      The following is from: http://kevarim.com/rabbi-avraham-yosef-ash/
      From the NY Herald Tuesday May 10 1887
      “ABRAHAM J. ASH
      Rabbi Abraham Joseph Ash, one of the earliest
      Settlers of Polish Jews in this country, and one of
      the most prominent in American-Jewish history, died
      yesterday at his residence, No. 54 1/2 Ludlow street
      aged sixty-six years. He was born in Senjatisch,
      Poland, came to this country thirty-six years ago,
      and became one of the most remarkable Jews the
      century has produced in this country, being esteemed
      and authority upon ritualistic and dietary
      laws both here and in Europe. Coming to this country
      thirty-six years ago with no capital or friends.
      he was compelled in order to gain a living to
      shoulder a box filled with glass panes, which
      he fitted. Into broken windows. Being always
      studious he diligently applied himself after his
      wearying day’s work of walking the streets In search
      of jobs to the Talmud and other religious books
      within his reach. When he came to this country he
      did not forget the early teaching he had received at
      the old synagogue in his native land, and almost his
      first act after his arrival was to gather a
      few of his countrymen and form a congregation
      to keep alive the ancient Jewish
      faith. Through the Kindness of a friend
      who donated $2000 they incorporated themselves
      under the name of Beth Bamedrash, locating their
      place of worship la Elm street, where Rabbi Ash
      gave his services without reward. Increasing members
      compelled them to move from place to place,
      until they at last secured the Episcopal church at the
      corner of Norfolk and Broome streets, where now a
      large and wealthy congregation worships. For
      many years no one could kill animals for food for
      the Jews in the country without a certificate from
      Rabhi Ash.
      The funeral will take place to-day at two o’clock.
      The Rev. H. P. Mendes, of the Nineteenth Street
      Synagogue, will officiate.”
