Further to Rose's suggestion, if you search the name Abram arriving in 1927 
you will find the Franz and Bertha Abram family.  The spelling Abram and 
Abraham are often interchanged.  They are listed as from Russia, so possibly 
they are from the eastern part of Volhynia which remained within Russia 
between the world wars.
