Madame Pauline Latz Phillip (b. Pauline Kaul) (1797-?) had two husbands: Samuel Salomon Latz (1775-Jan. 17, 1829), and Isaac Phillip (?-1848). She was naturalized a (partial) Posen citizen on June 6, 1834. At the time she lived in the city of Posen (today Poznan, Poland). The entry in Edward David Luft's book: "The Naturalized Jews of the Grand Duchy of Posen in 1834 and 1835" (Scholars Press, Atlanta , GA) about her reads as follows (p. 51):

69 Posen Latz, Pauline, geb. Kaul Kfmwtw. 6-6-1834
Kfmwtw is short for "a merchant's widow".

With her first husband, she had (at least) three children:

Madame Latz Phillip's second husband was Isaac Phillip (Filhene, April 3, 1784- Berlin, March 16, 1848). He died in the revolt of 1848. Here is his entry from the above-mentioned Jacobson book:
