No. 30, issued to Mordecai Myers for 5 shares on August 6th, 1825. Signed by Myers on reverse. Also signed by the agent and cashier. 3.75 x 6.25" Mordecai Myers was born in Rhode Island in 1776. During the War of 1812, he became a captain in the 13th Pennsylvania Infantry. General John Parker Boyd sent Captain Myers to Sacketts Harbor, where two boats loaded with more than 250 men and military supplies were wrecked. When he arrived to rescue them, he found the two boats were fast filling up with water and the crew in chaos. Risking his life, Myers and his men rescued more than 200 men and saved what was left of the military supplies. He was later severely injured in a different battle. After the War of 1812, he became involved in state politics (the first Jewish member of the New York State Legislature, 1828-1834); local politics (the only Jewish mayor of both Kinderhook, in 1838, and Schenectady, in 1851 and 1854); and national politics (candidate for U.S. Congress in 1860, at age 84). Myers was present when George Washington was sworn in as president in 1789.
