Meier Bach was born on July 3, 1828. Around 1854, he married Zerlina Kuhl Bach (June 14, 1831 - May 27, 1913) daughter of Abraham Kuhl (1793-March 16, 186?) and Madel bat Hayim Kuhl (Wuestensachsen, 1797-Unsleben(?), June 21, 1857). Meier died on Feb. 28, 1906 at the age of 79, and Zerlina Kuhl Bach died on May 27, 1913, at the age of 82. Larry Fried has kindly sent me a photo of their graves.

Meier Bach had a prospering Horse Trading Business (see Ad), that was later continued by his son, Garbriel (until his death in 1921), and Robert Bach (until he moved to Palestine, around 1938)

Meier and Zerlina had nine children.
