R' Mordecai b Abraham TOCKELS #rabbinic


Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

In the 1814 Danzig surname adoption list
<http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/1814.php> is an Amalie TOCKELS,
widow of Nathan Moses. Does anyone know of a connection to Rabbi
Mordecai ben Abraham TOCKELS (Lissa-12 Jun 1743, Berlin)? According
to the Jewish Encyclopedia entry about Rabbi Mordecai TOCKELS, in
Berlin, "he was adopted by a Frau Tockels, whose name he adopted in
gratitude for her kindness." Are any genealogical details known
about this Frau TOCKELS?

Thanks very much and best regards,
