Abraham Isaac

Sacred to the memory of
Mr. Abraham Isaac
Merchant a native of Prussia
who departed this transitory life
the 15th of February 1803
Ætat 49
Entombed beneath where earth-born troubles ceaƒe
A son of faithfull Abraham sleeps in peace.
In life's first bloom, he left his native air
A ƒojourner as all his fathers were
Thro' various toils his active spirit ran
A faithful steward and an honeƒst man
His soul we truƒt now freed from mortal woes
Finds, in the Patriarc's boƒom sweet repose

Abraham Isaac and his wife Rachael were the first Jewish settlers in Portsmouth, arriving here from Prussia at the end of the Revolutionary War.
