Looks like we're on the same track, although I think you gave more detail about a similar situation. As to the last paragraph my grandfathers relatives changed the family name from Kom to Cohn when they immigrated to make it sound (supposedly) less German and yes, Kom turns out to be German after much research. We all thought it was something else for a long time.
I love this page, I rarely "talk" to people who have a clue about things like this. Thanks!
