Henry as Henry in Kansas City Newspaper

Thursday, July 7, 1921  

Paper: Kansas City Star (Kansas City, MO)-

obtained on  Genealogybank 
An apparent reference to Henry Goldenstein in the Kansas City Star refers to him as "Harry." Given when and where Henry Goldenstein died, this has to be the same person. I took my own advice and left the first name out of my search, which was how this reference was located.

My searches on Genealogybank  aren't yet complete for local references to this incident, but this appears to have been the only "immediate" mention of it in a local newspaper.

It is easy to see how Henry and Harry could be confused, particularly for someone who was not a "local."

Stay tuned.
