I am looking for information on my ggrandfather Joseph Israel COHEN born
abt. 1846 in Lomza. D.13th Feb 1912 in Liverpool. Also my ggrandmother
Miriam/Mary BARNETT, b. abt 1843 in possibly Warsaw. D. 23 May 1915 in
Liverpool. The name on her death certificate is Miriam COHEN. The mystery
becomes more interesting when on the 1871 census for England there is
Miriam BARNETT living in Liverpool with Eliza BARNETT born in London abt.
1867 and Morris BARNETT born in Liverpool abt. 1869. There is no Joseph
or husband shown.
The 1881 census has Miriam as Mary and she is COHEN, with Joseph as her
husband. The children are Eliza, Morris, David, Esther, Marks & Rachel
(not Richard). The 1891 Census has 2 children added they are Rebecca my
(grandmother) and Leah. The 1911 census has Joseph and Mary to have been
married 45 years.
Eliza married Moses Abraham FRIEDMAN a Tailor >from Bradford, Yorkshire
Morris married Betsy GREENLEAF
Esther married Macwill ROSENBERG a Tailor >from Birmingham
Marks married Maud De FRECE
Rachel married Wolf LEFF they settled in California
Rebecca married Reuben MYERS and stayed in Liverpool
Leah married Gilbert Henry McCLELLAND, moved to London and then divorced.
If this information rings a bell with anyone or if you can shed any light
onto my BARNETT TO COHEN dilemma I look forward to hearing >from you
Thank you in anticipation
