A family with the name Coriell (spelled Coryell by one branch) appears
in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA, in 1702. The progenitor, known only
from a cattle mark of that year, was Abraham. He had, apparently, four
sons: David (1704-1779), Samuel (d. 1760), Abraham, and Emanuel (d.
1748). Three of these sons married Dutch women (Samuel's wife is
unknown).
There is a Jewish family in Amsterdam, with roots in Spain, with
similar names, and which spelled the name Curiel. Has anyone
encountered evidence of a connection?

Some of them were involved as early settlers of New Amsterdam, later known

Hornsteins from Sokolow and Kanczuga #galicia

Raphael Thurm
 

Hello,

I'm researching the family of my great-great-aunt Chana Thurm (born
1889 Kanczuga). She married Avraham Hornstein (born 1885, Sokolow).
Their known children were: Pessel (b. 1909, Kanczuga), Liba (b. 1911,
Sokolow), Ittel (b. 1917, Sokolow), and Rivka (b. 1919, Sokolow). I'm
trying to find out what happened to this family. Is anyone perhaps
researching them?

Thank you in advance,

Raphael Thurm

CORIELL = CURIEL? #general

A family with the name Coriell (spelled Coryell by one branch) appears
in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA, in 1702. The progenitor, known only
from a cattle mark of that year, was Abraham. He had, apparently, four
sons: David (1704-1779), Samuel (d. 1760), Abraham, and Emanuel (d.
1748). Three of these sons married Dutch women (Samuel's wife is
unknown).
There is a Jewish family in Amsterdam, with roots in Spain, with
similar names, and which spelled the name Curiel. Has anyone
encountered evidence of a connection?

Question about falsely accused Jewish doctor #sephardic

Miriam Deutscher <miriamd1@...>
 

Shalom and thank you for admitting me to this group,

I am currently translating a paper that mentions Jews who were falsely
accused of crimes. One is called (Yosef (Joseph?) Carmona/ Karmona/
Caramona) [kuf-aleph-resh-mem-vav-nun-heh in Hebrew]. He was a Jewish doctor
in the Turkish army and was falsely accused of having poisoned two Turkish
soldiers. I have no idea when this happened. I have Googled and Googled with
every possible pronunciation/ spelling I can think of and drawn a blank. If
anyone has heard of him/ his story and/or knows his name in English, I'd
love to hear.

Thank you in advance for your help,
