Benjamin Nathan Grabovsky (Levy)

Does anyone have any information on a Benjamin Nathan Grabovsky, who changed his name to Benjamin Levy when he moved to the US around 1904.

He married Nellie Gewirtzman whom he met in Poland while he was in the Russian army. They moved to the Ukraine (Odesa) and had three children there: Kaye, Herbert and Charlie. Once in the US, they had three more children, Sophie, Belle, and Berte. The Gewirtzman's list Benjamin's DOB as Nov 11, 1874 and DOD as May 31, 1939.

Herbert Levy, not knowing that his father had changed his name, married Margaret Grabovsky...his first cousin. Margaret was a sister to my grandfather Nicholas. Nicholas' father was named Leo(n) Grabovsky and we believe Leo(n) and Benjamin were brothers.
