I've just found a new cousin through Ancestry. Her mother Clara Frost was born
and placed for adoption at the charity hospital on Blackwell's Island in NYC
in 1907. Per Clara's birth certificate, her parents were Fannie Frost and
Samuel. Clara was adopted and raised in Minnesota.
My grandmother's maiden name was Pauline Frost and she did have an older sister
Fannie (about 10 years age difference). This Fannie married Samuel Cohen and
they had a son Leon who was my dad's 1st cousin. I haven't been able to find
this Cohen family in any NYC census although I've been told that they lived in
the lower east side. The Frost family immigrated >from Kolomea. Fannie was in NY
by 1907. Pauline arrived circa 1911 along with her mother Pearl. They first
lived in San Francisco (where Pauline married my GF, Sigmund Fireman) and then
moved to NYC by 1913.
I am looking for any information about Pauline and/or Fannie i.e. immigration,
info that will link them as sisters, and anything that may shed more light on
Clara's adoption/confirmation of parentage.
Thank you very much in advance.
