Surname LOEWEL to WEISS #germany


Lois Sernoff
 

I am trying to find a relationship between the surname LOEWEL and surname
WEISS.

In 1764 Isaac LOEWEL and his wife Jeannette MOYSES had a son whose name was
Judas WEISS.

All known descendants were named WEISS. I do not know if they were German
speakers or French speakers. Two generations later when the WEISS descendants
immigrated to New Orleans, LA their place of birth was listed as Ingweiller, Alsace, France.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
