Mordecai Sheftall (1735-1797)

Mordecai Sheftall was born in the town of Savannah on December 2, 1735 in the British land trust of Georgia to Prussian-born Jews, Benjamin and Perla Sheftall. According to John McKay Sheftall in "The Sheftalls of Savannah," Mordecai's father, Benjamin, was born in Frankfurt-on-Oder in 1692 and moved from Prussia to London some time prior to marrying Perla in 1730 or 1731. Benjamin and Perla landed in July 1733, and were among a group of forty-one Jews eventually granted permission to settle in Georgia by the British resident trustee, James Oglethorpe.1 The Sheftalls, along with the family of Abraham Minis and Jacob Yowel, were the only Ashkenazic Jews among the Sephardic families in the Portuguese and German group hailing from the Port of London. As citizens of Georgia, the land trust, Georgia, the colony, and finally, Georgia, the state, the Sheftalls established themselves not only as forefathers of the fledgling Jewish community and the greater community of Savannah but ultimately, as forefathers of the United States of America itself.

The Georgia trusteeship was established by Oglethorpe in 1732 with the purpose of assisting the worthy poor of England to "better their condition by giving them land in the New World, and assisting them in its cultivation by bounties or otherwise." The "worthy poor," those released from debtor prisons in England, never quite made it to the philanthropic-minded colony, and Georgia slowly became a haven for Scots with crafts and construction ability, poor English tradesmen and artisans, and Protestant religious refugees from Switzerland, France and Germany.2 Jews were not necessarily included as part of the "worthy poor" or religious refugees, but Oglethorpe did not, despite hesitancy from England, turn the Jewish group away when they landed.

At the time of Mordecai's birth, Georgia also served as a buffer zone for the English against the Spanish in Spanish East Florida. The frontier settlement of Savannah was little more than an outpost along the southernmost edge of the British Empire's new world. From 1640 on, the Spanish and British squabbled over control of the land with the British establishing South Carolina above Georgia and the Spanish maintaining outposts below it. The Spanish encroached upon English trading and Spanish Florida became a haven for runaway slaves.

All of the Sephardic Jews who landed with Sheftall or arrived later, fled Georgia when the War of Jenkins' Ear - which became part of the larger European War of Austrian Succession (1740-1748) - broke out between the Spanish and British in the colonies and East Florida from 1739-1743. The Sephardics were aligned by birth to Spain rather than Britain (who were aligned with the Austrian Empire), while the Askenazic German Sheftalls stayed neutral.3 The British eventually won the larger war, but James Oglethorpe, who led the Georgian battles against Spain, lost control of the colony and sailed back to England in 1743, never to return. From 1741 to the late 1750s, only two Jewish families remained in Savannah, the Sheftalls and the family of Abraham Minis.4

Benjamin and Perla had two children, the first of which, Sheftall Sheftall, was born on August 3, 1734, and died as a toddler. Perla was quickly pregnant again, having Mordecai a little over a year later. The birth combined with colonial living conditions weakened Perla considerably and she died eleven months after Mordecai was born, on November 2, 1736. Benjamin raised Mordecai for a few years by himself until he remarried Hannah Solomons in Savannah in 1738. Hannah hailed from Amsterdam and little is known about her life prior to arriving in Georgia. She had migrated to Philadelphia, and in what may have been an arranged marriage for the couple, moved to Savannah on October 5, 1738 with the nuptials held shortly thereafter, on November 20. The new couple went on to have two sons and half-brothers to Mordecai: Levi, born on December 12, 1739 and Solomon, born in 1741 and died in 1743.

Benjamin established himself in Savannah as a farmer, merchant and shipper, never accumulating real wealth and holding only five slaves at his death, though he did well at providing for his family. What he lacked in wealth, however, he gained as a leader in the community. In 1734 he helped translate for a group of newly-arrived, German-speaking Austrian Lutherans - the Salzburgers - who were expelled from Austria by Count Leopold and, along with other Savannah Jews, established the first synagogue in Georgia, Congregation Mikveh Israel (Kahal Kadosh Mickva Israel).5 In addition, Sheftall was one of the five founders of the inter-faith organization, St. George's (or Union) Society for the education of orphan children, and was inducted into the Savannah Solomon's Lodge, a Masonic Temple founded by Oglethorpe. When Benjamin died in 1765, he was buried in a small family plot created by Levi Sheftall that exists today. Mordecai Sheftall would go on to establish a more permanent Jewish burial ground for the larger community.6

Though Benjamin was respected in the non-Jewish community, he was somewhat reluctant to engage fully in the communal life with them because he had grown up in European ghettoes with restrictions on Jews; limitations that his native-born and out-going son, Mordecai, did not experience in Georgia. Mordecai had only a few years of formal schooling and his bar mitzvah (the first recorded bar mitzvah in what would become America) was delayed as Hebraic books did not arrive in a timely fashion from England, but Mordecai was never denied the rights of citizenship acutely experienced by his father. As a native-born Jewish Georgian with young Christian friends, Mordecai developed the same feelings and opinions as a growing portion of his fellow Georgians regarding concepts of freedom and independence as the colonies moved steadily toward separation from their English leaders.

In 1752, Georgia became an official crown colony of Great Britain.7 Land grants had been a problem prior to the designation between the trusteeship citizens and England due to lack of family inheritance rights and the inability to mortgage land, but with colony status these rules changed. Citizens naturalized under British rule could petition the crown for at least fifty acres of land and while Benjamin reluctantly filed for land, Mordecai wholeheartedly applied for his first plot in 1753.8 This petition began a lifelong passion for acquiring land by Mordecai and Levi, both of whom ultimately bought or petitioned the colony for thousands of acres, though many of their requests were denied and most of their holdings lost after the American Revolution.

