These girls were first cousins to my mother-in-law.
|Manhattan (New York City) Death Certificates, 1919-1948. Certificate no. 1066 (1921),
FHL Microfilm 2027054, Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sarah Reisner died on January 11, 1921, after having been born on January 9, 1921, to Jacob Reisner and Rebecca (Levitt) Reisner (half-sister to Rose (Levitt) Goldstein). The ONLY reason I knew to look for this death certificate is, again, thanks to the wonderful memory of my mother-in-law, who told me that her sister, Naomi Reisner, had a twin who died as a baby.

Sadly, Naomi Reisner died a couple of weeks before her 17th birthday, in Springfield, Massachusetts.
See Naomi's FindAGrave memorial here. Although her gravestone indicates that she died at 17 years old, she was actually just two weeks shy of her 17th birthday.
And Naomi's stone includes a photograph of her.
Thank you to Find A Grave volunteer, Jeff Kontoff, for all his work in the Jewish Cemeteries of West Springfield, and for giving permission to share this photograph here.
