A document of Nancy Robins' lists Sarah Myrtle Caplan's father as "Reb Harav Yehiel Beinush HaCohen". "Reb" is sometimes an honorific title, and "Harav" means "the Rabbi". Given that Vilnius was an extremely important center of Jewish culture in the 19th century, Yeheil, being a rabbi there, was likely a well-known and important person.
