THE subject of this sketch, one of the pioneers of
the " Queen City," was the first Israelite that settled in
Cincinnati. He was born in Exeter, England, May 6, 1792; he emigrated to
America in 1815, and made his residence in Cincinnati in 1820. Being an
ardent admirer of General Jackson, Mr. Jonas took an active part in the
elevation of that great man to the presidency, and his political
contributions to the leading Democratic paper, edited by Moses Dawson,
caused the opponents of General Jackson to dub him a member of the
Democratic firm of "Jonas, Cist Co. " Mr. Jonas was
honored by the people of Hamilton County with the position of State
senator for the term of 1860 and 1861. Upon the death of his wife in
1867, after forty-seven years residence in Ohio, he removed to Mobile,
Alabama, in order to live with his children. After an honored existence
of seventy-seven years, Mr. Jonas departed this life, May 5, 1869, at
Spring Hill, near Mobile, Alabama, his remains finding a resting-place
in Magnolia Cemetery, Mobile's beautiful city of the dead.
