    I guess, that R’ Yisroel was born 1859 in Devavanya, Hungary, and married Rosa Reisman from Kiralyhelmec.
    His father R’ Chaim Zvi Klein was the Rav in Fegyvernek, Hungary, and then settled in Kisvarda/Kleinvardein, where passed in 1913.
    Can anybody confirm it?

    Reb Yisroel had (has?) a son on Coney Island Rabbi Chaim Avrohom Klien.

    Anshie Kutno was a shul in the Bronx, after Rabbi Klien, Rabbi Shlomo Zalmen Katz was the Rav there< Rabbi Katz was an Uncle for the Sumbethaley Rav.
