Sophie Cosover Galos
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 24, 1900, Ukraine
Death: May, 1971
New York, USA

Sophie was born Esther Shifra Kossower in Krasilov, Khmelnytska Oblast, the fourth of nine surviving children of Rabbi Pinchos Kossower and Gitel Beitchman Cosover.

Her gravestone lists her year of birth as 1902, but her Social Security application says 1900. It was sometimes difficult for Jewish immigrants to figure out their exact date of birth. The original date was recorded according to the Hebrew calender and they didn't have online date converters back then! I have chosen to use 1900, as Sophie's next younger sibling was born in Feb. 1903.

Sophie immigrated through Ellis Island on Sep. 30, 1921. She was naturalized as a US citizen on Aug. 12, 1931. A milliner by profession, she lived in the Bronx, New York.

Sophie married Max Galos, a dental mechanic, on June 21, 1937 in the Bronx.

Thanks so much to ronzoni for so graciously finding, photographing and uploading the gravestone, and for translating the transcription from Hebrew.
