Translation help: "Pferdegoepel" #germany

Gerrard Salomon <jerrysalomon@...>
 

Dear gersig, The subject item is any machine (in this
case most probably a wire drawing machine) which uses
horse power where the horse or horses trot in a circle
by means of a beam attached on one end to the machine
and the other to the yoke. It is still very prevalent
in tropical countries for crushing sugarcane.

JAKOB WIMPFHEIMER, Philadelphia.......and his daughter. #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

Louise WIMPFHEIMER was born in Philadelphia, USA on 25 Oct. 1852, daughter of
Jakob (or Jacob) WIMPFHEIMER and his wife, Rosalie, born FRAUENFELD.
Louise married, in Paris, Jacques DREYFUS, bother of the famous
Capt. Alfred DREYFUS.

Do any of the readers of this most helpful forum have access to
birth/naturalisation certificates in Philadelphia?
I am extremely keen to know the date of birth of Louise WIMPFHEIMER's father.

This will help me establish whether he was a brother of my ancestor
Heinrich WIMPFHEIMER (born 1813) of Ichenhausen. Many thanks.

R' David ben Moshe of Novargodok - HURWITZ family #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Several years ago I wrote to this group asking information about
the family of a famous Rav of Novarogodok, Rav David ben Moshe of
Kletsk. During the time I received in the mail copies of the
introduction to his book, Galia Mesechta, and had been contacted by
his direct descendants.

My interest in this rabbinical figure is that according to one
source in our family we are descendant of Rav David's brother. I do
not know this brother's name (neither first nor last-as with David
himself) - I believe that David's son-in-law, Yitzchak ben Chaim
(who published his father-in-law's book), went under the family name
of RABINOWITZ.

My renewed interest in this comes >from my rereading the introduction
of Galia Mesechta and at the bottom, David's son-in-law thanks the
publisher or sponser of the book, a Mordechai HURWITZ, and I seem to
remember that he mentions in the introduction that this HURWITZ
family married into the author's family.

This is especially interesting as I am researching a supposed family
connection between my Novarogodok roots and a HUREWITZ family who
also lived in Novarodok. One member of the family, Rav Isaac Simcha
HUREWITZ. emigrated >from Novargodok to the USA during the latter
part of the 19th century, serving for many years in Hartford, Ct.
If what I presumed above is correct, the mention in the introduction
of Galia Mesechta could be the ABRAMOWITZ (*my family*) - HUREWITZ
connection I've been trying to track down.

To make a long story short:

1. Can anyone confirm that the publisher's family married the family
of the author of Galia Mesechta?

2. Can anyone >from the larger HURWITZ tribe, especially the Hartford
one confirm that there was someone in their family in Novargodok,
who was a wealthy individual and actually published the book and/or
married into the author's family?

Thank you

R' Mordechai Leib of Pinsk/Karlin, mid 1800s #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Some time ago, I did some research on the rabbinical personalities
mentioned in my gguncle's diary (>from Karlin). There, he mentioned
a relative, R' Mordechai of Ruzhin, who may have been in a
rabbinical position in Pinsk or Karlin (during the mid 1800s). In my
research I found that a rabbi of Pinsk (or Karlin) who died in 1866,
by the name of Shmuel Avigdor TOSFA'A had a son-in-law named
Mordechai Leib.

Can anyone tell me who this Mordechai Leib was (family name,
position, etc.) Could this Shmuel TOSFA'A be the connection to the
SCHATKES family that I asked about in a previous message (which I
hope appeared on this group as I had problems sending messages.)

Can anybody suggest another R' Mordechai -"Ruzhiner"- (as noted
in the diary) - who was a well known rabbi (probably in the
Pinsk &/or Karlin area), who was related to my gguncle and my
ggrandmother. Would R' Mordechai Gimple YAFFE (later of Yehud
in Palestine) fit this description?

Thanks for any assistance and to those who answered in the past.
Unfortunately much of my correspondence was lost.
