Samuel Joseph Stein
His 1812 marriage record notes he was from Danzig.
A peddler in 1812, dry-goods merchant in 1815, 1817 and 1821, a bartender or innkeeper in 1819, 1827, 1828, 1829, 1830 and 1835, a merchant in 1823, 1827, 1835, 1841 and 1846, a timber merchant in 1835, 1837, 1845 and 1847.
His wives Charlotte Aaron and Charlotte Schlesinger are probably the same person, Aaron being her father's name (and hence her patronym), and Schlesinger being the surname he adopted under the decree requiring Jews to take surnames in the early 19th century. Certainly, they appear to have been married to the same person (the fathers of their children had the same name and range of occupations), both of them had children born in Langendorf, but their children's births overlap each other. A footnote in the Italian translation of Edith Stein's autobiography says that Samuel married three times and had 23 children.
