About Rabbi Jacob Yokel Weil

Rabbi and Landesrabbiner, Bayern; Pulpit in Donauwoerth; He is called Jequil by Fritz Schafferdt in the article appearing in the Stuttgart Sept 1961, Israel. Kultursvereinigung, where it is stated that he is the source of the French line of Weils, due to David Vail who was Rabbi in Metz in 1650. This connection is furthered by Fredericus Ragstat de Weill in 1685 in Metz, who claims descendancy from Juda, the father of R. Jacob Weil (cited in article authored by Rabbi Dr. Neufeld). This theory has Rabbi Jakob married twice, his second wife, Juttele is the daughter of Joel Feibusch of Alesheim near Bingen. Since the associated four sons are all leviim, one must deduce that this Juttele was probably a widow, having been married to a levite in Landau, and bringing these four sons into this marriage. These notions are carried forth from the book, Die Memorien Ascher Levi translated by Moshe Ginzburger in the Dutch book "Hets Geslacht de Weille..." printed in 1936. However, this has proven to be wrong....there is no connection with this Halevi family.
