Maybe I can turn something up regarding him. I'd love to see a picture of the item too, if possible! Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: SharonAlexanderDreyfus Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.kahn/41.75.1.2/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi. I have been trying to find out if there is a connection between my family (Hellwitz) and yours. My greatgrandmother and all her sisters traveled from Steinbach am Glan in the 1880s to join relatives in St. Joseph, MO. Those relatives were butchers; I figured they went to the midwest because of the meat-packing business. Thing is, the Hellwitzes traveled with several young girls of the Kahn family. Now they could have been just friends, but I know that my greatgreatgrandfather, the father of those 5 Hellwitz sisters, previously adopted the 3 children of his previous wife, Marianne daughter of Elias (B. in Siegburg 1800; d. Lechenich ~1854). Those kids (whose names are unfortunately not mentioned) took the last name Kahn, presumably because their deceased father Herz son of Nathan, was a Cohen. This is registered in the synagogue records of Altenkirchen (near Koblenz). Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: SharonAlexanderDreyfus Surnames: Kahn, Hellwitz Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.kahn/5.3/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Don't know if this will help or not, but I just returned from a genealogy search in Steinbach am Glan, which is the Steinbach of your relative, I am guessing. My greatgreatgrandfather Callmann Hellwitz died there. (He was originally from Mehren, near Altenkirchen, near Koblenz.) He had at least five daughters who all immigrated to the Denver, CO/ St. Joseph, MO area in the 1880s from Stainbach. Interestingly, they traveled with members of the Kahn family (Johanna, Amalia, and Gertrud; daughters of Abraham Nicholas Kahn and Sarah Mann; all born between 1874-1880). Here's the thing. Callmann was married once before he married the woman who bore him these 5 girls. He was previously married to Marianne daughter of Elias and adopted the 3 children that she had from her previous marriage to Herz son of Nathan. When it came time to take last names in 1845 (in Altenkirchen), these kids all took the name "Kahn" (presumably because Herz must have been a Cohen). So I wonder if th! e Kahns in Steinbach were related to the Hellwitzes thru Callmann's first marriage. That makes a tough lineage to trace and the stepchildren are never mentioned by name in the Altenkirchen synagogue records.

He and his wife Johanna (Strauss was her maiden name but I am not 100% on that)had 3 daughters. I have some other information on Kahn and Levy names. This is from the IJSL website: Along the west banks of the Mississippi River just south of Baton Rouge lies the small town of Plaquemine. Incorporated in 1838, Plaquemine takes the name of the bayou that used to carry colonial settlers westward on their way towards the area now known as Acadiana. By the mid-nineteenth century, Plaquemine had become one of the most important steamboat landings between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. The traffic through the town, strategically located at the intersection of the bayou and the river, created plenty of entrepreneurial opportunities for those willing to relocate. A small yet devoted group of Jewish immigrants who had arrived in New Orleans from both Alsace and Poland settled in the area in the early 1850s. In the years to come, the river on which these Jews made their homes would prove to be both a blessing and a curse, bringing both prosperity and devastation upon the Jewish community of Plaquemine. The first Jews who arrived in this small town opened small dry goods store along the riverfront. Brothers Samuel and Leopold Kahn emigrated from Alsace and operated a store that by 1860 was worth over $10,000. Another Alsatian immigrant, Leon Meyer, operated a dry goods store and speculated in valuable real estate along the famed River Road. A. Kowalski, a dry goods merchant from Poland, joined forces with his brother Lewis and M. Goldman to open a small merchandise store. In addition to these stores, numerous Jewish peddlers who had recently immigrated to New Orleans sold their goods in Plaquemine. These itinerant businessmen traveled along State Highway 1, stopping in other such emerging towns as Port Allen, Donaldsonville, Napoleonville, and Thibodaux. Once they had acquired a sufficient income to settle down, start a family, and open a brick-and-mortar store, a number did so along Main Street in downtown Plaquemine.
