R. Yoseph I of Rome
Our ancestor R. Yoseph I descends from King David in one of two possible ways.
According to The ESKELES Genealogy
by Zeev ESHKOLOT
he was the son of Rav Khai (Hai) Gaon (b. 939, d. 1038 CE).
See p. 320 and 1130 of vol. 7 of
Encyclopedia Judaica 22 Volume Set.
(See Aryeh LIFSCHEUTZ, Avoth Atarah le-Banim, Warsaw (1927) p. 163
for claim of descent from R. Hai.)
However, in Hai's eulogy, Samuel Ha-Nagid said that Hai left no child. (!?)
Perhaps this simply meant that Samuel's son R. Yoseph I had already passed away.
Alternatively, According to David HUGHES, RDavidH218 at Aol.com,
Yoseph was rather the son of Samuel Ha-Nagid,
and Hai married a daughter of Samuel Ha-Nagid. (Gaon of the Sura academy 997-1013).
Either way the descent of R. Yoseph I proceeds through the Maharal
and the Chavas Yoir to my step-grandfather
This information matches up with the
Yikhus Letter in the possession of
the Sans Hassidim (Zans Khassidim) which goes through
R. Bezaelel Ben Yaacov.
