L’histoire d’Abraham Louis, Bordeaux-Mirepoix-Bordeaux, 1744-1829

Christine Belcikowski


On Germinal 7, year VIII (March 28, 1800), the records at Mirepoix (Ariège) mention that one Jean Dabail and his gang, who had terrorized  the region of Mirepoix during the French Revolution, attempted to kill the gendarme Rive while on his way to Mirepoix from Pamiers in the company of a trader named Abraham Louis. I was curious to learn more about this Abraham Louis (1744-1829), also called “the Jew”, who, after arriving from Bordeaux (where we would later return), worked as a merchant in Mirepoix between 1792 and 1812 and stood out for his strong commitment to the republican ideals. In many ways, his life remains a mystery
