Am trying to find information regarding the parents of my gggrandfather's wife Sippi, or Siporia, or Sipora Mordecai or Mordica. She married John EANES in Norfolk, Virginia and later remarried after his death.

Dr. Baxter:
Just wondering if you have found the answers you were looking for regarding your gg grandfather's wife, Sipora Mordecai. I have been researching my husband's family for several years. He is descended from Mordecai Moses Mordecai from Tels, Lithuania. I believe he had a son, Phillip who had a daughter or granddaughter named Zipporah. I don't know who Phillip married, nor who Zipporah married. I would be interested in knowing if you think this is the same people who are in your line.

Surnames: Mordecai/Mordica
Sipora is the daughter of Philip (Philip is my gggg-grandfather ) and Rebecca (Nathan) Mordica. Sipora also had a sister - Sara and a brother Phillip Malvin Mordica.

Philip's father is Isaac and Isaac father is Mordecai Moses Mordica.

I hope this helps.

Would you happen to know if Abram Mordecai is from this line? Do you know who his parents were?

Surnames: Mordecai
I have an Abraham that is Mordecai Moses Mordecai's grand son. His parents are Samuel M and Caroline Mordecai. My Abraham F. was born April 25, 1825 and died August 30, 1858.

There is another Moses Mordecai that is German. Possible from that line. I think I seen that name there too.

I hope this helps.

This Abram was close to 100 years old when he died in 1849, in Alabama. He was already trading with the Creek nation in 1785.

I know the German Mordecai Family. As a matter of fact, I recently purchased a book written by one of their descendants in 1913 called, "Records of the Myers, Hays and Mordecai Families" It covers the German Mordecai family from 1707 to 1913. I haven't found any mention of Abram there.

Pickett's History of Alabama calls Abram a dark eyed, dark hair Jew, and describes him in a way that makes me think it very possible that he was a Sephardic Jew, rather than a German Jew.

He was supposed to have been born in Philadelphia, PA or thereabouts. If you come across anything, I would really appreciate it.

BTW, do you know where there is a full family tree for Mordecai Moses Mordica's family anywhere?

Thank you so much for your answer,
Judy L.
