Adolf’s sister Rosa (b. 1810) married Josef ("Peppi") Rosenfeld and had twelve children. Victor Rosenfeld, became one of the most famous attorneys in Vienna. Siegfried Rosenfeld (b. 1840) was a comedian known as Roderich Fels. Laura Rosenfeld Henschel (b. 1857, d. 1944 Westerborg) was a subject (and love interest) of the young painter Maurycy Gottlieb (b. 1856, d. 1879), now considered the greatest Jewish artist of his time. One of her grandsons, Hans Sachs became first trumpet with the Israel Philharmonic. Theodor Rosenfeld (b. 1851, d. 1907 Berlin) was successful as a theater owner in New York and Berlin. Theodor’s daughter Eva Marie Rosenfeld (b. 1892 New York, d. 1977 London) was a member of Sigmund Freud’s circle and helped found an experimental school in Vienna with Anna Freud. Eva’s husband and first cousin Valentin ("Valti") Rosenfeld (b. 1886 Vienna, d. 1970 London), the son of Victor Rosenfeld, was also a well-known attorney, had the finest Goethe collection in Vienna and sponsored the Jewish swimming club Hakoah.

  Rosa Kolisch Rosenfeld was known for her witty aphorisms, many of which were published posthumously by her family in Gedanken der Großmutter "ihren Enkel gewidmet" zur Vermählungsfeier der jüngsten Tochter ihrer jüngsten Tochter. The first one is: "Wie man Fehler der Frau liebeswürdig finden kann ist komisch.  Verzeihlich lasse ich gelten."
  Victor Rosenfeld represented Arnold Schoenberg in a dispute with Schoenberg’s neighbor in 1911.  See Berg-Schoenberg Correspondence, pp. 11, 16-17.
