The ROSENBERG Family of Lichenroth (Hessen-Nassau) #germany


Ralph Baer <RalphNBaer@...>
 

My fourth great-grandfather Gump (Mordochai in Hebrew) ROSENBERG was born
in an unknown place, but probably Lichenroth (now part of Birstein), on 20
April 1780. He died in Lichenroth on 31 May 1860. His wife was Sara
STRAUSS (28 July 1789 Grosskrotzenburg - 20 December 1878 Lichenroth).

I am, of course, interested in anything about this ROSENBERG family
ancestry.A woman named Hindel ROSENBERG died on 6 December 1830 in
Lichenroth, age 75 (i.e., born about 1755). I suspect that she was Gump's
mother. Gump and Sara had the following known children:

1) Karolina ROSENBERG about 1813 Lichenroth, married 27 May 1834 to Israel
STERN about 1802 Lichenroth, tradesman

2) Selmann ROSENBERG about January 1816 Lichenroth - 30 August 1826
Lichenroth

3. Fanni (Feie) ROSENBERG 1819 Lichenroth - 4 March 1890 Grosskrotzenburg,
married 5 June 1838 Grossrotzenburg to Isaak HIRSCHMANN 8 October 1814
Grosskrotzenburg - 5 December 1893 Grosskrotzenburg, horse trader (my third
great-grandparents)

4) and 5) daughters born between 1817 and 1827 Lichenroth. Gump and Sara
are known to have had two additional daughters, names unknown, who were
under 15 years old in 1832. This comes >from a census for Lichenroth.
Births of females were apparently not recorded in Lichenroth before 1827.

6) Benzion (Benjamin) ROSENBERG 14 August 1827 Lichenroth - 16 May 1872
Lichenroth, cattle trader, community representative, married 15 January
1851 to Rosina ROSENBERG 14 August 1828 Lichenroth

7) Marx (Mordachai) Baer ROSENBERG 7 December 1831 Lichenroth - 4 June 1870
Lichenroth, married 16 January 1856 Lichenroth to Ester (Elka) GERBER 13
July 1837 Gersfeld

I am most interested in identifying daughters #4 and #5 and adding to my
knowledge of all the branches.

The following three men were probably brothers of Gump ROSENBERG. Aaron,
who lived in the same house as Gump almost certainly was. Because Gump's
Hebrew name was Mordochai, the relationship to Mordochai, below, may have
been more distant. However, note that Gump's son Marx was also a
Mordochai, indicating that although Gump's Hebrew name was definitely
Mordochai, the names were considered different.

1) Aaron ROSENBERG about 1777 - 3 April 1833 Lichenroth, community
representative, married to Fanni ... about 1771 - 12 December 1853
Lichenroth. In an 1832 census, this family was listed as consisting of two
men and two women, all over 15 years old, i.e., they had a son and a
daughter born before 1817. Aaron may also have had other children who had
already left home

2) Seligmann ROSENBERG 12 January 1784 - 7 February 1859 Lichenroth,
married to Regina (Rachel) BAUM 16 July 1793

3) Mordochai ROSENBERG about 1789 - 21 February 1857 Lichenroth, community
representative

All that I know about Aaron is that he had a son and a daughter born before
1817. Mordochai was apparently unmarried. Seligmann had at least the
following children:

1) Isaac ROSENBERG 10 December 1816 Lichenroth, tradesman, married
30 August 1847 Radmuehl to Hannchen ADLER about 1827 Hintersteinau

2) Karoline ROSENBERG about 1818 Lichenroth, married 17 November 1841
Fischborn to Isaac LEVI about 1812 Birstein

3) Esther ROSENBERG about 1826 Lichenroth, married 19 March 1849 Birstein
to Josel LEVI about 1819 Birstein

4) Joseph ROSENBERG 3 February 1827 Lichenroth, married 15 February 1858
Lichenroth to Hannchen STERN 9 July 1840 Lichenroth

5) Rosina ROSENBERG 14 August 1828 Lichenroth, married 15 January 1851 to
Benzion (Benjamin) ROSENBERG (Gump's son)

6) Hannchen ROSENBERG 5 April 1832 Lichenroth (probably named after the
Hindel ROSENBERG who died in 1830.)

7) Fanni ROSENBERG 10 May 1835 Lichenroth

I have some further data, and I am interested in adding to it.
