Note: Judaica Bohemiae: Abraham Aaron Oettingen-Lichtenstadt owed his position to his stepfather Jacob Lichtenstadt, whom he did not repay too well. In this connection, Glückel of Hameln (original, Breuer) link: "Reb Jacob presided as parnas of the province until his death, and possessed enormous riches. But finally he came to strife with his stepson Abraham Lichtenstadt, so that toward the close of his life he was shorn of his wealth "The Memoirs of Glückel of Hameln, transl. by Marvin Lowenthal, New York, Schocken Books 1977, p.122". Abraham Aaron carried out his plan of dividing the Land Rabbinate between Rabbi Abraham Broda and his new in-law, Rabbi Wolf Wedeles

Note: Jewishgen Joseph Karpeles: There is a record of a Bohemian Jew who came to America around 1783/84 and who lived in Philadelphia during 1784/85. He was ,20 a son of Wolf Karpeles of Prague. According to a letter that has survived,21 Haym Salomon (l740-85), the famous financier of the American Revolution, engaged Karpeles as his arbiter to represent him in a legal dispute, which was supposed to be decided by a court of arbitration, concerning an inheritance worth 800 ducats. Both parties to the litigation were required to deposit a personal check in the amount of 4,000 ducats to guarantee that they would accept the decision of the court. This event shows the responsibility entrusted to Karpeles and the esteem in which he was patently held
Note: Benjamin may have worked at his father-in-law's textile shop. Feb. 15, 1701 he sold his "partial house" inherited from his father on Maisel Lane to his brother-in-law, Kalman Moses Lichtenstadt (married to the second daughter of Wolf Karpeles Jentl. He used this money to finance his journey to the Holy Land. He also took with him his wife's intended share of the inheritance from her parents, Wolf and Chawa?Any relation to: Abraham ben Jacob Altschul, of Leipa, Bohemia: Printer at Frankfort-on-the-Oder, in 1697 or others on jewishencyclopedia OR Josef Leipen byl synem Abrahama, někdy rabína v České Lípě
Note: Löbl Altshul lived with his maternal grandfather, sworn secretary (sofer neeman) of the Prague Jewish Community Wolf ben Israel Karpeles and grandmother Hayyele. We shall hear about Löbl's father Benjamin Leipen Altschul, his mother Rösel and other Karpeles relatives in connection with the journey of Rabbi Judah Hasid. Löbl was undoubtedly a restless and adventurous boy whom his grandfather had difficulty in handling. Sometime in the late summer of 1705, Löbl plotted to run away from home.. Löbl or Josef Constans as he was called after baptism, was undoubtedly an adventurous and inconstant type who could not stand living in the enclosed and confined Ghetto. His temperament and reduced financial possibilities (his own father deprived him of much of his heritage by unwise decisions in 1700) led him to pursue a career in the military. His inherent business talent predestined him to hold the post of quartermaster, or fourir. This term also became his second surname. Josef Constans Fourir eventually reconciled with his family and is mentioned in the records as a party to the family inheritance proceedings in 1712 and 1717.240) Josef definitely did not harm his former fellow Jews and undoubtedly conducted regular business with them as a quartermaster
Note: The Bohemian Chamber's account book of 1695 carries a record of two high fines paid by Jews; Aaron Ries paid 9,000 Fl. and a Moses Kallmens Lichtenstadt 8,000 Fl. Both penalties were charged for transgressions committed in 1693. (AMP, rkp. No. 4821: Liber Judaeorum albus (hereafter LJA) VIII, pp.222-224)) and (SÚA KK (ÈK), No. 718 (1494): Copey-Raittung pro Anno 1695: f 31b, 32a.(23. Junii?))
