About Aaron Hirsh Grinspan

It's fairly certain that he was born in Knyszyn, Bialystok, Bialystok, Russian Empire (now in Poland). His mother's surname, Gulnik, is a name found in Bialystok. His daughter, Minnie, was born in Bialystok. There are a lot of Grinspans from Knyszyn, which is 16 miles NW of Bialystok. There is a record of an Aaron Grinspan the correct age, from Knyszyn, on a Hamburg passenger manifest in 1881.

He died in Seattle but is buried in Saint Joseph, MO.

His gravestone says Aharon Tsvi son of Mordechai. He named his son for his father.

There is a death certificate from Washington State for him, so assuming that this is the same Aaron Grinspan, he died in Seattle, WA. Mother's given name is actually FRUMA, that's the Yiddish spelling for it. Death certificate has it mangled.

His mother maiden's name Ulnick is fairly rare - Spelled Gulnik. Many in Bialystok.
