Teschen-Silesia GRONNER #germany

I have been led to believe that many of the German-speaking Jews
in Teschen-Silesia during the latter half of the 19th century
operated successful businesses that supplied equipment for farming
and agriculture.

I have so far not established the profession of my great-grandfather
Hermann GRONNER (born 1862, deported and killed at Terezin in 1942).

A search is underway in the Cieszyn archives but so far inconclusive.
I'd be curious to know whether fellow GerSigs can point to secondary
sources about the Teschen Jewish business community around 1900.
