Philipp Jacob: could be "Sohn" or "Schnef..."
Perhaps you have a link to the documents' "original" internet address? Scaling the image blurs.

I believe it is Bella Weiss - there is no "y" but the loop belongs to the first letter "d" in the word below ("dreizehnten").

Regards from Germany

8/23/2019 9:28 AM Eva's surname is Kaufmann. According to extracts of civil registrations online at, three children (Emile, Albert, and Gustav) were born to Samuel Schwarz and Eva Kaufmann in Dürkheim between 1850 and 1856.
