About Jacob Neumann

The 1774 Jewish census of Nemetujvar lists “Jacob Urban” (Jacob son of Urban), who was married to Marianna. The 1782 Jewish census of Nemetujvar also lists Jacob and Marianna, along with their children Isaac, Urban, and Anna.

The 1793 Jewish Census lists “Jacob Neumann” as living with 3 sons. By 1813, Jacob is living with no children, and 3 new Neumans have appeared on the census of Nemetujvar: Isaac, Urban, and Hirschl. These people are Jacob's sons.

On various t'naim documents related to the marriages of Urban's children, Urban's father is identified as Yaakov, and various business documents from the Neumann family make clear that Urban and Isaac worked together on "Brüder Neumann" ("Neumann brothers"). Also, a business document listing the assets of the family business from 1817 lists "bruder Hirschl Neumann" ("brother Hirschl Neumann").

Isaac, Urban, and Hirschl have descendants named Jacob (or Jakab) who was born in in the early 1820s, which also appears to be when Jacob Neuman died, as he was listed on the 1817 census but not the 1822 census.

Several Neumans named daughters Maria in the 1830s, which could mean that Marianna died around then.

A woman named Rebekka Neumann died in Nemetujvar on Sept. 28, 1867 at the age of 105. Her relationship to the family is unclear.
