married into it. It was not usually on the first-cousin level, although it

sister to Rabbi Zvi Elimelech Schonfeld.

(Yitta) Leah and R' Yakov Uri had several children together, one of whom
was Frieda. This Frieda married Shmuel Zanvil Kallish, born circa
1840. One of his offspring provides more detail at
