[according to Kurt Honberg]
Their son, Hans Mayer, was gay and disappeared during the Roem uprising in 1934. Roem was the commander of the SA (stormtroopers). Since he became too powerful for Hitler he had him and many of his cohorts filled for being gay. My cousin Hans must have been caught in the dragnet - he was never heard from again.

[from a paper by Dr. Siegfried Rudolph of Mitwitz about Herman Freund]

Rachel de Sourdis, with a much remarkable genealogic tree. Her grandfather was born in 1821 at Bordeaux, France and came to St. Thomas, an island of the Little Antillies in the Southern Carribean. An anscestor of his it is said, was running away from the Spanish inquisition to France and adopted the name of the cardinal Francis de Sourdis of Bordeaux (1575-1626). St. Thomas had a Jewish governor in 1689 under Danish government and was settled in very early times by Jews, who were expelled from Portugal by religious fanaticism. They cultivated the island and brought the sugar-cane from Madeira. The Portuguise names of her maternal ancestors were Depas, de Castro, de Meza, Sansportia lat suppose, that she is a descendant of those early colonists.

Graduated from University of Chicago. Taught Latin and Greek in
Chicago public schools. Was an editor of Poetry Magazine.

from Robert Hirsch as written by his mother Constance Klauber:

My father's family: Klauber -- About 1847 Simon Klauber, my great uncle left Bohemia (Western Czechoslovakia) - probably also to avoid the army. He landed in New York. He probably knew someone in Lake Mills, Wisconsin so he came there with a pack on his back, probably also with a dime in his pocket like Pa's great grandfather. This story is documented in the book "Jews of Madison." Samuel Klauber couldn't find enough customers in Lake Mills for the merchandise he carried (probably in a wagon) so he moved to the State Capital in Madison in 1851. I believe Samuel's wife Caroline (also from Czechoslovakia) was with him at that time. He eventually built a dry goods store and then a whole block -- called "The Klauber Block" near the State Capital Building. We have pictures of this. In the Wisconsin Historical Society Building in Madison they have many articles on the Klaubers. Until about 1960 or 1970, when they rebuilt the library, Samuel's and Caroline's portraits were hanging in the main room -- "The First Jews of Madison." Samuel was my great uncle. For two years he was the only Jew in Madison.
As Samuel prospered he sent for his brother Sigmund, my grandfather, to help him in the store. When 10 Jewish families had arrived they opened a Synagogue (1856). These men (not the women, I'm afraid) had a procession down the aisle of the Temple carrying the Torah. It was an important occasion in Wisconsin history. (This synagogue has been moved to Edgewater Park and is a National Historic Monument). There were probably 10 other families from other towns. They also established the Jewish cemetery. There are many grave stones that say Klauber and Mack (my grandfather's very prominent niece). When she died, in the 1930's, she left some money to help my brother go to the University of Chicago. He had met her when he was little -- he was traveling in Wisconsin with my parents (probably 1921) and got Chicken Pox -- she let him stay at her house.
My Klauber grandparents later moved to New York where my father, Charles, was born in 1875. He later moved to Chicago and married my mother Eleanor Freund in 1911.

Owned tile business - put roof on the U.S. Supreme Court Building

from Robert Hirsch as written by his mother Constance Klauber:

Back to my Uncle Cheri. . . The tile business was booming. Ignatz and Jack couldn't handle it alone so they told their 13 year old brother to come to Pittsburgh to learn the business. They were building warehouses in all the big new oil towns. Cheri, age 13, went to the wild boom town of Texas City, Texas, with a horse and a pistol to protect their interests during construction. He was pretty big (but not tall) and looked Spanish and probably could act tough. During the late 1920's many great buildings were built with roofs by Federal Cement Tile. These included Chicago's Union Station, many other railroad stations around the country, and the Supreme Court Building in Washington D.C.

[paper by Dr. Siegfried Rudolph of Mitwitz]

Herman Freund was born December 6, 1844 at Mitwitz in the house v. Wurtzburg Str. nb 8, which was bought by his grandfather Hirsch Josef Freund in 1799.

