Lynn,

I'm very interested in your mention of the name Bessie Cohen Schenofsky, as I am from a Cohn family that settled initially in Baltimore, and then in Washington, DC, and I have been told that the Cohn name was originally Chinoffsky, which seems similar to your Schenofsky.  I had initially assumed that your Bessie was born a Cohen, but married a Schenofsky, however, after taking a look at your tree on Ancestry.com, I am not sure where the name Schenofsky came from.  Can you clarify the source of this name?  Where did you find it?
