Have a photo of my Great Great Grandfather's tombstone in I believe is the Orthodox Cemetery in Oradea (closed but can be visited) the photo is from the 1931 book produced by the Chevra Kadisha Society of Oradea. I knew of Marcusz (known to us as Marcus) but now am able to add his father Shraga due to its inscription on the tombstone.
Marcusz was married to Rosza who died in NYC in 1911
their son Albert Herskovits was born 1/7/1865 (Married Sarah Weinberg daughter of Wolf Hirsch Weinberg in 1888 NYC)became a very successful Furrier and Builder /Real Estate. Much information is available for Albert Herskovits once he emigrated to NYC, and we know he built a maternity hospital in his hometown. He and Sarah had ten children.
We have no information regarding any siblings of Albert Herskovits, or family members who remained in Grosswardein/Oradea.
