Searching for descendants of my husband's great grandparents.

1. Ida PINKOFSKY (Pincous / Pinkowsky) m. Nathan or Henry FEINBERG.
Their Jewish names were Toby Etta and Nisen. They had 3 children before
he died.

2. Israel DAVIS m. Jeanette (Nechie) Goldsmith and they had 4 children
before she died.

3. Israel and Ida met, married and had children together.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have found all the descendants of Israel and Ida.
I have found almost all the descendants of Israel and Jeanette.

But: the descendants of Ida and first husband Nisen are more elusive.

Third child Joseph FEINBERG DAVIS became a lawyer in NYC.
Joseph married a woman named Blanche. He died of appendicitis abt 1898,
about the time of the birth of his only child, a daughter named Helene
DAVIS.

Blanche remarried Mr. STERN; they may have had a son named Leo STERN,
who lived in the Grosse Pointe, Michigan area. --
Leo may have had a daughter, Debby STERN.
Blanche and Mr. Stern may have had a second son, named Edgar STERN.

Helene Davis assumed her stepfather's surname and was known as
Helene D. STERN.

In 1917, aged 19, Helene married George J. DE PINNA. They had a son,
George L. DE PINNA. When George L was two years old, his father died.
Helene D. Stern De Pinna married an Otto COHEN (who had been married
to her late husband's sister, Marie V. De Pinna).

Otto and first wife, Marie, had two children Adelaide COHEN (1905--?) and
Maree COHEN (1921-1984)

Otto and Helene had a daughter Doris S COHEN (prob b. after 1926).
Doris married a Richard Anderson (1921-1977).
I think they had a child (deduced >from Helene's death notice in the NY
Times.)

Helene's son George L. DE PINNA (b1919) died in 2000.
He had 2 children. The son has an unlisted phone number.
I spoke to a daughter, sent her an email and gave her ways of checking
my legitimacy.
but she refused to even tell me where Blanche or any of the family
was buried!

Does anyone recognize these names or have suggestions on how to find the
son, Geoffrey, Doris Cohen Anderson or Debby Stern?
