OK Guys - have another COHEN to uncover: David (no known middle name) COHEN,
b: October 15, 1888, Lithuania, or “Russia”.
Around 1917 he lived at 1525 S. Hamlin Ave, in Chicago, and appears as a
witness on my BLUMENTHAL father’s naturalization form. So THAT act should
mean something in terms of a connection - like my father didn’t just go grab
someone off the sidewalk and induct them into witness-ship, right?
My father’s mother (my grandmother) is a COHEN, and, of course, I wonder if
David is someone from a previously unknown cousin line. So far, I haven’t
The name “Henry J. BARNETT" also appears on the form, but I haven’t yet
begun a search on him.
The correct David COHEN appears on several census, but none of the names in
his family have connectable meaning for me (yet).
Isn’t this fun?
