Thanks Theresa, sounds promising. Can you possibly find info on his parents? Have found several Matelsky's in Ohio. The one I am looking for lived in Cleveland Cuyahoga in 1920 with Aaron and Ida Jeff and was an in-law to one of them.He emigrated to America in 1912 from what was then Russia and was born in Russia approx 1895. He was of Jewish decent. Does this help?
