I've just recently came across this your post.
I am researching the origin of my great-great grandfather, Johann Christian Friedrich, or Ivan "Alekseevich" Eisner who came from Horažd'ovice to Russia in the beginning of the 19th century.
In the list of Heidelberg students, he is listed as a Lutheran from Horažd'ovice, information about his father omitted; yet I know that that there were Jewish families of the same name there and think plausible that he was a baptized Jew.
Probably you came across him or his relatives in your research.
May I ask you, do you have any information, whether there were 'old Christians' with the same name in the town between ~1791 and 1806 or he was definitely of Jewish origin?
Do you know about any conversions of Eisners to Lutheran faith in the same period?
Is there any information about Eisner with the first name that could have been rendered as 'Aleksey' in Russian beside Abraham Eisner in the 1793 census?
