About Johanna Weidenthal
The 1934 book “Jewish Communities of Bohemia” provides a little information about “Hostice near Volyn” mentioning the names Karel Weidenthal, Leopold Kohn and Karel Kohn in the list of families that at one time lived in Hostice. Karl Weidenthal married Babette Kohn in Volyne on 20 June 1849 (daughter of Markus Kohn & Karoline Barbier). Birth records provided to me by Julius Müller list a daughter of Karl & Babette Weidenthal, Caroline “Lottie” born in Hostice on 29 June 1835. Lottie married Moses Eshner sometime before 1856. They were living in Philadelphia, PA by 1870. Lottie had a sister, Johanna who may have been the sibling who married I. Weil who took possession of the Weidenthal house in Hostice when Bernard Weidenthal left in 1849 to move to Cleveland, OH.
