I am researching the family of Otto Jonas ROTHSCHILD and his wife Emilie
ROTHSCHILD, nee HESS >from Koeln
The information I have is as follows:
Emilie ROTHSCHILD n=E9e HESS, born 13.11.1862 in Koeln, father Samuel HESS,
mother Josefine HIRSCH
She married 17.6.1886 in Koeln, husband Otto Jonas ROTHSCHILD.
They lived at Volksgartenstr. 62, later Volksgartenstr. 58
Otto ROTHSCHILD (born 1853) was the son of Louis ROTHSCHILD, who was partner
of the bank and merchant house S. and L. ROTHSCHILD.
The ROTHSCHILD family was related to the HESS family. A member of the Hess
family was Moses HESS, the famous early Zionist. Otto ROTHSCHILD succeeded
his father in the company S. and L. ROTHSCHILD. The members of the
ROTHSCHILD family were very active in the Cologne Jewish community and were
sponsors of a number of welfare organisations.
I would be greatfull to anyone that has information on any of the
ROTHSCHILD, HESS and HIRSCH family mentioned.
It is in relation to my great uncle ROWLAND THOMPSON RADEMYER that was
adopted by EMILIE ROTHSCHILD in 1922.
