He does list some children of Rabbi Yosef (it needs checking whether
all, some or none are >from Frieda; maybe he remarried - but see
1) Yehuda. He was married to a daughter of Rabbi Moshe of Satanow (a
son of R. Naftoli Herz, who was a son of the renowned R' Zvi Hersch
of Halberstadt), who was, incidentally, my 4th great-grandfather.
At least one grandchild adopted the surname of LANDAU. Rabbi K. lists
several other descendants with the following surnames; FRANKEL of
Turnau, WEINBERG of Dukla, LEZER of Turnau & SCHEENBLUM of Rysza.
(These towns are all in Galicia.)
There is no mention of an EPSTEIN. However, I understand that there
is a website devoted to descendants of the Noda Beyehuda and this
may provided more information.
