1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Jonas’ (G1.4) branch was probably the most stable of Jekhuff’s descendants. Jonas was under protection from 1652 to 1687. His son Leib (G1.4.1) was married to a granddaughter of Meyerle Bloch (C2.1) [R1400] and was under protection in Stühlingen from 1674 to 1733, the year he died [R3581]. Leib was a very successful merchant, ranking fifth among all the Stühlingen Jews. He was well respected and was elected treasurer, together with Sandel and Model Weyl in 1691 [R962], despite his propensity for dealing in stolen goods [R54]. In 1692 he was appointed guardian for the underage children of prematurely deceased Schmuli (G1.2.2.1) in a bitter inheritance battle [R1009].

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Leib had two daughters, the wife of Jopperle Guggenheim in Randegg [R750] and the wife of Salomon Weyl, Marumb’s son (S1.2.1.1). His sons were Feistel (G1.4.1.1) and Jonah (G1.4.1.2). Leib was extremely well off and in 1728, five years before his death, he declared bequests for his children and grandchildren [R2175]:

1 1000 fl. to the grandson Meyer Gugenheim (son of Faistel) for his wedding,
2 450 fl. to the younger son Jonah Gugenheimb,
3 350 fl. to the son-in-law Salomon Weyl,
4 450 fl. to the other son-in-law Jopperle Gugenheimb in Randegg, partially as a dowry for the daughter Edel,
5 450 fl. to the older son Feistel as a dowry for another daughter who was expected to marry soon,
6 Provision for the distribution of the estate after his death,
7 200 fl. cash and 200 fl. of claims for the grandson Jonas Guggenheimb in Randegg that the father Jopperle Gugenheimb was not to touch.
