New Book Chronicles Eight Generations of American Jewish Life

Lively stories told by descendants of an American Jewish financial dynasty, buttressed by superb genealogical detective work dating back to the late 1600s, make An American Experience: Adeline Moses Loeb and Her Early American Jewish Ancestors an engaging glimpse into a portion of our national history rarely explored. 
Introduced by author and Southern historian Eli N. Evans, the book is comprised of three parts. Part I recounts Adeline's early life in the South and later life in New York married to Carl M. Loeb, founder of the legendary Wall Street firm of Loeb, Rhoades. Part II covers the history and enthusiastic public response to national exhibits of early American Jewish life. Part III is a genealogical narrative of eight generations of the Moses family, sprinkled with full-color early American portraits and reader-friendly family trees.

Critics and reviewers have labeled writer and Southern historian Eli Evans, a "master story" teller, a tribute borne out by his deft introduction to An American Experience: Adeline Moses Loeb and Her Early American Jewish Ancestors. (FOX NEWS)
