All of the Luzadder family started with Jacob & Rachel de Louzada. Many times a man took on the name of the town where he was from. I know that there is a Lousada in Portugal, where he had duties at the temple. All of the various spellings came after Jacob moved to America form Portugal, by way of England. Some of his descendants, for whatever reasons, changed the spelling of the Louzada namme. One of the Aarons' converted to Christianity when he married Sarah Cole, the daughter of Chief Little Bear. If you enter the name Jacob Louzada on a net search, you will see a list of articles he is mentioned in, on Sephartic Jewism. There is also an excellent family tree put together by Marguerite, the daughter of a Luzadder mother. Many answers are at her sight. It just takes persistence. And each new discovery brings renewed satisfaction. I thank you Marguerite, and hope all of you Luzadders, Lewsadders, Louzadas, and the many other family members of all spellings will enjoy your quest. Sincerely, Sharon Luzadder.
