Verkhovsky from Elizavetgrad/Kirovograd, Kherson, Ukraine

Surnames: Verkhovsky, Workoff, Resnitzky, Resnick
I am searching for my great-grandfather Philip Workoff's siblings and cousins. His European last name was something like Verkhovsky/Warshavsky/Warsofsky.

Philip immigrated to Brooklyn from Elizavetgrad/Odessa/Kherson in 1904 with his wife Anna Resnick (Resnitzky). There children were George/John Wyckoff, Lucy Workoff (married name Schlenoff), and Mynette Workoff (married name Brown).

He had relatives in the Bronx; perhaps someone by the name of Julius. I also know that he was related to Louis Workoff, husband of Ella (Spitzer) Workoff. They had four children: Isador/Irving, Fannie/Frances, Abraham, and Seymour.

Philip also had a sister named Jennie who immigrated to California. I think she may have married a man named Samuel Goldberg, but I am not sure.

He also had another sister who immigrated to Argentina.

Finally, Philip's sister Clara (married name Resnick) lived in Brooklyn near him.

Please contact me if you have any information regarding this family.
