Isaac & Charlotte JOSEPHSON - their family background #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

A few day ago, as a reply to Laura O'Brien's request for information on the
PANETH family of Vienna, I wrote about the three JOSEPHSON girls >from Berlin
[daughters of Isaac Josephson and Charlotte Lowenberger]:

Elise/Lieschen, Fanni, and Betti {Babette] and who married into the ALTSCHUL,
SCHWAB and HAMMERSCHLAG families respectively - I am delighted to say I have
now found more about their parents and family:

http://www.herzfeld-online.de/Ludwig.htm

- a chronicle revised on 31 January 1994 by Wolfgang D. HERZFELD in Ahrensburg

JOSEPHSON Isaac [father, Abraham died in Prenzlau] manufacturer of feather
pillows/bolsters, Rosenthaler Str. 45, Berlin born Prenzlau 7 Sept 1791, Burger
Prenzlau 3.2.1813, since 1826 in Berlin as Werkmeister, married in 1822 to
Charlotte LOWENBERGER - four known living children [to the author]. Isaac
obtained his Berlin residency /citizenship on 26.6.1834 [Nr. 1416]

Before living in Berlin, Isaac lived in Brieg und in Prenzlau, where other
relatives of the JOSEPHSON family lived: the family of Herz BERENDT.

The author of this family legend/chronicle writes about these four known
children of Isaac and Charlotte:

Betty (21 Feb 1827), nb I had birth year 1825 - married Sam. HAMMERSCHLAG
Henriette (16. Jan 1829)
Albert (9 Oct 1830)
Nanette (30 Aug 1832)

To this list, we can add:

Elise {ALTSCHUL} now estimated to have been probably abt 1823
and Fanni {SCHWAB} born abt 1834

So we have more trees to find, namely of Henriette, Albert and Nanette but they
may well be on GerSIG or perhaps no-one has researched them at all.

I have checked the JGFF for JOSEPHSON >from Berlin and Prenzlau and drawn a
blank. There is a surprising number of entries >from Prenzlau who might also be
relatives including one >from our own Sigger Anne Feder Lee. As it is, we have
many interesting names on the tree already: and here are just some of the
"fruit" I have "picked off" the side-branches I know about:

ALTMANN ALTSCHUL BERENDT BREUER BRULL DUSCHNITZ FURTH HAMMERSCHLAG HIRSCHBLAU
ISEPP JOSEPHSON HAMBURGER KANN KUFFNER LOWENBERGER PANETH SCHWAB SEMLER
SHOSBERG UNGAR.

A wealth of talent and intellect is now spread thoughout the world in their
descendants >from their known origins in Bohemia, Moravia, Vienna and other
areas of the Habsburg Empire as well as Prussia.
