Thank you for the suggestion on the SSI form!! Really helpful. I did find out a bit more....
On the form he wrote his name as Paul Stanculescu Batisto (reversed in later years)
Also, it shows that his fathers name was written down as Stanculescu Batisto (possibly reversed the order on the form) and his mothers name was Zanfina Stanculescu (not sure on the spelling of her first name, bad copy of form. could be zanfira too).
Also, it seems he came from Sulee (??) Dobrugea which seems to be in eastern Romania, though I have been unable to find the village.
Also, there is the name "Stancut" floating between the line where his mothers name is and where his place of birth is listed, so this could either be another name for his mother or a village name.
If anyone has any information, or if this sounds familiar to them I would love to hear from you.
