Rav Eliyahu Horodesky #rabbinic

Rav Juda Gershon PIKHOLZ wrote a lengthy eulogy for Rav Eliyahu
HORODESKY av bet din of Drohobycz who died in 5644 (1883). He refers
to him as kin, and more specifically "shelishi beshelishi im avi." -
that is, his father's second cousin. The eulogy appears an appendix
to his book Hiddushei HaGershunni.

Does anyone have information on how these families might be
connected? Rav Juda Gershon's father was Israel-Yoel ben Pinkas and
Sara-Rivka and his mother was Jutte-Chana, daughter of R' David-Zeev
(Ashkenazy?) of Lwow.
