There seems to be a discrepancy in the maternal ancestry of R. Akiba
EGER (1761-1837) of Posen between relatively current versions and
earlier understandings. In particular, a well known 1913 family tree
provides this outline:

R. Meier GINSMANNR. Eliah EGER (father)
R. Loeb EGER (son)
R. Simcha Bunem EGER
R. Akiba EGER "der Altere"
Gitel
R. Akiba EGER (1761-1837)

More recent versions have this lineage:

R. Meier GINSMANNR. Loeb EGER -(brother)- R. Eliah EGER
R. Simcha Bunem EGER
R. Akiba EGER "der Altere"
Gitel
R. Akiba EGER (1761-1837)

As illustrated, one line has Eliah and Loeb as father/son, the other
has them as brothers. Without just referring back to the EGER Family
Association or Geni.com, can anyone provide the basis for whichever
version appears to be correct?

Thank you,
