Bernard Weill
 

Several jewish publications list a yahrzeit for a Rav Shabsi Sheftel Weill a=
s a rabbi in Simany, Hungary=20
I just met a young man who told me he is a great great grandson of Rav Sheft=
el Weiss who was a renowned rabbi in Simani, Hungary.=20
Can anyone clarify for me whether in fact there was ever a Rabbi Shabsi Shef=
tel Weill in Simani, Hungary? I am thinking that this was a typo and should h=
ave been Weiss. =20

Thank you

Searching: COHEN/COWAN Family, Buffalo, NY, 1907 - ? #general

Mike Posnick
 

Searching for information about my distant cousins, the Benjamin COHEN/COWAN family
of Buffalo, New York, and their descendants. Benjamin COHEN (b. Russian Empire
ca. 1870) was married to Lillian EHRLICH (b. Russian Empire ca. 1871). They had
11 children: Jennie (b. 1891), Hyman (b. 1893), Rebecca/Rowena "Dollie"
(b. 1895), Anna/Janet (b. 1897), Rose (b. 1899), Nellie (b. 1901),
David (b.1903), Leo (b. 1905), Isidore/Irving (b. 1907), Pearl (b..
1909), and Harold (b. 1912). The three youngest children were born
in Buffalo, the older children in the Russian Empire.

The family migrated to the United States in 1907. The family name
was changed >from COHEN to COWAN between 1910 and 1918. Benjamin
initially worked as a vegetable peddler. He and several of the
children later ran a (wholesale?) fruit market. Benjamin died
between 1930 and 1940; Lillian after 1940. The family resided at 133
Guilford Street in 1910 and moved to 99 Sherman Street sometime
thereafter, where they remained until at least 1940.

Any information would be appreciated. I believe some family members
may still remain in the Buffalo area. Please reply privately.
