Jakub Lagus in Prag:

cf. extract from memoirs written by Friedrich "Fritz" GUTH (in family archives - not yet fully examined):

"My mother Agnes was the daughter of Jakob Ludwig Lagus and Sophie, née Gibian. I knew my grandfather; he died when I was in grade school. He exported eggs and butter to Germany. After his death, his son Ludwig carried on the business and amassed a considerable fortune. As I mentioned before, the eldest son, Otto, took over Josef Guth's yard goods business. Ferdinand, the youngest, inherited an import business dealing with coffee, fabrics, household items and products from the colonies. The unmarried sisters, Marie and Luise, inherited the house. My mother also had three older sisters: Emma, Julie and Toni."