Mordecai followed his father's footsteps into the merchant and trading business, establishing himself in a variety of businesses including warehousing, tanning, and ranching, but mostly the mercantile trades of import and export. In 1759, he petitioned for and received land along the Savannah River and built a dock and warehouse. With this warehouse established and family ties to the mercantile industry in England, Charleston, Philadelphia, and the Caribbean Islands, Sheftall was able to grow his business, acquire more land and slaves, and by 1776 had made numerous trips to the Caribbean and at least one trip to England.9 Levi initially worked in the mercantile business, but eventually settled into the work of tanning, sawmilling, and ranching. As Mordecai became financially grounded, he married Frances Hart (1740-1820) of Charleston, South Carolina, on October 28, 1761 in the home of Frances' brother, Joshua Hart, a prominent Jewish merchant in Charleston and friend of Mordecai's. Together Mordecai and Frances had five children who lived to adulthood: sons Sheftall (named after Mordecai's deceased brother), Benjamin, and Moses, and daughters Perla and Esther. A sixth son, Elias, died in infancy. Levi married Sarah De La Motta of St. Croix in 1768. Sarah was fourteen and Levi twenty-eight and together they had several children.

By 1771 a little fewer than 2,000 residents, including Negros and "infidels" (Native Americans), lived in Chatham County with Savannah as the county seat. Notes from the files of former American Jewish Historical Society librarian Isidore Meyer (who worked on the original Works Progress Administration Guide for the Sheftall papers), report that a Chatham County ecclesiastical census by the Rev. Mr. Frink listed the residents by religion: Church of England, 1,185 residents; Lutherans, 193 residents; Presbyterians and Independents, 499 residents; Jews, 49 residents; Negros, 40 and Infidels, 30.10 Since the Jewish community had grown, Mordecai, as head of the Jewish community, reestablished the Congregation Mikveh Israel in 1774 and also established a larger Jewish cemetery as well. The Sheftalls lived in Savannah in relative comfort as their businesses were thriving, they were land and slaveholders, and were respected in the community. However, the upcoming political strife between the British crown and its colonies in America upturned their economic and home life. Mordecai was a devout and firebrand Patriot who wholeheartedly joined the Sons of Liberty and Savannah's Parochial Committee and became known as a rabble-rouser by the British. Like many Georgians at the start of the Revolution, Levi was more cautious and reserved on the coming conflict. While he was in favor of independence, circumstances would later forever taint his reputation after the war and ultimately cause a permanent rift between the otherwise close brothers.11

B.H. Levy notes that prior to 1763, Georgia was the southernmost and youngest frontier colony as well as the poorest and weakest though it was ruled well by Royal Governor James Wright. Wright, governor from 1760-1776, was generally well-liked and respected as a resident farmer and slave owner in the colony, and was Georgia's third royal governor since the dissolution of the trusteeship. Georgia had fared well for the most part under the English who protected it from Indians and Spanairds on the borders. Georgian colonists whose parents, mostly British by birth, were not necessarily against taxation without representation, but against the taxes themselves levied by the Stamp and Sugar Acts.12 The Stamp Act was particularly onerous as the tax had to be paid in gold or silver, which was in short supply in Georgia.13 From 1764 to 1767, the passage of the Stamp, Sugar, and Townsend Acts were all used to raise revenues (or in the case of the Townsend Act, also punish some colonies for disobedience) for the British Crown as they had depleted their coffers during Europe's Seven Years War and America's corresponding French and Indian Wars (1754-1763). These taxes sapped the profits of the increasingly successful Georgia colony, even though the war was mostly fought to secure and defend the American colonies from French and Spanish encroachment. Levy notes that Georgia was more reluctant to fully enter the fray than its fellow colonists, but joined when needed as a series of incidents surrounding the Acts ignited the revolutionary flames of Georgians.

In addition to the tension that British-born Georgians and their American-born children brought to the fore, Georgia became increasingly difficult for Governor Wright to rule as the colony's legislative Assembly bodies - the upper Council and lower Commons - consistently were at odds with each other over Continental support. The upper house contained primarily loyalists to the crown while the lower house mostly those in favor of succession. Wright dissolved the Commons more than once in several years of unrest and at times refused to seat certain members voted to the Assembly. In late 1765, Wright officially declared that the Stamp Act was in effect and closed the port of Savannah to await the arrival of the Stamps and Stamp Master. When both arrived and Stamps were affixed to goods and shipped out, tensions arose between South Carolina and Georgia legislators and merchants who felt that Georgia should have put up a stronger fight against the use of the Stamps. Trade was temporarily halted as Governor Wright contended with the newly-established Carolina Sons of Liberty who destroyed two ships attempting to leave Charleston for Savannah shortly thereafter.14 The Sons of Liberty sprang up after the passage of the Stamp Act and not only were they vocal in their calls for boycotts of British imports, but willing to back up their words with acts of sabotage and rebellion. Ten years of continual strife and incidents from 1765-1775 took their toll and war between Britain and its American colonies eventually broke out in 1775.

All of the colonies except for Georgia were represented in the First Continental Congress that convened in Philadelphia from September to October of 1774. After the Boston Tea Party of 1773, Britain retaliated by closing Boston Harbor in May 1774 and enacted the Second Quartering Act (part of the Intolerable, or Coercive/Restraining Acts widely denounced in the colonies). These actions helped pushed the revolutionary call in Georgia as members of the Liberty Parties called a meeting for July 27 to respond to the British as a colony, but representation from the parishes was sparse and the meeting was postponed to August 10. Governor Wright, who had been in England, was back in the colony and issued a proclamation against the upcoming meeting. The meeting went ahead as planned, with twenty-six invited delegates attending and every parish represented. The meeting adopted eight resolutions regarding Britain's actions, but the attendees would not approve a representative to send to the first Congress. They were not yet ready to "openly oppose British rule in America" but did send provisions of rice and coin to Boston.15

Governor Wright challenged the August resolutions and offered pay to residents to sign petitions against them, while Georgia's only newspaper, The Gazette, published the resolutions adopted by the First Continental Congress and announced an all-parish meeting on January 15, 1775 in Savannah. This would be Georgia's First Provincial Congress, called to prepare for the Second Continental Congress scheduled for May 10. Only four parishes out of twelve sent representatives to the First Provincial Congress and the attendees voted not to send representatives to the second Congress, though the most vocal of the parishes against Britain, St. John's, consisting of the towns of Midway and Sunbury, held meetings independently and sent one non-voting representative, Dr. Lyman Hall, to the Second Congress. However, the day the Second Continental Congress began was the same day that word reached Savannah of the April 19th fighting between British and American troops at Lexington and Concord. News of the battles decisively pushed the Whigs of the Liberty Parties who had held the meetings of 1774 regarding the Continental Congresses. On May 11, Noble Wymberly Jones, Joseph Habersham, Edward Telfair, Mordecai Sheftall, and others, broke into the royal powder magazine and seized five hundred pounds of gunpowder that they then sent to Boston.16

By summer 1775, the Whigs became a large majority in Georgia and the Second Provincial Congress met in June 1775. The Provincial Congress became known as the Parochial Committee and passed nineteen resolutions and barred exports and imports from Great Britain as the Continental Association had recommended during the Second Continental Congress; elected delegates to Congress, appropriated funds for defense and created the Council (or Committee) of Safety to "function as the executive arm of the government when Congress was not in session." Mordecai Sheftall, an avowed Whig and vocal patriot for independence, had been a member of the rebel Parochial Committee and was now appointed Chairman of the Council of Safety, a position he held until his capture by the British in 1778. This committee strenuously enforced the ban on British goods and demanded that ship's papers be handed over to them in order to verify the origin of goods. In July 1775, Georgia, under Oliver Bowen, who would eventually become Georgia's naval commodore, commandeered a British vessel, Philippa, seizing its cargo of gunpowder, lead bullets, shots, and guns. Governor Wright fervently wrote to England in an attempt to retrieve the ship and its contents for the ship's captain, but by this time, British control of Georgia had ceased. The firearms were stored in Savannah's powderhouse and the ship was put into the service of Georgia and the Continental Navy.17

Mordecai was eventually appointed the Deputy Commissary of Issues for Georgia. A committee report from Georgia submitted to the Continental Congress, in January 1778 and published on February 13, 1778 reads: "Resolved, That all Provisions for the Troops in Georgia, shall be supplied by Contract, or in such other way as shall appear to the Government of the said State, to be the surest Supply and the least prejudicial to the said State and the United States."18 These appointments made him a colonel in the civilian staff of the Georgia Continental Line and as Deputy Commissary of Issues, Sheftall's job was to furnish the Georgian troops with food and supplies, meaning that he purchased rations with his own funds and billed the government. This merchant provision system was a part of the Quartermaster system during the war. Mordecai's son, Sheftall, would eventually join him as a Commissary of Issues, though unfortunately, the Sheftall family would never fully recoup the funds put forward for the troops of Georgia and South Carolina. From late 1777 to December 1778, Sheftall performed in this capacity as Deputy Commissary of Issues within the Georgia Continental Army structure and provision returns for both Army and Navy functions may be found within this collection of papers.

For most of 1778, the battle for Georgia was won by the Continental troops as several British attacks on the town of Sunbury and Savannah were thwarted and Georgia's small navy, commissioned in 1777 - including the galleys Washington, Bulloch, Congress, and Lee - successfully captured one major British vessel, The Hinchenbrook. By September 1778, the tide turned to Great Britain's favor and Savannah was attacked for a second time by the British forces. General Howe, commanding the Southern Department, captured Fort Tonyn from the British in July but ultimately lost the Southern command as his push through Charleston and Savannah into Florida (known as the Florida Expedition) failed at the Battle of St. Augustine. In September 1778, Benjamin Lincoln, recouping from a head injury, replaced Howe as commander of the Southern Department but did not arrive until after Christmas. The British finally captured Savannah in November 1778, and occupied Sunbury in January 1779. Many of Savannah's citizens, including Mordecai's wife, Frances, fled to the larger city of Charleston. Mordecai and Sheftall were captured in Savannah on December 29, 1778. The Fall of Savannah in 1778 left the city occupied until the end of the war. The final battle cost the lives of over eighty Continental troops and only seven British soldiers. "Thirty-eight officers, four hundred and fifteen non-commissioned officers and privates, including the sick, wounded and the aged inhabitants of the town were made prisoners" according to McCall's historical account of the defeat of the city.19 The fort's armaments were taken by the British including cannon, mortars, howitzers, ammunition, and provision stores. The soldiers were admonished to join the British side and all who refused were housed on prison ships in the harbor.

According to an account of Savannah's capture,20 Mordecai and Sheftall attempted to escape from the British who landed at Brewton Hill near Savannah earlier in the day. Around 3:00 PM, the British entered the town and took possession of Savannah. Mordecai and Sheftall tried to cross the Musgrove Creek by following Colonel Samuel Elbert and Major James Habersham's forces, but the troops came under fire from the Light Infantry of Sir James Baird, and the creek was at high tide. Sheftall Sheftall could not swim and therefore could not cross the flooded creek. Mordecai stayed with him, and along with other Continental officers and privates, they were pinned down by the British. They surrendered to British troops and were moved to a house in town and eventually transported to the prison ship Nancy anchored in Savannah harbor in January 1779. Mordecai was kept on the Nancy until February 25, but still worked to supply the American troops. He was paroled to Sunbury in April, though Sheftall was detained for a longer period of time aboard the prison ship. Mordecai petitioned for Sheftall's parole and in June, Sheftall finally joined Mordecai in Sunbury. During this time, Mordecai made very little money in order to feed and house his family stranded in Charleston and the war continued in Georgia as Count Jean Baptiste d'Estaing failed in an attempt to recapture Savannah in October 1779. The Sheftalls, along with other Continental troops, attempted to escape from Sunbury and were recaptured, prompting the British to send them into exile on Antigua. Mordecai requested that Continental forces conduct a prisoner exchange for those on Antigua and eventually a parole was granted on April 11, 1780 and he was exchanged for Jacob Jarvis and Sheftall for John Jarvis on July 14. As fighting continued in Georgia, the British stipulated that they could not return to Savannah, so the Sheftalls made their way to New York and Philadelphia. Mordecai hoped that he could restart his mercantile business and provide for his family.21

