About Moses Langermann

from the research of Jochen Martz on the Murnthal valley:

"About 1854 LOEB LANGERMANN sold his part of the Mittermurnthal [glass] factory to his son MORITZ / MOSES LANGERMANN, who was born in Floss, but lived in the city of NUERNBERG (where I live too). Nuernberg is about 100 km west of NEUNBURG V. W. (Neunburg v. W. was always part of the Oberpfalz and old Bavaria rather than the city of NUERNBERG, which was a very old independent city of traders in the heart of Franconia until 1806, when it came to Bavaria). MOSES was the first name used in the jewish community while MORITZ was the name used in the offical world. MOSES/MORITZ LANGERMANN had a store in the middle of the city in the Burggasse 36 where he stored and sold the mirror glass. He is also known as a wool trader. Unfortunately all the buildings in this part of the city of NUERNBERG were destroyed by US-bombers in WW II (what a pity)."

Moses/Moritz Langermann moved from Floss to Fuerth in 1854. At the 5th of February 1855 the city of Fuerth gave him a license for a „Landesproduktenhandlung" (trading with rural products). The trading company was located in Blumenstr. 15 in Fuerth. In 1860 he lived in house number 257 in Fuerth (at this point of time there were no numbers of street names)., then in Schwabacher Strasse 54 (which is still the main shopping street in Fuerth today) and then in Blumenstrasse 15 (a smaller street in the center of Fuerth). In the documents in the 1870s Moses/Moritz L. was called a „wool trader" (although he owned 50% of the glass factories in Murnthal as we know)."

At the 7th of April 1873 Moses/Moritz Langermann moved from Fuerth to Nuernberg. The address where he lived in Nuernberg is Karolinenstrasse 37, which is still the main shopping street in the center of Nuernberg today. The "trading company for wool and glass factory" was definetely in Brunnengasse 36, which is a narrow street. The house might have been from one street to the other, as Karolinenstr. and Brunnengasse are parallel and right next to each other. But I don’t know why it was called glass FACTORY...maybe the ready-polished glass from the Murnthal was just cut and covered with mercury here. In May 1912 he still lived in Nuernberg, but not in the center any more. The address mentioned at this point of time is Pillenreuther Str. 44 / 2. Generally this part of the city is a less good neighbourhood (more a living area for the working class, although this street is one of the best there). It is not mentioned at which date he moved form the center of the city to the southern part. He died in Nuernberg at the 25th of May 1912.
