My maternal great grandfather was "Rebbe Yechezekiel Ha'Cohanim" [Hyman
COHAN in English]. He and his wife and two sons arrived in America in
1895, and settled in Philadelphia, PA. He died shortly after the birth
of his only daughter (my grandmother). She was born in April 1898
(according to her City of Phila. marriage license). So, we figure that
Rebbe Yechezekiel (Hyman) probably died some time between the summer of
1898 and 1903. It is possible that The Rebbe was a practicing rabbi in
Philly in that era ["the turn of the century"].

Is there/was there an organization or fraternity of rabbis in Philly at
that time? Please advise. Perhaps they have records which might help
me to find more information about my great grandfather.
