Searching for Harry and Morris Sokolovsky/Sokoloff/Sokolow in the USA #usa

I am searching for Harry and Morris Sokolovsky/Sokoloff/Sokolow, the two oldest children of Leib/Louis Sokolovsky/Sokoloff/Sokolow and Hannah Sura/Anna Sarah Zabragin.  According to Louis’ 1907 petition for naturalization (New York, State and Federal Naturalization Records, 1794-1943 in Ancestry.com), the family emigrated to the USA in 1889.  I have been unable to find a ship manifest for this family.


Harry, born 1881 in Russia (probably Ukraine area) appears in the 1900 US Census for the family but is not listed as one of the children in the 1907 petition.  I don’t know if this means that he died sometime before 1907 or that he left the household and started his own family.  The family is living on Cook St. in Brooklyn in 1900.  Harry’s occupation is listed as a tailor.  I cannot find Harry after 1900.


Morris, born 1/2/1884 in Russia (probably Ukraine area) appears in the 1900 US Census for the family.  Morris is listed as a tailor and is living with the family on Boerum St. in Brooklyn in the 1905 New York Census and is listed as one of the children in the 1907 petition.  I cannot identify any Morris Sokolow as being part of this family after 1907.


The other siblings: Maxwell, Alexander, Gussie/Gertrude, Bennie/Benjamin, Dorothy, and Joseph have all been found.  They all moved to California. 

The Sokolow name is very common, which has made it difficult to find the right Harry and Morris.
