I'm related to the HANOSH family, which is also a rare name. Our Casimir Hanosh(b:28 Feb 1857 near Berlin, Germany; d: 22 July 1905 North Aurora, Il) married Anna Mentzel(b: 27 Jan 1860, d: 7 July 1934). The only thing we know about Casimir's parents is that they were both killed in a horse carriage accident. Casimir was brought up by one family & his brother by another(for some reason). Casimir migrated to the states. There may have been a spelling change along the way from Hannusch to Hanosh.
