Rabbi Yehezkiyahu Katz HaCohen [deceased 1830] a Kabbalistic genius A disciple of the Gaon Rabbi Yosef Steinhart from Fjorda, the rabbi of many of Gdoley Israel in that generation. was appointed rabbi in the city of Revoy on the recommendation of Maran Hatam Sofer, and even the Hatam Sofer Quotes him in his answers: "רובץ תחת משאו דבר ה' דגליל רעבוי", And in the year 1816, the Hatam sofer wrote an answer to him:"מורה צדק לקהל ה' גליל רעבוי". In the introduction to the book "Beit Yisrael" part 7, a wonderful story appears about him. When he was offered the rabbinate in Beled, he was already old, and he replied that he accepted the rabbinate however. When he took over the rabbinate at the beginning of his tenure, he said: "וימלוך יחיזקיהו עשרים שנה בבעלעד", and when he reached the last day of his tenure twenty years later! He got up and went to Mikveh Tahara and called his sons and grandsons and blessed them, and called ten people and said 'Shma Israel' and his soul came out in Tahara.
