They say that the cemetery there is a major mess, finding something is downright impossible

This is an important find, and I am thriled by it. Can we get a full direct shot of the text.
Are there any grandchildren of Reb Avrohom alive today ? I recall seeing that the Nizhiner himself had many children not all listed in the Sefer Hatzetzoim.(I believe the Chassidic journal Nachlas Zvi had a note with a listof his children)
Kishinev after WW1 became an important center of Russian chassiduth. the chief rabbi the gaon and posek Rav J.L. Zirelsohn was a Kopust Chabad chassid and said Dach at Shalesh Sudes in his shul.
The Yeshiva in Kishinev which produced rabbonim for Moldavia and Bessarabia was very much under the influence of the Skverer and other Chernobel Chassidic groups.This was a serious yeshiva led by Rav Zirelson.
In addition some of the Twersky's lived there after WW1.
I think Reb Avrohom was a wine merchant.His son Reb Ben Zion was a student in that yeshiva.
