Re; Ish Horowitz descent >from Rabbi Benveniste this is given in the
Hebrew book "Shemen HaTov" by Rabbi Shmuel Shmelke ben Tzvi Hirsh
halevi Ish Horowitz of Nicholsburg 1726-1778. It is available for
free download >from Hebrew books:

In fact he traces the yichus much further back than Rabbi Benveniste
of Barcelona.

I am a direct descendant of Rabbi Pinchas Halevi Ish Horowitz of
Krakow who was married to Miriam Beyla bat R. Israel Isserles (sister
of the ReMa).

Can anyone point me to the source for the genealogy of the founder
of the Horowitz dynasty Yeshaya Halevi Horowitz (1465 Horovice -
1517 Prague) back to Pinhas Halevi Benbenisti (b. 1235) in Barcelona?
Everywhere I look you find this tree and the source is "tradition,"
but where is the first mention of this path?
