Tombstone Tuesday: Morris Blatt (1864-1926)

Transcription: Moshe son of Jacob Blatt died on the 29th of Nisan, 5686. May his soul be bound up in the bond of eternal life.

Morris Blatt was a second great grandfather, my paternal grandmother's maternal grandfather. His first wife, Belle (nee Wyman) died in Poland, circa 1892, possibly of a bee sting, Morris and his two daughters, Blanche and Annie, immigrated to America and settled in St. Louis, in approximately 1890. (He and his first wife are said to have been divorced.) Morris married for a second time in 1893. With his second wife, Mollie (nee Kellner), he had two more children - Henry and Pearl.
