  • Jacob Gugenheimer (b: December 17, 1777 Kleinerdlingen, Swabia, Germany d: July 01, 1850 Regensburg, Bavaria) married Regina Gundelfinger (b: February 20, 1784 Kleinerdlingen, d: December 25, 1858 London, England) , and was a prominent merchant and burger in Regensburg. The family home was on an important central square, apparently Regensburg's small Jewish population was not in a separate "ghetto." Stasi has a commemorative china cup/mug for their 25th wedding anniversary with all the children's names listed on a gold leaf tree (see picture of it on the left, click for larger version). Jacob and Regina had ten children

He is listed as the co-author of an 1845 paleontology book on fossilized crustaceans in Bavaria listed at google books - "Über die fossilen langschwänzigen Krebse in den Kalkschiefern von Bayern." The Regensburg record indicates that he emigrated to America where he was in the weaving business.

    • Theresa Gugenheimer (b: November 22, 1818 in Regensburg, Bavaria d: April 30, 1911 in Regensburg, Bavaria) She is buried in the Regensburg Jewish cemetery When she died, the only family member willing to go to Regensburg to deal with the old furniture and "stuff" was our ancestress Charlotte Langermann Thannhauser. That is why we have the portraits, china, and Biedermeier furniture instead of the Erlanger cousins.
