Subject: Searching COHEN Brothers-OK Bazaars
From: "SANDIROOT" <roadrunr2@...>

I search the descendants of brothers who founded the OK Bazaars stores in
Malech COHEN, wife, Rose
Samuel (Sam) COHEN, wife, Dora
They emigrated to South Africa, probably through Rouxville, OFS, anytime
between 1900-1926, >from Kovno, Lithuania, and possibly spent some time in
London. One of their 7 known siblings, Sarah (COHEN) BLUMENTHAL, is my
grandmother. Their father is Abraham Isaac
They quite possibly knew the family of Rose (COHEN) & Hyman BANUS/BEINASH
(var.) in Lithuania and London - one of their 6 children, Mark BANUS, was
a renowned London accountant.
Thank you for this help.
