•  "Bernstein was one of the first Jews to sink roots in Huntsville. He had settled here by 1859, as that year's city directory listed him as a resident and business owner. Bernstein was a jeweler before he became involved in real estate. He was born in German and settled in Baltimore, Maryland before heading south and marrying Huntsvillian Henrietta Newman in 1852. He became a business leader in Huntsville, serving on the board of the local bank." - The Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life
