Anton is the only known surviving son of Herschmann and Elisabeth (née Wedelesová) Fuchs. From the available records it appears he never married. The death record indicates he was a salesman. The same says he died at home at 8 in the morning, cause of death unclear.

Fuchs, Friedrich Simon [ b. 11.5.1839, Josefov 250, Prague - d. 9.2.1880, "Bartholomeusgaße 306," Prague] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Obituary, Prager Tagblatt
Friedrich was the sixth-born child of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. In life he actually used his father's name as his middle name - far from a universal practice at the time, but common enough in this Fuchs family. He married Rosalie née Doktorová*, the first cousin of his brother Gottlieb's wife Eleonora, on 16 June 1867 in Prague (exact location not given in the available marriage record). As a profession it appears Friedrich was also a draper or cloth merchant, like other men in his family. Together Friedrich and Rosalie had at least three children, all sons, and split time between Prague and Vienna. Following his death, Rosalie remarried an Alexander Schwarz.

*Rosalie's surname is recorded as either Doktor and/or Koppelmann and/or Koppels, depending on the source record; the explanation is under investigation. Might be related to her father's (lack or change of) familiant status pre-1848, or to an adoption, or something else such as a legal name change. Koppelmann appears in more than one record as her father's middle name, not a surname. The obituaries for some of the family give Koppelmann as the surname or maiden name.

Fuchs, Gabriel Lazar [ b. 28.6.1795, Josefov 682, Prague - d. 29.7.1824, Prague] Police Conscription Document
Gabriel is the eldest known son of Lazar Löbl and Esther (née Wahleová) Fuchs. Little is know about Gabriel, except that he married Josefa Wahleová on 21 March 1819, evidently at his parents' home. It's unclear whether the Josefa's surname is coincidentally the same as his mother's, or if there is a distant family relation. The familiant record, that belonging to Gabriel's father, lists Gabriel's consensus date (ability to marry, according to the familiant laws) as 22 February 1819. Gabriel and Josefa had at least the three sons listed in the familiant record - unlikely more than three children as Gabriel died at only 29 years old due to heart failure. The eldest two children, Jakob and Leopold, died as babies.

Fuchs, Gottlieb [ b. 26.2.1836, Josefov 250, Prague - d. 18.8.1913, "Tynsgaße 10," Prague] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Obituary, Prager Tagblatt
Gottlieb was the middle child and third-born son of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. He married Eleonora née Doktor* at the Prague High Synagogue on 10 October 1858, and they subsequently had at least 9 children including a set of fraternal twins, Arthur & Olga, born in 1864. In life Gottlieb was the head of a sales office (Händlungsgeschäftsleiter). Gottlieb died at home from "pleuritis exudativa" at 10 in the evening, and is buried in the New Jewish Cemetery at Section: XX Row: 6 Number: 35. His Hebrew name was Gershon.

Gottlieb's obituary gives some nice insight into his life. It says he was "gewesener Großkaufmann, Mitglied vieler humanitärer Vereine, Hauptmann des bürgerlichen Infant. Korps"- translated it is "former big businessman, member of various humanitarian organisations, and captain of the local militia."

* Eleonora's surname is recorded as either Doktor and/or Koppelmann and/or Koppels, depending on the source record; the explanation is under investigation. Might be related to her father's (lack or change of) familiant status sometime pre-1848, or to an adoption, or something else such as a legal name change. The obituaries for some of the family give Koppelmann as the surname or maiden name. Her father's Prague census record lists him as "Emanuel Markus Doctor (Koppelmann)," and her own marriage record gives him as Emanuel Koppels (Koppelmann) Doctor."

