This is a snippet from the 1744 Jewish census in Mattersdorf Haus 52. I have summarized what I could glean form the document I would like to know what I got wrong and if I missed anything important. Does it mention an occupation? Here is my summary:
Moshes Schischa was born in Mattersdorf, age 74; wife Rifki, age 70; He inherited the Haus from his father Isac Schischi in 1704.
6 children:
Isac age 40, married
Peer (Beer) age 30, married
--?-- to Eibenitz 17 years
Lene age 25 … widow with no children
Scheindel to Rechnitz married

Thank you!

Not sure what Montour Geld might be. Ohser is probably Asher.
