Described as a brandy distillery lessee in 1815 and a leather trader in 1818.

On 01/10/1815 Lazar and Eva, with children Marianna (7 years) and Malke (5 months), arrived in Woysko.

On 29/08/1832 Lazar and Jettel geb. Stein, moved with Rifke from Georgenberg to Ciochowitz.

On 01/10/1834 Lazarus, with his wife Jettel geb. Stein and 4 year old daughter Rifke moved from Ciochowitz back to Georgenberg. The record of this move names Lazarus' father as Abraham. says he was born in 1779 to Loebel Riesenfeld and "Theresie KAZIORUNKE? (MAYER?)"; it does not mention his marriage to Jettel Stein; it is quite possible that the second marriage is that of a different Lazarus. On the other hand, the records of Rachel's and Louise's marriages in the 1840s identify their parents as Lazarus of Georgenberg and Eva geb. Gassmann, so both Lazaruses (if indeed they are two) lived in Georgenberg. Given the information in and the contradictory information in the 1834 movement record, I am inclined to believe that there were two Lazaruses.

A Lazarus Riesenfeld died in Georgenberg in 1845, aged 62 years, so born 1782-83.
