guests of the Jewish Histori-
cal Society of Michigan,
with the dedication of a
bronze plaque in the main
Jewish Community Center
library.
The plaque com-
memorates Chapman Abra-
ham, whose first appear-
ance in Detroit is mentioned
in 1762, when he was doing
business with James Ster-
ling, a well-known Detroit
merchant. Chapman, prob-
ably a native Germany,
came originally to Canada
from England around 1760.
In Montreal, he was a mem-
ber of Canada's first Jewish
congregation, Shearith
Israel.
A year after Abraham's
arrival at the fort of Detroit
(taken by the English from
the French in 1760), he was
captured by the Indians dur-
ing the uprising led by Chief
Pontiac. After being tor-
tured and nearly burned at
the stake, Abraham was
finally set free by the
Indians, who mistook an

outburst of anger by him to
be insanity.
Abraham afterwards was
a resident of Detroit for
many years and he carried
on a successful business
here. He owned property,
and sold a variety of prod-
ucts, including liquor, furs,
gunpowder, tobacco and
real estate. In later years
he moved to Montreal,
where he died in 1783.
Doris Easton, president of
the JHSM, acted as master
of ceremonies of the dedica-
tion ceremony. Dr Abraham
Rogoff, chairman of the
JHSM historic projects
committee, made the
invocation and described
the five other markers and
plaques in which the Histor-
ical Society has had a hand
in establishing. Hugh Green-
burg, president of the Jew-
ish Community Center, for-
mally accepted the plaque
on behalf of the Center._
