family. Public records helped
to fill in the mystery.
According to Aminoff,
24-year-old Solomon Weil ar-
rived in Ann Arbor from
Bohemia in 1845 and peddl-
ed dry goods and notions
across Michigan. His brother
Loepold, 25, then brought his
wife, Rachel Sittig, and their
two children. The other
brothers, Moses, Marcus and
Jacob, ran the French Shop, a
general store in Pontiac,
Mich., before they joined
Loepold and Solomon in an
Ann Arbor tannery, J. Weil
and brothers. The Weils were
among a dozen Jewish
families living in Ann Arbor
in the 1840s, Aminoff said.
The Weil brothers opened
their homes to visiting Jews
and kept their households
kosher. The conducted the
first minyan in Michigan in
1945.
Joseph Weil, 73, and his se-
cond wife, Sarah Stein, arriv-
ed in Ann Arbor in 1850 to
join his sons. Joseph's sons ap-
parently asked him to buy a
sefer Ibrah in Prague, and he
brought the scroll when he
came to Ann Arbor.
Loepold donated his ser-
vices as chazzan and shochet,
Aminoff said. Jacob studied
to be a rabbi, was known for
his public speaking skills and
served as chaplain of his
Masonic lodge. He also was
elected alderman twice and
nominated for mayor.
In her research, Aminoff
traced the land transfers of
the Jewish cemetery in Ann
Arbor, from 1825 until Elijah
W. Morgan and his wife sold
the cemetery parcel to
Loepold and Solomon Weil,
Moses Rindskopf and David
Widenplatt, who acted on
behalf of the Jews Society of
Ann Arbor.
William P. Groves acquired
the land in a sheriff's
foreclosure sale in 1871, and
a deed filed in November
1899 indicated Samuel
Langsdorf had acquired the
cemetery in 1894 for one
dollar from the estates of
Leopold and Solomon Weil.
The deed agreement re-
quired Langsdorf to acquire
land in Forest Hill Cemetery,
now at Geddes and Obser-
vatory, and move the me-
maining graves there from
the Jewish cemetery. In 1935,
the University of Michigan
began buying the land that
had been the Jewish
cemetery.
Beth Israel Memorial
Gardens, part of the Arbor-
crest Cemetery, was incor-
porated in 1955, but the
Jewish graves in Forest Hill
Cemetery remained there
and the gravestones were
restored.
