Notes for Samuel Henry (Heinz) COHEN
From Bill Jessop's charts - Samuel and Eliza had 7 children, Frances m Joseph Ka? dsp, Anne m Simeon Frankel, Sophie, unm, Sarah, unm, Agnes, m Rev Elias Blaubaum, Rose m David Braham.

Some information from Philip Cohen who advises that when Samuel married he used the name Samuel Henry Cohen. This name was also used by him in business and is the name found in the Records of Insolvency where there are two references to him. 2/8659, item 61 and 2/8879, item 3274.

From reading these files it would seem that his principal creditor was his father Henry who was also appointed the Trustee by the other creditors. These insolvencies will be discussed in a separate WORD file. 9
