Sylvia Sidney AKA Sophia Kosow, granddaughter of Moshe Kosovsky (KOSOWSKI) of Grodno. I am a great-granddaughter of Mordechai son of Israel KOSOVSKY (b. 1851 Kamenka, d. 1935) who lived in LUNNA, Belarus. Mordechai's older brother also lived in Lunna and was named Moshe Kosovsky (KOSOWSKI). Moshe's sons emigrated to the United States sometime at the beginning of the 20th century and they changed their family name to KOSOW. One son was named MOTEL KOSOW (presumably he Americanized his first name). I was told that Motel Kosow was among the founders of the First National Bank of Chicago. Another son was named VICTOR KOSOW. Victor is the father of the actress SYLVIA SIDNEY who passed away in 1999; Sylvia had a son named JACOB ADLER. I am searching info about the descendants of Motel Kosow and of Victor Kosow who reside(d) in the US. Please reply privately. Thanks in advance. Ruth Marcus
