Delowicz gives his date of birth as 31/12/1853 and lists him as a son of Simon Freund and Selma Staub.
Another researcher, SF, has a record of David's marriage to Recha Daniel in Breslau in 1884 which names his parents as Simon Freund and Selma Staub.
A record exists of the design for a gravestone in Breslau's Cosel Jewish cemetery for a David Freund, son of Jeschaja (a cognate of Simon), born on 23 Kislev 5615 (14/12/1854) and died on 3 Tamuz 5669 (22/06/1909). A note on the design names the widow as Recha Freund.
The one-year discrepancy in his date of birth is not unusual; had it been recorded as 23 Kislev 5614 (24/12/1853) this would have been exactly one week before the date given by Delowicz.
