Dovid Dovid (c.1783- 1866), son of Pesach Langsam, married Esther (Esther) of Manastryza, Poland, and they had at least one son.

  • Pesach (1823 - 1928) was born in Bircza. He married at least 2 times; first to Fayga and then to Beila Feit/Rein. He had 12 known children, 6 from each marriage. Pesach passed away in either Jawornik or Szklary, both in Poland, at the age of 105.
    • R' Sholem (1849 - 1937) lived in Lancut, Poland. He was married and had 8 known children. R' Sholem was a mohel and in the metal business. The Lancut yizkor book says that he awoke at 2 or 3 every morning to daven in the synagogue.
