    Thank you for posting.

    The rav’s entry in “Otzar HaRabbonim” says he arrived in the US in 1895 (perhaps he went from there straight to Utica?)

    Records show him in Utica at least till 1901. [And then Portland till about 1910 liek you mention].

    They also show him residing until 1944 in New Brunswick. (From then till his passing, who knows?)