[gitel-descendants.GED]

Served as Colombia's Counsel to the city of Detroit. Founded tile
manufacturing business in the United States.

from Robert Hirsch as written by his mother Constance Klauber:

). Rachel and my grandfather Herman Freund met and were married in Barranquilla 1870. He was appointed a Special Counsel to Detroit from Colombia about 1878. He was in charge of commerce (import and export) between Detroit and Colombia. Half of their 10 children were both in South America and half in Detroit. On the ship coming north they passed a ship "S.S. Olinda Rodriguez" so one of my aunts, who was born right after they arrived, was named Olinda. I have 30 first cousins from my mother's 9 brothers and sisters.
Abraham Freund and his son, Herman, were born in 1814 and 1844 (respectively) in Mitwitz, Germany (near Frankfort). The Freund family were bankers in Mitwitz. We have photos of their houses. Herman emigrated from Mitwitz to Baranquilla, Colombia.
Back to Detroit of around 1875. My Grandpa Herman and his wife Rachel moved into a big house on Woodward Ave. with their 5 children - then they had 5 more (10 total). My mother, Eleanor Freund (your dad's Granny) was born in 1888, the 9th child. They had one more son, Cheri, born in 1890. He was my closest uncle and lived in Chicago just like Granny.

Back again to the Freunds of Detroit. My grandpa (who I never knew - he died in 1897 - my last grandparent Rachel Freund died just before I was born in 1923) opened the Peoples Store - Dry Goods (meaning "everything" like a small department store). There were always 20 to 30 people sitting around the dining room table at my grandparents house - with 10 children and many cousins who Grandpa brought from South America and from Germany. They stored their potatoes and carrots under dirt in the basement to keep them over the winter. They went to a meat market (probably not Kosher) to have half a cow prepared to eat. They probably knew a farmer - though they lived in what was becoming a major city - with Henry Ford beginning his business (1904) - a farmer who brought them eggs and milk and cream. I think they lived very well and had a good time. My mother's older brothers, my uncles Jack (Jacob De Sourdis Freund II) and Ignatz, went to Beaver Falls, PA (near Pittsburgh) about 1905 and went into business there. They imported molds from Germany to make roofing tiles. Maybe the clay around Pittsburgh was just right for baking them into tiles. They built up a terrific business. So much building was going on in the USA in the early 1900's. Uncle Jack went to Cornell University class of '97 and became an engineer and helped to build the Panama Canal and the subway systems of Baltimore and New York.
Julius, the oldest, stayed in Barranquilla Colombia. His 90 year old daughters still live there and have opened a museum about their famous family. Some of my other cousins visited there in the 1960's and said everyone bowed to Uncle Julius on the street and said "Buenos dias, Don Julio" like he was some kind of prince. He was in the importing business and came to the United States once or twice. One of his younger brothers, August (Do you see a connection between "August" and "Julius"?) Ignatz was named after an uncle and Jacob de Sourdis Freund must have been named after you. The best name was "Cheri Freund". He was his mother's last and probably favorite child. Can you figure out what his name means in French and German? . . . Back to Augie - he went to New York City and went into the sausage and ham business -- importing. Then Cheri, the "baby" joined his two big brothers in Pittsburgh and made tile. They all married very lovely women from prominent Jewish families. I used to visit at all their homes when I was growing up - we have lots of funny, interesting letters they all wrote to each other.
Granny's sisters married very smart and nice men -- especially including my father, Charles Klauber - who was a brilliant student of Greek, Latin and Shakespeare. Two of my aunts married Christian men. The Freund family wasn't very religious (Jewish) at that time. But now their children and grandchildren are becoming much more interested in being Jewish and observing holidays and learning Hebrew. Most of them have been to Israel - your first cousin Hileet was born there. A greatgrandson of Rachel and Herman Freund is a rabbi - Kenneth Roseman (he wrote the book we gave you -- "The Cardinal's Snuffbox" -- based on the story of our ancestor's escape from the Inquisition).

Pa and I (and you) are very lucky to have all these family records. Most Jewish families lost all their records in Europe during the Holocaust or before Napoleon, when Jews were severely persecuted. Napoleon finally allowed Jews to own land and to have last names.
1) "Freund" probably because they were friends of the Mayor of Mitwitz, Germany.
2) "De Sourdis" name they borrowed from the Cardinal in Spain when he helped them escape the Inquisition.
3) "Monash" (Manasses or Mann)
4) "Younker" there were 10 or 12 brothers half went east and half west. The younger group was called Younker.
5) "Hirsch" many Jews took names of animals: Baer, Wolf, Hirsch (which means deer or stag).
6) "Klauber" was originally Glauber meaning gleaners of the field.
