Tombstones can often be useful in family research. Sometimes the names of other family members appear on the stones. I found the website Findagrave.com and this (link) useful in finding most of these photos. This is not an exact science as I’ve found what I believe are errors on three of these memorials.
- Lewis Solomon Block Sr.’s name is misspelled (as Soloman) (quite probably he was named for Solomon Block)
- Lewis Solomon Block Jr.’s name is misspelled (as Soloman)
- Simon Ghertner’s birth year is incorrect (it should be 1882)
Solomon Block and his wife Mary (Levinson) Block were buried at Jewish Rest Cemetery in Camden, Arkansas. There’s no longer a Jewish community in the town but the cemetery, which is fenced and locked, is still maintained by a landscaper; funding for this is provided by a trust fund. I spoke with the landscaper in January 2012 and he’s familiar with Solomon’s memorial stone.