Levi Sheftall fared no better than Mordecai during this time. He had advised Count d'Estaing on attack strategy in October 1779, and when the attack failed, he was accused of being a Tory by the Patriots and a Patriot by the Tories. As this was the low point in the war, Levi believed that the Patriots would not win and he accepted a general pardon by the British in order to return to his family in Charleston. Patriots believed that he had given up Savannah to the British and when control of Georgia was regained in 1782, he was banished and his property confiscated under the Act of Confiscation and Amercement. Francis Sheftall, who fled Savannah to Charleston with the four other Sheftall children, earned funds by washing and ironing.22 In Philadelphia, Mordecai asked Congress for back pay or reimbursement for out-of-pocket funds provided for troops to bring his family to Philadelphia, but not enough funds were provided to him from Congress. The Board of War asked Sheftall Sheftall to sail as a flag master on the Carolina, a "flag-of-truce" ship being sent to Charleston on a mercy mission. Sheftall asked Congress for back pay and additional money for ships' stores, which led to some members accusing him of extortion. Eventually Sheftall sailed with the ship and anchored in Charleston on February 14, 1781. The ship was anchored for six weeks in the harbor as negotiations for the mission continued. Despite not having funds to pay for Frances and the children, they were able to board the Carolina and head to Philadelphia with Sheftall Sheftall after an arrangement was hashed out between Mordecai and the ship's owners. The family was at last reunited after spending two years apart from one another. Mordecai also attempted to revive Congregation Mikveh Israel while living in Philadelphia.

Their financial situation eased slightly when Mordecai was appointed as Georgia's agent for purchasing troops clothing in 1781 and the Sheftalls invested in a Philadelphia-based sloop called the Hetty. The investment in the Hetty began a short-lived and ill-fated investment adventure on the part of the Sheftalls in the business of 18th-century privateering as the war approached its final year. The ship's first captain and business partner was Henry Darnell (also spelled Darnol) and the business relationship between Darnell and Sheftall quickly soured. Darnell was replaced by the slightly more able Thomas Deburk, but the Hetty captured and successfully sold the confiscated goods of only one British vessel, the sloop Swift. However, the ship would consistently endure sea troubles and Mordecai eventually sold his interest.23

By December 11, 1782, the war was over and the Sheftalls had returned home to Savannah, five months after the British left the city. Upon his return, Mordecai resumed his position as a merchant and community leader, but much of his property and assets were gone. By February 1783, he was in business again. Though he was able to rebuild the business somewhat, financial woes plagued him as the Continental government could not reimburse him for all of his expenses accrued during the war. The new Continental government was also suffering from financial burden after the war, owing millions of dollars to foreign governments and citizens alike. Even though he suffered from cash flow issues, Mordecai continued to buy land on credit or mortgage and several times had to relinquish properties as a result of suits brought against him for lack of payment to debts. Even though finances plagued him, his standing in the community was not diminished and he served on numerous committees and positions after the war until his death. In 1789, he successfully obtained an incorporation charter from the Georgia government for the re-established Congregation Mikveh Israel after the state passed legislation allowing for the incorporation of religious societies other than the Episcopal Church. He was elected synagogue president from 1791-1796. As a slave holder, he was appointed as a commissioner to supervise, regulate, and license slaves, Commissioner for the Streets and Commons and held the only approved tobacco-inspection warehouse in Savannah. He also served on the board of the Union Society for orphans established by his father, Benjamin Sheftall, was a Chairman on the Board of Wardens, and a lumber inspector, among various positions. Mordecai Sheftall died July 6, 1797.

Mordecai worked steadfastly on behalf of Levi Sheftall's return to Savannah by writing to the Assembly and encouraging friends to do the same on Levi's behalf. In August 1783, the Assembly relented and allowed Levi to return to Savannah and by 1787, all of his rights as a citizen, including the right to vote and hold office, were reinstated. However, a rift developed between the close brothers over finances loaned to Frances during the war, which tore the brothers apart and shattered their relationship.24 Levi died in 1809 and his wife, Sarah, passed away in 1811.

Frances Hart lived with her unmarried daughters, Perla and Esther, after her husband's passing and died in 1820. Little is known regarding Perla, but Esther established a successful millinery shop out of their home. Benjamin Sheftall perished at sea on a French privateer ship, the Industry, in 1794. Moses Sheftall went to Philadelphia to study medicine under Benjamin Rush at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1790. Moses returned to Savannah to practice and became an expert in infectious diseases. He also served in the state legislature and married a Gentile woman from Savannah, Nellie Bush. Moses died in 1835. Sheftall Sheftall lived the longest of his siblings, dying in 1849. Sheftall was somewhat of a wandering spirit after the war, drifting off to Philadelphia and New York where he petitioned many an official, including Alexander Hamilton, to reimburse his father monies owed him during the war. He eventually moved back to Savannah and in 1819 was an honored guest at a dinner for President James Monroe in Savannah and was active in Congregation Mikveh Israel. As he aged, he became reclusive and eccentric and wore revolutionary-era clothing and three-cornered hats. Sheftall died at the age of 90.

