of Jacob Greenebaum, Sr. (cont.)

Hirsch BENJAMIN (GREENEBAUM) and his wife Barbara had five children, three sons and two daughters; the sons were named Abraham, Nathan and Elias (GREENEBAUM), the daughters, Hendel and Breinle. At the same period, there lived in Rathskirchen, canton Wolfstein, a man by the name of Jacob ISAAC (FELSENTHAL) and his wife Hannah, whose maiden name was HERZ; I believe Jacob was from Idaat, and Hannah from Nahbollenbach, both places near Oberstein an der Nahe. This couple had five children, three sons named Isaac, Herz and Israel FELSENTHAL); the names of the daughters were Sara and Miriam (FELSENTHAL). Hannah died in childbirth, and Jacob ISAAC (FELSENTHAL), at that time in the prime of life was heavily burdened with the care of his children.

He married again, his second wife being Leah WOLF from Essweiler, in the same canton, who was considered an excellent woman by all who knew her, not only on account of her modesty and virtue, but also for her care of her step-children, whom she regarded as her own. To this second marriage, a son and daughter were born; the son was named David the daughter Judith (Jidle) (FELSENTHAL).
