Notes LES MÉDECINS DE NIEDERNAI Par Micheline GUTMANN site GenAmi – www.genami.org
“Ils ont adopté Sara Canstatt, l’un des enfants du Dr Jacob Nathan Canstatt, médecin né à Mannheim, et de Elisabeth Hyams dont le mariage a eu lieu le 14.02.1793 à la Grande synagogue de Londres.” This is GSM 014/2 (1793). Elizabeth Hyams was the daughter of Hyam. Sarah’s brother Nathan Jacob Canstatt married Hannah Isaacs. According to Roth, Great Synagogue, “11 Another physician who belonged to the congregation at this time was Jacob Canstatt, of Mannheim, who subscribed to the Midrash Phineas in 1735 (as also did Naphtali ben Moses, of the New Synagogue, known as “Dr. Cerf”). The former was probably father or grandfather of the communal physician of 70 years later: see p. 275.”