Scope and Content Note

The Mordecai Sheftall Papers record the personal and business affairs of Mordecai Sheftall, and to a lesser extent, his wife, Frances, and their sons Sheftall, Moses and Benjamin. The smaller portion of the collection includes Mordecai's family papers along with his merchant business dealings prior to and toward the end of the American Revolution, including his appointment to Deputy Commissary of Issues then to Commissary of Issues for the State of Georgia and his grievances against the United States for lack of payment for supplies he purchased and issued to troops. The greater majority of the collection's documents are the roughly 2,792 slips of paper known as "provision returns": receipts of goods and items such as beef, pork, candles, rice, flour, etc., provided to troops and units of the First through Fourth Georgia Regiments and Battalions, some South Carolina Regiments, other militias and volunteer units working with the Continental Army, and vessels in the employ of the Continental Navy. These returns document supplies to Georgia troops from late 1777 through 1778. Some returns request supplies instead of being receipts for them, but these make up a small portion of the returns.

The papers were purchased circa 1927 from Mrs. (Dr.) Walter M. Brickner (née Perla S. Abrahams) by A.S.W. Rosenbach and later donated to the American Jewish Historical Society by Rosenbach. Mrs. Brickner was the grand-daughter of Perla Sheftall Solomons (wife of Lizar), who was the daughter of Moses Sheftall, youngest child of Mordecai Sheftall.

The Mordecai Sheftall Papers have been notoriously difficult to catalog, whether by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1941 or the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) in 2012. The collection consists of four basic types of documents: correspondence, account books, scraps of paper known as provision returns, and printed catalogs from the WPA. The majority of the collection is over 228 years old and consists of over 2800 provision returns that have been through war and swamp water. Each document was assigned a unique number, but the WPA indexed only 328 documents while leaving the great majority uncataloged in an unwieldy and undetermined “original” order.

When the collection was reorganized beginning in 2010 with final digitization occurring in 2012, a daunting task lay before the archivist: how to organize an unruly collection of paper scraps into a somewhat more coherent organization while keeping in mind that the documents would be conserved, microfilmed, digitized, and stored away from human damage. Processing, microfilming, and digitization required maintaining if not original order, then at the least, original document numbers.

In the end, three unique numbers were used or created:

These three codes may be used in order to specifically identify documents within the collection for researcher citations.

Explanations of the WPA and artificial digitization codes may be found in the Collection and Works Progress Administration Guide Note below. A master list of WPA codes and their corresponding digitization codes may be accessed here: WPA Codes and Corresponding Digitization Codes

Collection and Works Progress Administration Guide Note

Collection and Works Progress Administration Guide Note

The collection was originally organized by the Works Progress Administration's Historical Records Survey upon that program's expansion from public and church archives to private manuscript repository collections. The collection was surveyed under the New York City Historical Records Survey and published in an unfinished book format in 1941. The publication was the fourth New York City Historical Records Survey contribution in manuscripts, and posed a "difficult problem in editorial planning, and the solution for compressing all the significant content of the manuscripts into an orderly and limited framework[s] makes this volume something of an anomaly among manuscript collection guides and calendars." Indeed, the records, though calendered by the WPA, have been primarily unusable despite the effort made by the Historical Records Survey.

The items themselves were originally stored by serial number in eight lettered file boxes without a known original arrangement and numbered as follows: A 1-630, B 1-419, C 1-361, D 1-507, E 1-361, F 1-468, G 1-377 and H 1-49. The Historical Records Survey then "created a card catalog, alphabetically arranged by surname and subject, and referring to the documents by container-letter and serial number." Each document was taped to legal-sized paper stamped with the corresponding numbers next to the document. This process was not archivally sound: it used non-acid-free backing paper and presumably non-archival tape that browned. In addition, the provision return materials themselves were subjected to pond and swamp water at some point during or after Mordecai and Sheftall Sheftall's flight or escape attempt from British troops in late 1778. As a result, the documents were fragile; age, water, taping, and lack of a system for easy retrieval of material made use difficult.

In 2008, Save America's Treasures, a joint private/public office of preservation administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service, granted the American Jewish Historical Society funding in order to conserve, organize, microfilm, digitize and present these rare archival documents of the founding of America. The papers were conserved by Jeffrey Rigby; organized and described by Tanya Elder; Encoded Archival Description was created by Marvin Rusinek; and microfilmed and digitized by Hudson Microimaging. The Gruss-Lipper Digital Laboratory of the Center for Jewish History ingested and presented the collection on the Center's Digitool system supervised by Andrea Buchner and ingested by Eric Fritzler.

As noted in the WPA Guide, the papers themselves fell into five original subgroups as follows:
1) Commissarial activities of Mordecai Sheftall during the American Revolution in and around Savannah, Georgia,
2) pre- and post-Revolutionary mercantile ledgers and records,
3) Continental money, which has disappeared from the AJHS repository, possibly after being on display sometime during the 1960s or 1970s,
4) papers regarding Mordecai's efforts with privateering and the Schooner Hetty and,
5) Sheftall family letters and papers.

WPA NumberCJH Digital Lab Digitool CodeWPA Index NumberNew Item Title/DateDocument Size (cms.)Document Type

The WPA selected representative items to transcribe in the WPA Guide, using the original document number and an added index number to identify items. The index numbers, 1-328, were assigned in numerical order according to subgroups: Commissarial Activities of Mordecai Sheftall (divided into Credentials and Instructions, Record of Supplies, and Account with United States and Georgia); Mercantile Ledger; Continental Paper Money (since disappeared); Privateer Papers: Schooner Hetty; and Sheftall Family Letters and Papers.

The American Jewish Historical Society applied for and received a Save America's Treasures grant in 2008 in order to preserve the papers by a conservator, organize and arrange the documents by a grant archivist, and microfilm and digitize the collection by a migration company. The grant team chose conservator Jeffrey Rigby and Hudson Microfilming for conservation, microfilming, and digitization. Originally calling for a grant archivist to concentrate fully on a difficult collection, the AJHS chose to use the full-time Senior Archivist, Tanya Elder, for this project.

In order to systematically preserve and re-organize the collection while maintaining a connection to the original WPA Guide, each document was removed from its paper backing, cleaned and deacidified by the conservator. Each document was housed in individual poly-archival folders and the original WPA code number printed on a label and placed on the poly-folder. Each code number begins with "WPA" followed by the alphabetical drawer and document number, i.e., WPA_A-0102; WPA_D-0001, WPA_H-0032. The affixed number was then entered onto an Excel spreadsheet.

As noted, there were 328 index numbers assigned to 328 transcribed documents within the WPA Guide. In order to maintain the connection to the WPA guide and the indexed documents, each document appearing in the WPA Guide was located and recorded. Once the documents were found within the collection, a hand-written asterisk was marked on the affixed WPA number label to denote that the document had been transcribed into the WPA Guide. The Index number was also placed into the Excel spreadsheet for identification.

Once this task was completed, an organizational framework was formulated as the original WPA number scheme could not be replicated in regards to original order. At times, original order seemed to be divided by original cover sheets found within the collection (see Subgroup II, Series IV, Subseries III: Covers) but a firm conclusion could not be made in regards to original order from the placement of the Covers.

Provision Returns in the collection are primarily handwritten. Printed return forms from the Continental Congress and Quartermaster Departments appeared later during the American Revolution, and a few examples of these printed forms can be found within the Sheftall papers. Provision returns followed a general pattern, described below. Each provision return was read and deciphered by the following standards, determining its placement within the collection and then a title for each document was created.

Note: Some items were not attached to their storage paper backings and subsequently lost their identifying WPA code number. Among these items is a 28-page Memorandum Book for the Congress galley with the Index #144 linked to document WPA_A-0011 as well as [WPA_A-0001 Index #150] [WPA_A-0006 Index #155] [WPA_A-0006 Index #156] [WPA_A-0007 Index #159]. Index #160 in the original WPA guide had no WPA code assigned to the document.

Provision Returns General Note

Please note that the recto and the verso of each Provision Return differs slightly with each Regiment, Battalion, Company or Unit and each Provision Return itself and therefore describing each of the documents on the Item Title level became at times, a lesson in frustration. Even though there was no across-the-board uniformity, one standard of description eventually emerged to document almost 2900 Provision Returns by way of Item Level description.

This standard is noted below.

Rank and Position: No designations of rank or position such as Lt. Colonels, Majors, Quartermasters or Deputy Quartermasters have been used in Item Title Descriptions except where there is an omission of first name of either the signer or recipient on the Provision Return and their rank or position is indicated. This is due to the variations on names and ranks, found in the WPA Index of Names, for each item. Please consult the actual Provision Return and the WPA Index of Names to distinguish persons and rank. Please pay particular attention in this regard to Maj. Gen. Robert Howe, Doctor Robert Howe, and Ensign / Lt. / Quartermaster / Sgt. Robert Howe. In most cases, the provision return is signed by Robert Howe, Quartermaster.

Recto and Verso Certification of Distribution and Receipt: Provision returns in this collection were commonly issued on the recto of a return and certified as distributed on the verso of the return with an additional signature of the person receiving the provisions. Unless the verso of the return has significant information that the recto of the return does not contain (or, in a few instances, an entirely different Provision Return) there has been no attempt to document the verso of each return. In some cases, the verso has been used to verify dates, if provided on the verso, but verso signatures and dates are not recorded on the Item Title description.

Range of Dates: In some cases, a certification of distribution is provided on the recto of a return, along with a range of dates that the return provides for. Date ranges for these returns are included where possible. However, the Provision Return is filed by the date of certification, if found on the recto, and not the start of the date range of the provisions provided to a person or groups of persons. If there is only a range of dates stated on the Provision Return, then the Provision Return is filed for the start of the range of dates.

Numbered Regiments, Battalions and Units: Provision Returns of the 1st Regiment/1st Battalion, 2nd Regiment/2nd Battalion, 3rd Regiment/3rd Battalion and 4th Regiment/4th Battalion have been filed together into one series for each numbered Regiment/Battalion. While a Regiment and a Battalion are two different military units, it became increasingly clear shifting through the Provision Returns that it would be impossible to separate the Provision Returns by Regiment and Battalion (and in a few cases, Brigades). Some returns are for a specific Regiment but signed by a member of a specific Battalion and vice versa and due to the reasons cited above regarding rank or position and the number of Provision Returns, it became impossible to note fully all distinctions in the Item Title. Therefore all returns of a numbered Regiment or Battalion are filed together under the number of each Regiment or Battalion.

Provision Returns with Unnamed Regiments and Battalions with Signatures Only: For the most part, a specific Regiment or Battalion (or in a few cases, Brigade) is noted in the text of the Provision Return and is therefore used to file the Provision Return. In other cases, the Regiment or Battalion is not named in the text of the Provision Return, but after the signature of the person certifying the Provision Return, and is therefore filed by that person's numbered Regiment or Battalion. In many cases, a Provision Return contains neither a numbered Regiment nor Battalion and is therefore filed in the "Signed-Only, Illegible and Fragmented" subseries.

Units: If the Provision Return is named for a specific type of Unit, i.e., Artillery, Light Dragoons/Light Infantry, Sick/Hospital, Wagoners, etc., these returns were singled out and filed by the type of Unit the Provision Return is for, rather than the numbered Regiment or Battalion, which in most cases is not noted.

Once the items were reorganized by Regiment, Battalion, Unit, Vessel or Unsigned, new code numbers were assigned to each document in order to facilitate the new organization and eventual digitization of the collection.

On the whole, the new organization scheme of the collection is not markedly different from the original Subgroups. New Subgroups are as follows: Subgroup I: Mordecai Sheftall, Sheftall Family Papers, and Privateer Papers, undated, 1761-1867, 1932; Subgroup II: American Revolutionary and Continental Troop Commissarial Work and Provision Return Records, undated, 1777-1779, 1782-1783 and Subgroup III: Works Progress Administration Guide and Index, 1941. Each of these Subgroups is divided into Series and Subseries, explained under the Series Description portion of this finding aid.

Some WPA Guide items found within the collection do not fall neatly into Subgroup Series. These items were placed into Series thought to be most relevant, particularly materials regarding Mordercai Sheftall's pre- and post-American Revolutionary papers and activities. As such, researchers should be aware of the crossover nature of some documents in Subgroup I, Series I, Subseries I and Subseries II: Mordecai Sheftall Correspondence and Papers and Subgroup II, Series I, Subseries II: War Credentials and Case Against United States and Georgia Records.

There are three WPA Guides within the collection, each in varying degrees of completion. Only the most complete of these guides was digitized, along with the set of Index Cards to the collection, which may be found in Subgroup III: Works Progress Administration Guide and Index, 1941. A further explanation of the Guide and Index Cards may be found in the Scope and Content Note portion of this finding aid for the Subgroup.

One ledger and one account book dating during the years of 1761-1795 with a time gap between the years of 1776-1790 are also within this series.

Some of the documents in this Series are closely linked to material in Subgroup II: American Revolutionary and Continental Troop Commissarial Work and Provision Return Records, Series I: American-Revolution Correspondence, War Credentials and Documentation and should be used in conjunction with that Subgroup and Series.

Subseries I: Mordecai Sheftall Correspondence and Papers, undated, 1770, 1772, 1777, 1778-1782, 1784, 1786, 1788-1792, 1794, 1932

The Subseries is in English.
Binder 1, Items 1-39.
Arrangement:

Arranged chronologically.

Scope and Content:

Because Quartermasters and Issues Commissaries purchased items from their personal monetary accounts and then charged purchased supplies to the Continental Congress on contract, it was difficult at times to readily distinguish between correspondence of a personal business nature and that of the business of the Continental Congress and Troops in respect to certain items in the collection. Therefore, several of the letters not initially transcribed and indexed by the WPA were placed either in this subseries of personal papers or Subgroup II: American Revolutionary and Continental Troop Commissarial Work and Provision Return Records, Series I: Revolution Correspondence, War Credentials and Documentation. The two areas should therefore be used together in deciphering Mordecai Sheftall's American Revolution and private merchant business dealings.

This personal papers Subseries contains material primarily on Mordecai's business dealings pre- and post-American Revolution, his parole after his imprisonment by the British forces, and his appointment as the agent for the State of Georgia to purchase clothing for the militia. One of the few personal letters in this Subseries is from Mordecai to his wife, Frances. Mordecai was still a prisoner, albeit on parole, in Sunbury, Georgia, while Frances was exiled from Savannah to Charleston, South Carolina during April 1779. Mordecai expresses his pleasure at hearing from her in a letter of February 26. He writes that he was released to Sunbury from the British prison ship Nancy on Feburary 25th, while his son, Sheftall, remained on the vessel. He writes that his "friends from Savannah" will make Sheftall Sheftall's life as comfortable as possible, as circumstances will permit. He expresses his love for his wife and children and asks that Frances give blessings and compliments to both his children and his friends (Item #13). A letter to Sheftall Sheftall aboard the Nancy from his father Mordecai (Item #14) also appears in this Subseries dated April 9, 1779. Mordecai urges his son to have patience in regards to his confinement, offering him hope that he would soon be paroled as a prisoner exchange is to take place, and expresses his approval of Sheftall writing to his mother. These two letters are the only two appearing in the collection on a personal basis from the time period of Mordecai and Sheftall Sheftall's imprisonment by the British either in Sunbury, on the Nancy or for their time on the island of Antigua.

Several letters regarding Sheftall and supplies are located in this series. Item #17, dated May 24, 1781, bestows on Mordecai bills of exchange in the amount of $4,200 from the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. This credit memo was to be used to procure clothing for the militias from the French, giving Sheftall the power to procure items as the Agent on behalf of the State of Georgia. Two letters, dated September 25, 1781 and April 16, 1782 follow from Philadelphia requesting an accounting of the state of monies and procurement of items for the militias.

Item #32, dated 1791, sees the start of Mordecai's inquiry to John Wereat requesting reimbursement from the government in recovering funds expended during the American Revolution. Unfortunately by this year, the time period to petition the new government for monetary compensation had passed, though the governmental coffers to reimburse were also depleted. Sheftall sets out his monetary claims in Items #35-36 and includes his written petition to Congress in Item #37. Item #38 is the last personal letter in the collection written by Mordecai to his son, Sheftall on April 25, 1792.

Subseries II: Mordecai Sheftall Ledgers and Account Book, 1761-1774, 1783, 1788, 1790-1795

The Subseries is in English.
Binders 2 and 3.
Scope and Content:

This portion of the collection contains two items. The first document is a multi-page, pocket-sized and leather-bound account ledger/receipt book dated August 1761 to June 1774. This ledger contains 250 pages of customer account and payment transactions conducted with Sheftall, and signed by those he did business with. This is an excellent document highlighting the inhabitants of Savannah, the items and materials purchased through Sheftall, and his accounting of their account payments. This item was donated to the American Jewish Historical Society by A.S.W. Rosenbach in honor of his mother, Isabella. The second item in this Subseries is Mordecai's mercantile ledger, started in 1783, with entries for 1788, but primarily through 1790-1795. While this document does not contain as many pages as the first item, its 88 pages of entries deal primarily with Mordecai's accounts with pre- and post-Revolutionary merchant ships.

The Subseries is in English.
Arrangement:

Scope and Content:

Three of the documents in this Subseries should be used in conjunction with materials located in Subgroup II, Series I: American Revolution Correspondence, War Credentials and Documentation. Documents include a copy of a resolution from the colony's Governor, regarding the formation of the King's Rangers, led by Thomas Browne who fought for the Crown during the war [Item #2] and a draft copy of a petition demanding that former enemies be barred from the State of Georgia, presumably drafted after the war [Item #3]. Also included is a copy of a Continental Congress resolution specifying provisions for men serving aboard Continental Congress Naval ships, dated April 3, 1778 [Item #4]. Item #5 is an unsigned and unaddressed personal letter, possibly to Mordecai Sheftall from Sheftall Sheftall, regarding business and illness matters, dated April 5. Three documents regarding Lizar Solomons, husband of Perla Solomons, are also in this Subseries. Perla was the daughter of Moses Sheftall and married Lizar in 1847. The documents contain one letter to L. Solomons from Sa. B. Bouths, dated possibly 1841, and two naturalization certificates for Lizar signed after the Civil War, swearing an "oath to support the Constitution and laws and proclamations… during [the] existing rebellion having reference to slaves." Both are signed in 1865, April 29 and July 12. [Items #11 and #12]

The subseries also contains a letter from James Guthrie, Secretary of the United States Treasury written from P.S. Salomons, Esq, presumably in answer to an inquiry to reopen the case of monies owed to Mordecai Sheftall, dated July 29th, 1856. [Item #10]. Three items pertain to the sale or exchange of ownership of slaves. [Items #6, #7, #8]

Series III: Privateer and Schooner Hetty Papers, undated, 1781-1872, 1793

The Series is in English.
Arrangement:

Scope and Content:

This series deals solely with Mordecai and Sheftall Sheftall's investment in the Schooner Hetty and their Privateer efforts, beginning May 22, 1781 to November 10, 1782. The series includes original paperwork from Mordecai to Captain Harry Darnall (Item #6, September 10, 1781) and a ship's commission with signatures of crew (Item #8, September 11, 1781) as well as a letter of transferred leadership to Captain Thomas DeBurk, sent by Mordecai Sheftall on December 4, 1781 (Item #21). Many of the documents are itemized receipts and ledger accountings for monies or goods from the ship's stores. From June 2-October 2, 1782, there are several letters between Mordecai and DeBurk regarding the Hetty's progress and issues that arose in transit. The documents describe how difficult the Hetty's journey was and how the privateering was a financial failure for the Sheftalls.

Isidore Meyer wrote of the papers in notes to his unfinished and unpublished introduction to the Works Progress Adminstration Guide that "…though the material on the Hetty is so copious, it seems from these papers that only one prize, the Sloop Swift, was ever seized by her. But the importance of these papers lies in the fact that they give so many details on the outfitting of a privateer; the commissioning of the same; the enlisting of officers, crew, and men; the disposal of the prize after it has been seized; and the vivid account of the officers and their troubles, and finally, the details of the Hetty's history."29

Subgroup II: American Revolutionary and Continental Troop Commissarial Work and Provision Return Records, undated, 1777-1779, 1782-1783

The Subgroup is in English.
Arrangement:

Scope and Content:

This subgroup is the largest of the collection containing approximately 2800 documents including correspondence, war credentials, ledgers and documents on Mordecai Sheftall's service during the American Revolution. The predominant materials in this large Subgroup consist of Provision Return requisitions for provisions supplied by the Quartermaster Generals and Quartermaster Generals Deputies to the Continental Army and Continental Navy of Georgia and South Carolina of the fledging Continental Congress from late 1777-1778.

The subgroup contains four Series, each with several subseries, including: Series I: American-Revolution Correspondence, War Credentials and Documentation, undated, 1777-1778, 1782-1783; Series II: Commissarial Records - Army, undated, 1777-1778; Series III: Commissarial Records - Naval, undated, 1777-1778; Series IV: Commissarial Ledgers and Account Books, undated, 1777-1778.

For information regarding provision return structure, please refer to the Scope and Content Note of this finding aid.

Series I: American-Revolution Correspondence, War Credentials and Documentation, undated, 1777-1779, 1782-1783

The Series is in English.
Arrangement:

Scope and Content:

This series contains two subseries of materials: Subseries I: American Revolution Provision Return and Other Correspondence, undated, 1777-1778, 1782-1783 and Subseries II: War Credentials and Case Against United States and Georgia Records, 1778. Subseries II in particular should be used in conjunction with Subgroup II, Series I, Subseries I: Mordecai Sheftall Correspondence and Papers as several of the documents overlap chronologically and by subject.

This series contains fragments of correspondence found on the back of provision returns, notes, correspondence, orders, wage payments and receipts, instructions, bills of exchange, decrees, orderly books, account ledgers, a list of demands, claims, and an account of Mordecai and Sheftall Sheftall against the United States.

Subseries I: American Revolution Provision Return and Other Correspondence, undated, 1777-1779, 1782-1783

The Subseries is in English.
Scope and Content:

Several of the documents in this subseries are indexed and transcribed in the WPA's collection guide. Several of the documents were originally in the provision returns of the collection, but upon examination, the materials themselves did not fit neatly into the category of "provision return" and were therefore placed in this subseries.

Among the documents are two pieces of correspondence (a note and a general order) from Samuel Elbert: one undated fragment thanking Sheftall for providing prisoners-at-large with rum and an order approving four rations per day to the Commissary of Hospitals. There are several fragments of correspondence and a list of Main Guard Prisoners and Prisoners on Parole that were written on the back of provision returns or on individual slips of paper. Due to the digitization process, fragments on the back of provision returns are highlighted and placed in this series. The original WPA number and the new Gruss-Lipper Digital Laboratory code follow the item titles. It is difficult to pinpoint the origins of these fragments as paper was in short supply during the war and at times reused for provision returns. The fragments are unsigned and undated.

The series also contains orders regarding hides, tallow, rum, and shirts; the settlement of back wages; a bill of exchange in favor of Mordecai for $195, and provisions of pork for the use of local Indians, flour sales, a request for "good sides of beef," and instructions from Mordecai for William Machonky regarding his duties as a Deputy Commissioner General of Issues. This last document is out of chronological order in this portion of the collection, and is dated July 30, 1778, Item #27 in this Subseries.
