About Simon Leb "Löbl" Lipot Riesz Ries

Death date extrapolated from birthdate of Löbl Riesz's grandson Simon Leopold Riesz, b. 1855 to son Heinrich Riesz.

That Simon Leb Riesz was a Rabbi is taken from DIE FAMILIE WOLF by Ernst Wolf 1924 ( (see p. 98a) which states in the alphabetical list of names (under "Nathan Riesz"):

  • Riesz Nathan (98a) geb. 19.VIII.1864, Wien.
  • V.: Heinrich Riesz, Gyönk, Lederhändler, Preßburg, dann Wien (1822-1867); M.: Johanna Mauthner, Kittsee b. Preßburg
  • Gr. V. m.: Moses Mauthner, Kittsee & Gr. M. m.: Karoline Figdor
  • Gr. V. v.: Simon Leb Riesz, Rabbiner Gyönk; Gr. M. v.: Leonore Mauthner, Schwester des Moses Mauthner.

Gyönk is a city in Tolna, an administrative county (comitatus or megye) in present-day Hungary as well as in the former Kingdom of Hungary. It lies in central Hungary, on the west bank of the river Danube. In the early 1700s Hungarian and German families arrived in the village. The school was founded in 1806. In 1882, the Budapest-Pécs-Dombóvár-rail line, which passes through the Kapos Valley, connected the village. (Wikipedia)
