Searching for Kisner/Kirzhner in Shepetovka, Ukraine, with links to Kotel in Slavuta

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kisner, Kirzhner, Kotel
My grandfather Louis Kisner (Lev Kirzhner) immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts, USA, in 1914, brought over by his brother Joseph, who arrived in 1911. Another brother, Nathan, also immigrated. In Boston, Louis married Sarah Kotel, who immigrated from Slavuta in 1921. It appears that he already knew her from Ukraine; perhaps they were cousins.

I am searching for information on members of Louis' family who remained in Ukraine--parents, siblings, cousins. In 2000, I located members of my grandmother Sarah's family now living in Israel.

Also, the U.S. census records Louis as saying he was from Volyn (Volhynia). Why would that be so?
