51 Arrived from South Hamption about 24 Jan 1923 in New York Naturalization petition Schlamovitch, Rita (I807)

54 Arrived US on 25 May 1884 from Hamburg on the SS Polaria
According to the Hamburg emigration lists, he was from Kowno, Russia at age 38.

There are three towns which correspond to Kowno listed in the Jewish Communities database. The geographic locations for the towns are specified from smallest to largest as town, district, guberniya (province) and county.

The most well-known is Kaunas, Lithuania, which was Kovno, Kovno, Kovno, Russian Empire.
The next town listed is now known as Poleskoye, Ukraine but was Khabno, Radmosyl, Kiev, Russian Empire.
The third town is Novi Kovno, Ukraine which was Novo-Kovno, Kherson, Kherson, Russian empire. This town was according to Yad v' Shem founded in 1849 as a Jewish agricultural community by Jews from Kovno. This town was occupied by German troops in 1941 but many of the Jews were able to escape.
All three of these towns are quite a distance from Odessa.
Yet another possible match is the one closest to Odessa, Kishla, (Ciobana) which is only 37.5 miles SSW of Odessa.

We do know that his wife's family came from Odessa, which was Odessa, Odessa, Kherson, Russian Empire, which would argue for either Kishla or Novi-Kovno.

However in other cases, people went back quite a distance to visit family before they left for the US, and that would make the first town also a real possibility since the group administrator for Ken Meyers Y DNA project said that all the other close matches go back to an ancestor in Lithuania.
In this case the proximity to Odessa would not be the key factor, since a return to visit his father and relatives in Kovno would lead to Kovno being on the manifest, but not the town that he had lived in.

60 Based on the 1900 census, where she was living with her daughter Breindl she was born in Russia in Jun of 1843. She therefore can't be Fishel's mother (she was only 4 when he was born), but she is listed as the mother of his sisters, making her his step mother. She also must have out lived Joseph Perchik and remarried someone named Berzril. Since she is only 56, she could have lived past 1910 but may have remarried. She came about 1882, probably about the same time that Fishel and the Goren family came. Hite, Bluma (I1003)

78 Buried with full military honors

Colonel Kirshrot began his military career as an enlisted soldier at Camp Lee, Virginia, in March 1942. He took basic training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and after graduating from Quartermaster Officer Candidate School was commissioned second lieutenant in 1943. During World War II, Colonel Kirshrot served first with the 78th Infantry Division in North Africa, then with General Mark Clark's Fifth Army in Italy. As a platoon leader with the 90th Quartermaster Railhead
Company, his unit landed at Salerno on D-Day, and came ashore amidst intense and sustained enemy bombardment. They continued accompanying ground forces in combat throughout the Po Valley Campaign, and set up forward ration supply points the whole way. Shortly after being promoted to First Lieutenant, Colonel Kirshrot took command of the 90th Quartermaster Railhead Company in Italy.
Over the next three decades Colonel Kirshrot held key command and staff positions with the Sixth Army in Europe, the Eighth Army in Japan, at the Pentagon, and with key Quartermaster agencies at home and abroad. During the Vietnam War, Colonel Kirshrot commanded the Long Binh Depot from May
1971 until May 1972. And the following year ran Headquarters, USAREUR's Logistics Operation Center during its support for the 1973 Middle East War.
Colonel Kirshrot retired at Fort Lee in July 1974, after a long and very productive career. He enjoyed an equally active career in academia afterwards, and has served as a Special Advisor on Arms Control, with ambassadorial status, for Presidents Reagan and Bush. He also continues to support the
Quartermaster Corps as a member of the Quartermaster Foundation.
