Eichborn
Some say he was not as strong as the results say (probably true).
But look at his games. They are Morphy like.

Current Generation, I think I would put GM Simon Williams and GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave on the list.

That's the conjecture. Probably a reasonable one. At any rate, the games we do have recorded are fantastic. It was not just Eichborn who recorded his games, there are a number of them in the chess publications of the time.

Marvelous games. I am surprised we don't hear more about him like we do about Paul Morphy or Mir Sultan Khan or some of the other prodigies.

I had not heard of Louis Eichborn until you mentioned him, and for that I am grateful Dann. I was able to locate 36 of his games on the chessgames.com site.
