Identified Man

Tree Elieser (Süssel) ben Joseph Gugenheimb is mentioned once in 1728. His designation in the Stühlingen family tree is 'G1.3.3.2'. His father was Joseph (Jossel) ben Meir, Gugenheimb.

Süssel was about 10 or 11 years of age, when his father Josel GH absconded (R2915). He was put into foster care with his uncle Jacob ben Meir and worked for him for at least 14 years. Fortunately, Marum ben Sandel Weyl had a copy of a declaration, written in Hebrew by Jacob, confirming these facts. As a consequence, Jacob had to transfer a claim on a mortgage for 250 fl to Süssel. (Süssel could then use this money to buy himself into protection in Hürben.) .

1728-06-21As can be seen in the proceedings of 14.05.1728, Jacob Gugenheimb of Lenglau claimed 250 florins from Jossel Gugenheimb Alt, former protected Jew here, and a mortgage was inscribed on the house in the Jews´ Lane between Meyer Bloch Alt and clerk Megglin´s barn. Today appears Süssel Guggenheim, son of said Alt Jossel, and declares in the presence of Marumb Weyl that said Jacob Guggenheimb has ceded him, Süssel, this claim as payment for 14 years of work. This cession is proven by a Hebrew document which was translated by Marum Weyl and by a declaration of Marum that Jacob Guggenheimb has written such to him. Thus such cession is officially ratified, but Süssel Guggenheimb will have to respond in case anyone ought to contradict sooner or later.
