About Isaak Steinhardt

Y chromosome DNA was probably haplogroup T (T1) as this is the group of his 4th great grandson in the direct paternal line

From Höpfinger, Renate. Die Judengemeinde von Floss, 1684-1942 : die Geschichte einer judischen Landgemeinde in Bayern . Kallmunz Opf. : M. Lassleben, 1993. : genealogy chart S

Before 1814 he was known as Isaak Scheyer. His wife Sara was the daughter of Fradel Lazarus of Sulzbach. In the list of 1799 he is shown as having 2 sons, 5 daughters, a wife Sara, and 3000 fl (tying with Joseph Marum for 2nd richest man in the community, David Pomeisler at 4000 being the richest).

His business as interpreted by a cousin is, "He was very successful as a merchant of goods like wool/leather/cloth; it also says he was a lender, I believe." in German: "auslaend. Handel mit Woole, Tuch, Pferden, ab und zu inlaend. Handel mit Federb, Leder, Tuch;"

He lived in house number 30 (p. 358 in the Hoepfinger book) which was insured for 800 gulden in 1805 but assessed at 1500 in 1806. This house previously belonged to Jesaias Eisig who may have been Isaak's father (one family tree from a descendant shows Isaak as the great grandson of one of FIEFAS brothers who settled Floss originally. According to naming conventions that would make Eisig Fiefas Isaak's grandfather but this is unproven. The house was given to his son Scheyer (Jesaias) Isaak (Steinhardt) in 1813 or 1814. Note the use of the name Jesaias as an alternate to Scheyer.

On several old family trees he is shown as a descendant of the original Eisig Fiefas who settled Floss. Of course that could be on the maternal side.
