This picture was given to me and I was told it was the only picture we have of our great grandfather. He looks quite young in the photo (maybe around 15-16, he was born about 1878). My guess is this was taken around 1895-1900. We have no real papers on when he came to the US except on his census that states he arrived around 1900. It only states he was from ‘Russia’. We would love to find more about him, as he abandoned his wife and 8 children in 1924 and there was never a trace of him after that.
