About the Cohn surname

My mother Ruth Eva Cohn Springer (1909-1985) came from Berlin. She had 4 siblings, Margot, Berthold, Friedel, and Vera. Her father was Robert Cohn (1887-1943). I would like to find out more info about Robert's parents - I just learned his mother was Ernestine Cohn (1864-1919). I believe she was a single parent.
