Columbus Moïse

Columbus Moïse (1809-1871) born in Charleston, South Carolina, was the son of Aaron Moïse and Sarah Cohen Moïse. He married Fanny Emma Levy, a daughter of D.C. Levy of Philadelphia, Pa. For thirty-five years he was president of the principal bank of New Orleans, Louisiana. He was postmaster of that city, and was chosen by its citizens to receive Gen. Zachary Taylor on his return from the battle of Buena Vista in 1847. He was granted a large tract of land in Florida for services rendered in the Indian War. Columbus Moïse wrote many short poems, one of which was sung at the laying of the cornerstone during the consecration of the new synagogue building for Ḳ.Ḳ. Beth Elohim in Charleston, South Carolina.
