These were Jacob's parents, according to a great-grandchild. They must have come over, and also adopted their son's Kanne surname. Of course you have the names doubtless used in Russia. If the names mean something in your family or in your experience, perhaps you could tell us if they were probably taken from an old home-town or shtetl, which I suppose is typical. I imagine there is nothing "Jewish" about the "original" names--or am I mistaken? My supposition is that the Kanne name would have more religious significance (although the word may be German or Yiddish).
