Rebbetzin Rivka bat R' Nachman Tzvi EPSTEIN ABD of Kolomyya #rabbinic

Well, clicked the wrong button . . .

I'm trying to find out more information about Rivka who was a daughter
of Rabbi Nachman Tzvi EPSTEIN (1740 - 1829), ABD Kolomyya. According to
Meorei Galicia, her first marriage was to R' Menachem Mendel ROSEN.
After he died in Iasi on their way to Eretz Yisrael, she continued on
and married a prominent Sephardic Rabbi.

Who was the Sephardic Rabbi? When did she die and how old was she? For
some reason, I think she is buried is Safed but I can't find the source
so I could be mistaken.

"I wanted to repost this on the new discussion group and in case there are now members who may have additional information . . . please see the below questions.  If indeed this Rebbetzin Rivka was buried in Safed, I think she died before around 1845.  Are there any sources for old Safed burials, either online or in print?"

What new discussion group? This isn't new?

There are no questions below, what are you talking about?

I would also be interested if anyone has more information about her
first husband, R' ROSEN. Particularly what year he died and how old he
was. I have his entry >from Meorei Galicia and am trying to determine
how he was related to the luminaries mentioned there--Maharam Lublin,
the Levush, Tosafot Yom Tov, the Bach, Noda b'Yehuda, the Shlah, the
Maharal, and the Rema.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
