Philip and Sarah Mara Cohen

                  Compiled 2003 -2004
                    Revised   June 2004

                         The Family Of Philip And Sarah Mara Cohen

   Philip Cohen 1845-1921. Original name was Kahn although possibly Kahane. (The name was never written
in English, of course, and was pronounced like K A H N, a common Jewish name in Russia.) (There is
absolutely no truth to the ugly rumor that we were related to Ghengis Khan) The Cohen spelling was written as
they came to America. Philip was born in the little shtetl of Popalon, Kovno Gubernia, Lithuania, Russia.
Parents were Bera Kahn and Malke Itah Kahn. Grandfather was Moisha Kahn. Siblings were Chana Etah
Cohen Shapero, Shayne Cohen, Sheva Cohen, Chia Cohen, Laybeh Cohen Miller, The Shaperos settled in
Reading, PA, the Millers in New York City.
   The family moved to Riga for a short time probably to gather their finances and to make arrangements for
the trip to America. They emigrated to the United States in several groups starting in 1898 although we cannot
find any verifiable records at Ellis Island.
  We have one book “ One Hundred Years Of Charleston Jewry” which states: “Philip Cohen, Teacher. Born
11-20-1847 in Popalon, Rus. Left Lebow 6-29-99 to New York on S. S. New York. Wife, Ida, born Popalon.
Children: Max 1-13-79, Mike 8-15-82, Joe 7-12-83, Sam 3-12-85, Sophia Aronstam 2-18-74, Letia Goldstein
6-8-81. Naturalization date 6-12-17 with D. M. Blumberg, Mose Pushkin attest.” Several of these names and
dates are incorrect.
   Philip’s occupation in Russia was as a lumber dealer; in the United States as a Hebrew teacher. Lived in
Popalon; Lithuania; Riga, Latvia; New York City, Charleston, WV. Buried in B’nai Jacob South Hills
Cemetery, Charleston, WV.
  Married Sarah Mara Kahn 1849-1917. Sarah Mara’s parents were Yosha Mordechai and Bessie Kahn. Her
maternal grandparents were Wolf and Bessie Jacobson. Philip and Sarah Mara both had the same last name so
her married name was Sarah Mara Kahn Kahn. Siblings were Bloomie Reva Kahn, Shalom Zalman Kahn.
Shalom emigrated to South Africa. Sarah Mara lived in Popalon; Riga, Latvia; New York City; Charleston,
WV. Also buried in B’nai Jacob South Hills Cemetery, Charleston, WV.
  Philip and Sarah Mara had seven children: Jennie (Shayna Motla), Sophie, Max, Lena (Lilly), Michael,
Joseph and Samuel.
  ( In 2001 I went with our son Chuck and a nephew, Sherwin Goodman, to Lithuania with a Jewish group and
returned to Popalon. The town had been destroyed in WW I and rebuilt so there was nothing to see that existed
when the family was there, but we had hoped to find the names of our ancestors by visiting the old Jewish
cemetery. We took along rubbing material to be able to copy the tombstones.
   We found the cemetery but were bitterly disappointed to find just a large field with only four tombstones
...three of them illegible from corrosion and the other belonging to some other family. Since Jews had been

living in Lithuania since the 13th century, we had hoped to find many, many of our ancestors. We then were told
that Lithuanian peasants had stolen the tombstones over the years to build house foundations and walkways.)
      The family lived on the lower East side of New York on Cherry Street for a while. Jennie remained in New
York, Sophie moved to Detroit. The other five all lived either temporarily or permanently in Charleston, WV.
      As we compiled this Tree we encountered a problem. Some of the family sent in information about the
accomplishments of their children. Many others did not. So we had to make a decision as to whether to print
these or not. But you know how it goes: if you have a committee or a group which does a good job and you
want to publicly thank them, the worst thing you can do is to announce their names and accidentally leave off a
name or two. These people become life long enemies! That’s all we needed, so we took the coward’s way out
and decided to not print any of them. Let us assure you that we have an unusually talented group of youngsters
in the family. Honors with this, honors with that, first place in this, first place in that,,. dancing skills, athletic
skills, everything! We can really be proud of them and we congratulate all of you!

