Jesaya, Schaye Nothmann
The "Nothmann Chronicle", quoting "The Book of Death of the Jewish Families in the District of Tost (Gleiwitz)" gives his date of death as 08/03/1815. In "Die Geschichte der Familie Nothmann" Friedrich Nothmann quotes from his gravestone and equates 27 Tischri 5576 to 8 October 1815. Mike Liebermann and JRI-Poland also give 08/10/1815.
However, 27 Tischri 5576 actually corresponds to Tuesday, October 31, 1815 or the preceding evening. Accepting "zweiten Wochentag" ("second weekday") as an accurate transcription of the gravestone, this would indicate that he died on the Monday evening.
The widely quoted date of 08/10/1815 would have been 4-5 Tischrei. Nevertheless, this is the date given in the Gleiwitz Jewish death records.
His gravestone, seen in the early twentieth century, reportedly bore the inscription:
