notes

From http://www.isjl.org/alabama-mobile-encyclopedia.html

Many of these early Mobile Jews played an important role in civic and political affairs. In 1830, Solomon Jones moved to Mobile and became a very successful merchant.  Jones was quite active in the town’s civic affairs, serving as a volunteer fireman, an alderman, port warden, and rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Alabama State Militia.  Solomon’s brother, Israel Jones, also served on the city council and was briefly the acting mayor of Mobile.
