  • Notes 
    • (Research):The assignment of the alternate name Olkey (Elkaleh) Meyer Cohen to this Elkaleh is a calculation of elimination. The Dutch will of her grandparents Moses Michael and Catherine [Hachar] is abstracted showing "They leave to their daughter, Olkey Meyer Cohen". Moses and Catherine had no daughter Elkaleh (Olkey) and none of only their daughter Rachel married a Myers-Cohen. There are no other grandchildren by the name of Elkaleh. Therefore, by process of elimination this individual is the "daughter" [should read granddaughter] refered to in the will. This is not a surety but rather a calculated presumption. [8]
