|Historical||Original Hebrew inscription had numerous errors: (1) Year of death incorrectly said 5709, (2) the date (8th) was missing and (3) the surname was written as “Pearlman” instead of “Pearman”. The Hebrew year of death and his surname were corrected when the inscription was renovated in 2019.
An 1891 census lists him as being nine years old. Other documents also suggest that he was born in 1882, which would make him 66, not 68, at the time of his death.
His sisters were all baptized as children. There’s no record of whether he was baptized though.
It appears that Harry was married to Lola Pearman first. She was born in Russia circa 1886. She may have died in London in 1929.
It’s unclear whether he was still married to Ruth at the time of his death. In 1922, while he was living in Hong Kong, she was living in New York. Ruth was a registered nurse. She died in February 1986 in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
