This excerpt is from the Yizkor book about the town of Wolbrom in Poland in the section which discusses the town's rabbi, my ancestor, Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi Segal. This excerpt alludes to some sort of controversy over the rabbi's daughter Tovah and the identity of her husband, but does not spell out what's going on nor provide any citations for the controversy. Does anybody know where I can find out more information about this?

The above link is page 57, describing Tzvi Piasker, with some details about his children:
"... For his second son Eliyahu he took for a wife the modest Mrs. Tauba daughter of Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi chief rabbi of Wolbrom, who was in his later days a rabbi in our town, as we will bring further ..."

Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi is on page 67:
