Samuel Schmule (Smüel) FÜRTH ?born 1618 does not seem to be correct - source? Residence 1632: expelled from Fürth, Germany, settling in Sušice (Schüttenhofen) okres Klatovy, Bohemia, Czech. Died: 1640 + Gürtel (?) *geni
Note: see History of the Fürth family Adobe document ".. The name Fürth was first mentioned in the archives of Bohemia in 1616. A document dating from the beginning of the 18th Century reveals that one Smüel Fürth and his wife Gürtel lived in 1630. Lazar Fürth and his wife Anna were living there in 1690. In 1696 Samuel Fürth and his wife Jettla and Isak and Hennele Fürth lived there.. 1783 census has only one Fürth living in Sušice, Daniel Fürth, a "Schnittenwahren- und Tabakhändler" (a trader in wood carved products and tobacco).." OR 1793 census has below Dawid Fürth, Lazar Fürth living in Sušice, as well as Daniel Fürth (abt 1742 -), Samuel Fürth (abt 1748 -), Markus Fürth (abt 1758 -) & Sara Kohn ( m. 1791 - ) marriage witnesses Daniel and Dawid Fürth. They could all have been brothers of Dawid and Lazar or 1st cousins?
Note: Fürth family ".. Joachim Popper was ennobled, presumably around the middle to end of the seventeenth century. I anticipate here but, following Emil’s move to Vienna in 1915, he was managing director of a large Austrian company, Leykam Josefstal AG, whose board chairman was one Baron Popper von Artberg – could it have been that Emil was descended from Chaile Popper and Baron Popper from Joachim Popper?.. 1793 census had David Fürth living in Sušice with his wife Rosalie and children, as well as widow with her children, one Rachel (nee Fürth) Lederer (probable sister of David) and a house-teacher Natan Bamberger.."

Note: see The writings.pdf of Emil Fürth ".. June 27, 1914 Emil acquired the pulp and paper mill at Nestersitz from Mr. August Brune.. It was at this point in 1925 that Mr. Hermann Salzer turned up on my doorstep.. I had been pleasantly acquainted with Mr. Salzer, the co-owner of the reputable paper making company, Salzer & Hetzer in Obereggendorf.. Mr. Salzer showed full understanding for the reasons for my negative response, and then proceeded to set up the Obereggendorf Paper Mill Joint Stock Company.. 1927 I didn’t heed Stefan’s anxious pleading that I should suppress any attempt to get the bank to lower the offer it made me and I was in fact able to obtain a price reduction. I wish the negotiations had failed because this acquisition proved to be the third and largest disappointment of my life.."
