Identified Man

Tree David - Eberfingen is mentioned 20 times between 1621 and 1660. He died around 1660. His designation in the Stühlingen family tree is 'Z1'.

A David, Jew in Eberfingen first appears in 1622 [R1545; 03.15.1622] . In 1632 a wife with the name `Regula` was mentioned. Hers is a very unusual name for a Jewess. More likely, the name was `Rachel` or `Ragl` changed to `Regula` by a well-meaning scribe or transcriber. In 1632 [R2765; 06.25.1632] and 1633 [R2791; 01.27.1633] two Jews, David and Henle from `Hemasdorff` (?Hemendorf) with their wifes and children were granted protection. Unfortunately, the protection did not appear to have been very effective. For during the late phases of the Thirty-Year war, David seems to have been killed [R4318; 07.01.1655] and [R3788; 02.06.1660]. .
