Surnames: Katz, Catz , Beingold, Gutman, Scharf
My great grandfather was Haim/Hirshele/Herman Katz. When he was in the military he went by Ida Catz. He was born in Piatra Neams. His parents were Haim and Brucha Katz. He was, I believe, the youngest of four brothers. The family was in the lumber business, and the parents died young (in Romania). Harry married Bertha Gutman (from Bacu, I believe, parents Buni and Yona), whose parents were also in the lumber business, and moved to the United States around 1901.

The Gutmans were related to the Beingolds, also in the lumber business. My grandfather, who said he ws born in Focsami in 1885, was originally Joseph Beingold, but when his father died in a fire when Joseph was a young child, his mother Devorah married a man named Scharf....also from area (Bacu?) who adopted him. Any information relating to these names would be wonderful as well.
