About Herz Naftali Kohn

From the book "The Oldest Jewish Families in Częstochowa", by Janusz Spyra, translated into English by Andrew Rajcher:

The oldest son, Herz Naftali Kohn (circa 1802–1862), was a properous spice merchant (in 1825). Later, he became the owner of the Lipicze estate in the Wieluń District, north-east of Częstochowa. This occurred through a privilege of the Administrative Council, dated 8/20th February1833, on the strength of a contract dated 8/20th October 1842. Był wielokrotnie członkiem częstochowskiego dozoru bożniczego. He is considered as a leader of Częstochowa “progressives”

Herz Kohn married three times. His first wedding took place in 1817, at the age of eighteen, to Hendla Kohn, whom his ultimately divorced. However, she gave him three sons - Markus, Mojżesz/Michał and Izaak. His second wife (beloved, as indicated in his Will) was Feitsche Chaje (Fanny), nee Markusfeld, from Kraków. She gave him two further sons (Wilhelm and Józef), as well as two daughters (Symcha Estera, who married Dr Kranz, and Rychla). In 1841, he married his third wife, Augusta/Golda of the Wrocław Tiktin family, with whom he had a daughter (Zelma /Szulamis) and a son (Lewka). Herz Kohn also left a Will in 1859, in which he left his estate (above all, the Lipicze estate, the house in Częstochowa, together with a shop and all its fixtures and fittings) at the disposal of his last wife. He warned his older children against challenging this bequest because their education had cost him a great deal. Ultimately, each child was to be given financial security, which was to be the responsibility of the eldest son, Markus. Markus/Mordechaj Kohn (ok. 1819/21–1891) działał początkowo jako arendarz. Był dwukrotnie żonaty: najpierw w 1844 roku z Fajglą Landau Kronenberg (zm.1852), po raz drugi z kuzynką Esterą, corką Ridli/Rozalii Kohn i Adolfa Landaua. Był także członkiem dozoru bożniczego od 1857 roku.
