Excerpt from A History of the Jews of Mobile
The records of the Spanish period of Mobile colonial his tory, which extended from 1781 to 1813, do not reveal any references to Jews. If there were any here during this epoch, they have left no positive traces.
The Americ... an period of Mobile history began in 1813. The chief sources for the early decades of the federal history are the files of the newspapers dating from 1821, and the records of deeds, marriages, wills and divorces. An examina tion of these sources revealed the names of many Jews who settled or stopped in Mobile during the early part of the nineteenth century. Many of these became later identified with the Jewish congregation, but, as has been true of the beginnings of Jewish communities the world over, many Jews drifted away from Jewish associations or intermarried from necessity. Some of these became the ancestors of prominent Christian families in Mobile and the South.
