Talmud of Rav Nosson Adler, Rav of Frankfurt am Mein
Reb Yisroel Ber Kursheedt is the only known talmid of Rav Nosson Adler the Rebbe of the Chasam Sofer to be buried in the United States.  Reb Kursheedt was a contemporary of Rav Avraham Bing and Rav Wolf Heidenheim. It is reported that Rav Adler held these three talmidim in equal estimation and would often say Avraham is a charif, Wolf is a medackdek, and Yisroel is a chochem.
