¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Menckhe conducted many real-estate transactions. He had two sons and three daughters. The oldest daughter married Salomon Bernheimb () around 1677 . Sara married in 1684 . Beyhle, the youngest, found a husband in Alsace . Menckhe’s oldest son, Mayer (), was named after his grandfather. His younger brother, Moysi (), was under protection from about 1684 to 1717; he was married to Kayla Gugenheimb , probably a daughter of Marumb () , and had a married daughter in Dornach . By 1726 he had died, and his widow sold her house to a nephew.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Mayer was under protection from 1696 to 1737. He had one son Menke (), whose alienation and conversion was discussed in chapter 9 above. Menke in turn had three sons: Meyer krumm (bent), (), Moyses () of the aborted betrothal, and Abraham (), who was caught more or less innocently in this same affair. Things settled down for Abraham, and in 1743 he moved with his children to Endingen, where he had inherited the apartments of father and grandfather. By 1747 Abraham had died, and his children sold the property .
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Old Meyerle’s fourth son, Jäggle (), was under protection from 1658 to 1710. In later years, he was exempt from having to pay the tax because of his age . A son David () was under protection from 1687 to 1716. David’s son Meyer () is mentioned only once in Eberfingen .
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 That leaves us with Rebben Salmele () . He clearly is addressed as a rabbi and carries the family name Bloch. He was generally exempt from having to pay protection tax. Salmele, the diminutive form of his first name Salomon , suggests that he was known in Stühlingen already as a child, but there is no explicit mention of his father. Given his chronological position and the order in which he was named in lists , Jäggle () is most likely his father. Of Salmele’s five sons, Isak () , Meyer (), and Mannes ()22 are documented in the records; the paternity for sons Marx () and Jakob () is inferred from indirect evidence. One potential source for the difficulty in tracing Salmele’s family ties lies in his position as rabbi, whereby he is mentioned infrequently and appears rarely in protection lists, having no protection slot to pass on to an offspring.
