of Jacob Greenebaum, Sr. (cont.)

HIRSCH (GREENEBAUM) married Miriam (FELSENTHAL), daughter of Jacob ISAAC (FELSENTHAL) and Hannah (BAYER HERZ), and the couple settled in Reipoltskirchen, canton Lauterecken, where during many years he carried on an extensive business in leather and iron; he was besides the owner of several herds of sheep, for which he leased pasturage in Reipoltskirchen and surrounding communities. This couple was known in the whole region as most benevolent and they were beloved therefore by the poor and suffering, the widows and orphans, and were honored and respected by all.

We established without help from others a shelter for poor wandering Jews, of whom there were many at that time. In such manner he earned a name for himself in that region that will not be forgotten, and he is spoken of to this day with greatest reverence.
