This chapter presents a sketch of Benjamin V. Cohen's family background. His father, Moses Cohen, came to Muncie from Indianapolis, where he had lived for seven years since emigrating from Graievo, Poland. With him was his wife, Sarah Ringolsky Cohen. According to local historians, Cohen and his wife were the first Eastern European Jews to arrive in Muncie. Moses and Sarah had five children—three boys and two girls. The youngest, born September 23, 1894, was named Benjamin Victor.
