¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Jekhuff () was first mentioned in 1613 , although at that time and until 1614 he was simply called “Jacob Jew of Stühlingen.” A relative named Schachmann (), possibly a brother-in-law, appeared on the scene nine years later . We infer their relationship from Schachmann’s estate proceedings , although Schachmann had already died without issue in 1649 . Overall he ranked eighth in terms of commercial activity, while Jekhuff ranked fourth. Schachmann’s wife Kehlen was the daughter of Meyerle (), and when Schachmann died, she married Jäggele Weyl ().
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Jekhuff, apparently, was married to old Marum’s () daughter . Jekhuff had four sons and two daughters; one daughter was married to Lemblin of Tiengen , the other to Judele of Oftringen () . The sons were Josephle (), Schmul (), Marumb (), and Jonas (). Josephle was married to Marla; he was never under protection in Stühlingen but by 1637 seems to have moved to Lengnau. He was killed in 1656, possibly during the unrest associated with the first Villmergen war, and his widow moved temporarily back to Stühlingen . It is likely that he had children, but they are not recorded in Stühlingen documents . However, by 1665 a “Joseph Jew of Lenglau” is mentioned among the heirs of Jekhuff.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Schmul or Schmol, as he was variably called, is also difficult to delineate. We know that he was Jekhuff’s son , but he never appeared on any protection list. During the height of the Thirty Years’ War, Schmol had escaped to Hallau in Switzerland . His wife’s name was possibly Bessle . By 1637 he had died, but his estate continued to be mentioned until 1667 .
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Marumb and Jonas, on the other hand, had a clearly documented and protected presence in Stühlingen, and both were very successful merchants. Marumb was married twice, first to a daughter of Jögglin (probably ), then to Mergam, daughter of Marx Hönlin from Oettingen in Bavaria, who also went by the name Süesskündt – a liaison that would prove costly for Marumb. Marumb had guaranteed a loan of 680 fl. from Hans Conradt Braun, a merchant in Schaffhausen, to Marx Hönlin for merchandise the latter had obtained. When Marx Hönlin was unable to cover the loan, Marumb was left hanging . Jekhuff’s son Marumb died around 1686 , and his widow Mergam lived in great poverty until about 1700 .
