After looking through paperwork, I dont think the Wolf Kaplan you found is the right one.
He came from Kovno and my family were from Shavel and the two places are not near each other.
I think his wife must be Jenny (although that is the name of his sister in law) but she would not be his next of kin.
So George and Silva would not be their children.
Back to the drawing board.

Who else would have the same exact dob? Is it his handwriting on the petition? same as draft record handwriting? sometimes a corruption of info given....

unfortunately no info on death report of george . gives middle name as Eli.

Re: Wolf Kaplan signatures the same

I compared the wwI and decaration and petition handwriting of the signature and they are the same.

I believe they are the same person unless you can find evidence to the contrary.

maybe an error but try using Jennie instead as wife.census takers get info wherever they can or make it up. For now don't worry abt shavel vs kovel. can sound similar to the uninformed.

btw did you read all the fascinating history of shavel lithuania under a googlesearch?(Siauliai or shavli.)
