Re: Jack Buhr Kleinman family from Singapore
I can add the following to your Kleinman tree.
1. Newell Joseph Kleinman (b. 1 Jan 1910), clerk, married Alice Daisy De Cruz (b. 26 4 1914) on the 26 Dec 1935, St Joseph's Church, Portuguese Mission. She was the daughter of Albert Walter De Cruz (Singapore) and Winifred Violet Edwards (of Madras). Newell Joseph, being the son of John (Jack?) Behr Kleinman and Rosalie Mildred Scheerder.
2. From the Bidhadari Cemetery Records, Rosalie Mildred Kleinman (Mrs), passed away on the 8 Jan 1951, at the age of 68 (Plot no. 18853). There is also a Mr. J M Kleinman (not sure who this could be, again the transcription could be wrong), passed away on the 5 Dec 1955 (Plot no. 1973) at the age of 47. he died in hospital (General Hospital, Johor). A quick estimate suggest that Rosalie was born in abt.1883, while the unknown J.M. would have been born in abt. 1908.
3. From the Journey to the Straits (The Shepherdson Tree), there is mention of a Benjamin James Kleinman (b. 16 April 1923. d. 15 Sept 1992) married to a Theresa Frances De Silva. She was the daugther of Joseph Frances Cecil De Silva and Appolonia Beatrice Shepherdson.
