Identified Man

Tree Benedict in Ofteringen is mentioned 24 times between 1673 and 1697. His designation in the Stühlingen family tree is 'Z2'.

Benedict (probably Baruch) is of uncertain origin. He was under protection from 1673 to 1697 in Ofteringen and later in Horheim. He is often mentioned together with `Jäggele` and `Jonas`. One entry [R4778; 10.03.1680] suggests that he dealt with cattle and horses. There is no information linking him to any of the families. The records contain no linkage information. However, he could possibly be a son of Judah (Judele) ben Moses, also from Ofteringen. .
