David Leiwensohn Levison
Birth: Aug. 1, 1872
Kaunas, Lithuania
Death: Jul. 6, 1941
Point Pleasant Beach
Ocean County
New Jersey, USA

Grandpa came first to the US with his brother-in-law in 1910 and stayed with his sister and her family to find a place his family could live. He only had $20 in his pocket at the time. He then returned to Holland to bring his wife and their 6 children to American and a new life. Grandpa was a tailor in Brooklyn, NY. Then the family moved to Point Pleasant Beach, NJ where Grandpa opened his own tailor shop. This is where their last 3 children were born. I cannot believe what bravery that took!

Those who remained behind and were still living when WWII began were murdered in the Holocaust.

CAUSE OF DEATH: MI (Heart attack)

Thank you so much to SSBJ for fixing my grandpa's photo and putting the frame around it!
