Dear fellow genners

I have come accross the following names in my WECHSLER research and
was wondering if anybody could help. It may very well be, that the
names were spelled differently or could be a jiddish form of another
more common name. This may be especially true for the first name ( I
have put possible alternatives in parenthesis). In addition, I would
be happy to know where they could have possibly come from:

RAIBOCH (RIBACH, RAIBACH, REIBACH, REHBOCK) - the name belongs to
Rachele WECHSLER, née RAIBOCH (abt 1806 - 1874 in Trieste)
LITMANN (not much known about the person, other than he married a
WECHSLER >from Trieste.

Thanks for any help or tips.
