  1. [S1005] Dr. Ralph Baer, "E-mail Message from Ralph Baer," e-mail message from e-mail address (Washington, D.C.) to Alex Calzareth, Per Ralph Baer:" The 1815 name adoption list for
    Walldorf in the Rosenthal collection shows two Moses Loebs. 1) Moyses
    Loeb, born 11 August 1772, (Vieh u. Leihhdl.) who became Moses Hirsch
    and was married to Eva. He is clearly too young to be the person you
    are interested in. 2) Moises Loeb, born 28 August 1747, (kl. Hdl)
    who kept the name Moses Loeb the older. His wife is listed as
    Barbara, born 23 December 1750. This seems like the Moses who
    interests you with a second wife. However, I have copied the death
    record from 22 September 1816 of K"obe? (G"ulle), wife of Moses L"ow
    the older, age 69 or 70. The question mark is mine, and the given
    name could easily be K"olle which is very often Karoline. Moses Loeb
    himself appears to be missing in the records.

    I have also seen the original of the 1801 census for Walldorf in the
    Karlsruhe archives (records 77/3034) which shows Mos. L"ow Sn. with a
    total of three members of the family (names not mentioned besides for
    Moses). He was free from Schutz and was cattle and grain trader.". Hereinafter cited as "Ralph Baer E-mail."
