FAIRFIELD: Fairfield County Print

Jewish history of Lower Fairfield. Colonial burials: "...letters dated in 1721 that the first Jewish resident of Stamford was Nehemiah Marks. Abraham Hays, the earliest Jewish resident of Greenwich, settled in 1728, and the first Jew in Norwalk was Ralph Isaacs, who lived there with his family in 1724. His (Isaacs') gravestone is in Norwalk at St. Paul's on the Green," said Miller, founder of the Jewish Historical Society. "His wife and children are buried up the hill from him."

BOOK: The Jewish Communities of Greater Stamford released by Arcadia Publishing in November. Compiled by Miller and Baulsir, the photographic history details the origins of Jews in Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Greenwich and Pound Ridge, N.Y. [August 2009]
