R. Joshua b. Moses Joseph Siegel (1846-1910) was born in Kuczbork a suburb of Plotsk, Poland. He was educated in major European Yeshivot and immigrated to the United States in 1884 where he settled in New York, officiated and wrote responsa. A volume of his responsa, Oznei Joshua (Jerusalem 1914), was published after his demise.