(As written by a group of 8 year olds:

Bubbehs and Zaydes are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people’s.
They don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn’t play
hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the store and have lots of quarters for us. Usually bubbehs are fat,
but not too fat to tie your shoes. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums

Max and Jennie had four boys and five girls and with so many children it was difficult for him to obtain good
housing. One time he found a perfect house and asked the landlord for a lease. They spoke both in English and
Yiddish. “Du host kinder? (You have children?) “the landlord asked. “Nein (No),” Max answered and he got
the lease. On the day that they were moving in, the landlord appeared and excitedly said: “What is this? I
asked you if you had any children and you said: “No”. “No, I didn’t”, Max answered. “You asked me if I had
any children and I said: N INE!”
They didn’t get the house!

   (Max Deutsch had a business selling flavored syrup to soda fountains. One time a company came to him and
   offered him a franchise for a new green colored syrup. This franchise was for the whole city of New York
   (although one other version of this true story says it was for the whole East Coast!). Max investigated it by
   taking some of the syrup home and asking his nine children and their friends to do a taste testing. They were all
   used to sweet tasting soft drinks and none of them liked the strange taste of this syrup. So Max made up his
   mind to turn down the franchise.
      Later the color of the syrup was changed and it eventually became the best known and most popular soft
   drink in the world…Coca Cola!
      Can you imagine what the financial situation of the Deutsch family would have been if he had accepted the
   franchise? Today Rockefeller Center could be Deutsch Center. Basketball teams would be playing their games
   at Deutsch Square Garden!            Oh, well.)

    of time and money trying to find him ...with no results. One lead pointed to South Africa but ended there.)

  went to a cigar store. These stores had a contraption which had a razor inside which was used to cut off the

  end of the cigar like a guillotine. Ella stuck her finger inside and pulled the handle down. Naturally it cut

  through the end of her finger. So she said to her kid brother: “Herman…stick your finger in that hole and pull

  down on that handle. So he did and naturally it cut through the end of his finger too. Then they went home

  and said: “Hey, Mama, look what happened to our fingers!”)

  roads...just paths which go over hills and through valleys and across creeks! There are two drivers per car who

  take turns driving. Chuck was paired with a female driver. At a point well into the race their car wrecked and

  flipped over and over several times! Fortunately neither was hurt badly but his partner quit so he had to drive

  the final12 hours to the finish line by himself. As a prize for finishing he was awarded 30 hours of race track

  driving lessons given by a professional race track driver.

        When his parents heard about it afterwards his mother fainted and they grounded him for a year!) Editor’s

(In our large extended family in Charleston, WV, many of us were raised with Yiddish type nicknames. These

names were what we were called by everyone…even by some of our non-Jewish friends at school: Chatzie,

Fivey, Himey, Maish, Mendy, Noonie, Shudie, Shush (M), Shushie (F), Shlamie, Sissy were some of them. Did

other branches of the family do the same thing?

New Montefiore Cemetery, Long Island.

(Sam Cohen was the youngest and when they got to New York he started school. He spoke no English and was

put in the youngest class where he was larger than all the other children and was embarrassed to be there. So

he quit school and got a job delivering groceries. Over time he started running around with a rough street

gang so his parents stepped in and shipped him to live with the family in St. Louis. He moved to Charleston

with them later on and grew up to be a very successful tailor.)

We hope you enjoy having this Tree. But we have one heccuva complicated family! Was what-cha-ma-callit

married to do-jigger before she married you-know-who? And were those her children? or his children?…or

their children?

I got quite confused at times. In fact I was so mixed up that at one point I had Shirley and I with four kids…one

named Murphy, one named Kelly, one named McCann and one named McCutchen!!

In order to preserve privacy, we have not listed any street addresses or telephone numbers. If you wish to

contact anyone, you may get in touch with Pam Murphy or me (Phil Goldstein).
