The last name is
Barcan (Bar-Cohen), or Barkan. Please let me know how I can seek
information, or if you have
access to checking the book.
The name Bar-Kohen,the first name is Eliezer, >from Polotsk (died in 1893) -
the information about this rabbi is in the book NACHLAT AVOT by LEVI
OWCHINSKI, Vilna, 1894, page 25. There are biographical notes and stories. I
do not have thisok at home. It might be in the library. Good luck
