchbinder of Lomza, Podlaskie, Poland was a son of

    – (b3)Gedaliah Buchbinder of Lomza, Podlaskie, Poland whos father was

    – (b2)Izrael Joelowics Buchbinder whos father was

    – (b1)Joel Buchbinder of Wizna, Podlaskie, Poland

    So Rabbi Moshe Yosef Buchbinder was Rabbi Jacob Tevye Buchbinder’s second cousin one removed.
