Since my post a few days ago I have received several messages asking for
more ROTHSCHILD information.
This family came >from the town of HELDENBERGEN in Hesse. My branch left
in the 1850's but I have some information on those who remained and a
small amount on other Jewish families there.
Samuel ROTHSCHILD b. Dec. 23, 1814 son of David Abraham ROTHSCHILD and
Hindle ROTHSCHILD (cousins)
he married Amalia (Malge) STRAUSS d. of Marks (Max Mordechai)
and Henrietta STRAUSS.
All their children were born in NYC, Hannah, Max, Minnie, Ralph and Katy.
Samuel ROTHSCHILD had siblings: Blinga (b. 1816) Aron (b. 1817) Michela (b.
1819) Kendel (b. 1820) Matheus (b. 1822) Abraham (b. 1824 m Hanchen ZEFF)
Judle (b. 1826) Betta (b. 1828) Elle (b. 1830) Wolf (b. 1833) Anselm (b.
1835) and Sarah (b. 1839)
Other names >from Heldenbergen are, SCHEUER, SUSKIND, STRAUSS, SPEIR,
WERTHEIMER, SCHATZMANN, GERSON AND HAAS.
Jewish soldiers >from Heldenbergen who died in WWI were: Friedrich HERMANN,
Albert ROTHSCHILD and Adolf WERTHEIMER.
I hope this will be of use to someone.
