The information entered is incorrect. From several old family trees it appears certain that the mother of the Baligroder Rav (Reb MCA) was Rochel, the daughter of Reb Mendel Rabin of Linsk, father of the Ropschitzer.
She was married to Reb Tzvi Hirch Rimalt, the Chirever Maggid. It is known that they had 2 sons. So it seems that the Baligroder was a son of hers from a different, likely earlier marriage. But it remains a mystery who the father was... We do know that his family name was Rabin like his mother.
