Lemonick/Ferman Redux

Newly learned family history. Louis Ferman is "Labe," my grandfather who died as a young man in the 1920's. “My father told stories about his uncle--brother of both Izzy and my grandmother, Mary Ferman--who died in a mental hospital in Philadelphia. They referred to him as "Labe," which must have been short for a Yiddish name (Postscript: Labe, a Yiddish version of the Hebrew name Lavi, meaning "lion.")
