Notes

Businessman, trader, dealer.



The death notice gives his age as 74 years, meaning he was born in 1786-87; however, Friedrich Nothmann gives his dates as 1778-1861). A gravestone in Langendorf cemetery bears his name as an acrostic, and the Lions of Judah associated with the name Loeb. (Despite two visits to the cemetery, I missed the acrostic, and I'm grateful to Pimke for publishing a photo of the gravestone on Wikipedia.)

My 4 x great grandfather.
