About Leah Rivniker

Leah's death records cite: "The woman, Rappaport Leah, daughter of r' Moshe Kurland, wife of Shmuel." grave neighbors: Tova Kurland and Reisel Wechsler.

In the births record it appears that on June 8th 1908, (line 11 of the hand written records), a son was born to Binyamin and Leah Rivniker. NO name is given, and in place of the name, in parentheses, it says: "died" (plural in hebrew). This would have been Leah's 4th child.

The citation of her original tomb stone appears in Avney Zikaron, 213. Burried in the old cemetary, row 1 tomb 20.

She died on 14.7.1908, which is 7 weeks after the birth of the son referred to as "died in birth". It is likely that there was a complication in the birth, from which she was sick for 7 weeks from which she never recovered.

Dates agree with Yecheskel's records that he became orphan from his mother at the age of 9.
