About Leopold Löwy

Leopold Lowy and Anna Adler were married in the Slatina synagogue on May 7, 1863. HBMa, Fond 1073 inv. č 455, Folio 16, Line 83 He was 22 and she was 26. The officiant was Rabbi Philip Bondy, the first Rabbi in Bohemia to preach his sermons in Czech rather than in German.The witnesses were Ludvig Hasterlik of Slatina and Salomon Schwager of Kasejovice. (Salomon Schwager was Leopold’s cousin.)

Leopold and Anna first lived in Woseletz (now Oselce), then in Břežan (now Břežany), and finally Horazdowitz (now Horažďovice).

In 1905, Leopold came to New York to visit his son Isadore, who by then was known as Louis Levy. There is an Ellis island record that was incorrectly indexed as being for Leopold "Loney," but it is clearly Leopold Lowy because he stated that he was going to visit L. Lowy who lived at 1346-1st Ave., NY City. That was the same address that Louis Levy used in his May 6, 1902 naturalization petition.