Fuchs, Herschmann [ b. 3.9.1829, Josefov 250, Prague - d. 3.9.1902, 819/II, Prague] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Obituary, Prager Tagblatt
Also known as Hermann, Herschmann was the eldest child of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. In life he was a salesman. He married Elisabeth Wedeles at the Klausen Synagogue on 26 May 1853, and together they had at least four children. Herschmann died on his birthday in 1902 from multiple sarcoma (cancer) and is buried in the New Jewish Cemetery at Section: XI Row:3 Grave: 28. According to his gravestone his Hebrew name (in this case the name is actually Yiddish
) is the expected Hirsch. The available records indicate he was a draper ("Tuchhändler") at the time of his passing.

Ignatz is the only known surviving child of Gabriel Lazar and Josefa (née Wahleová) Fuchs. In life Ignatz was a prominent businessman, manufacturer, and philanthropist, and was known to move in political circles throughout the Empire. As the only surviving son of Gabriel, Ignatz was granted familiant status, and he appears in the same familiant record as his father and grandfather. He married Barbora Stößelesová on 17 September 1848 at the Old-New Synagogue in Prague, and together they had at least 9 children. Ignatz died at home at 8 in the morning from a pulmonary condition.

Fuchs, Lazar Löbl [ b. c. 1760 - d. ? ] Police Conscription Document
Lazar is the earliest member of the Fuchs family about whom we have any meaningful information, and my 4th-great grandfather. As implied by the name and stated in the familiant record, his father's first name was Löbl. Lazar married Esther Wahleová c.1790, and they had an unknown number of children - very likely more than the 3 listed here. There is one relevant familiant record, but unfortunately it doesn't shed any light on earlier lineage beyond his father's name. Lazar is listed in the 1794 Prague Jewish census as "Lazar Lewi" Fuchs, along with his wife and daughter, suggesting Ewa was the eldest and only child at that point. The same census also says he was a "Kleiderhändler" or clothing merchant or trader. Interestingly it says his wife was in the same trade, which suggests they worked together.

Fuchs, Ludwig [ b. 30.10.1834, Josefov 192, Prague - d. 17.8.1905, Josefov 152, Prague] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Obituary
Ludwig was the second son and third born child of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. In life he was a businessman or salesman of some kind - the census record appears to refer to him as a businessman formerly in Philadelphia, PA. He married Fanny Adelsheimerová (some records drop the "s," but with "s" is correct) - the same census record indicates they were married 10 June 1866 in Philadelphia. Is it not clear whether they had any children. Ludwig's Hebrew name was Lev (techincally could be either Hebrew or Yiddish). He died at home from cancer of the heart at 7pm, and is buried in the New Jewish Cemetery at Section: XV Row: 11 Number: 10.

Fuchs, Rudolf [ b. 9.10.1837, Josefov 250, Prague - d. 14.2.1886, 468/II, Prague] Police Conscription Document Police Conscription Document Obituary, Prager Tagblatt
Rudolf was the fourth son and fifth-born child of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. In life, like his brothers, he was a wholesaler or big businessman. He married Pauline Neumannová on 28 Feb 1869 apparently at the Hotel Dub in Prague. Toghther they had at least two children, both daughters. The fate of both daughters is unknown. Rudolf died at home at 11:30 in the morning evidently due to heart failure. Rudolf's Hebrew name was Rafael - a very unusual name owing to its non-canonical significance to Jews.

Samuel was the youngest of the seven known children of Simon Lazar and Theresia (née Jeitelesová) Fuchs. Currently we only know that he married twice, first to Eva née Frank who passed away (marriage date unknown), and then to Barbora (aka Babette) née Rösselová, whom he married on 17 May 1900 in Brno. It appears neither marriage produced any children. Samuel died at home at 5 in the evening, from a cerebral haemmorhage.

Simon is the youngest so-far identified child of Lazar Löbl and Esther (née Wahleová) Fuchs. Simon married Theresia Jeitelesová on 23 November 1828, though his consensus date (that is, the ability to marry under the so-called familiant laws to limit the number of Jews in the empire) was 1 March 1828, according to the sole familiant record for him. The couple had at least the 7 children listed here. Simon died at home at 8 a.m. from old age-related causes.
