    It appears that he was a Shochet I’Bodek (Sho”v) in NY, knowing that his brother the Rav Hakolel faught for Kashrus of the Shchitah in America it would be interesting to know if he imigrated to the US on behalf of his brother.

    Does anyone have more biographical information on him?

    it’s interesting to note that there is no English wording on the Matzieve, it says a lot about the character of his family those days.
