Note

Most of the immigrants were Christians; a small minority were Jews who found in Elgin both freedom of religious belief and economic opportunity. The first arrivals were from Germany. Leopold Adler and his brother, Joseph, opened a clothing business about 1859. After the fall of Fort Sumter, the Adlers supervised the making of uniforms for the first Elgin volunteers to answer Lincoln's call. Joseph later moved to Arkansas, but Leopold remained and prospered despite two big fires in the downtown area which totally destroyed his stock.

The quality and prices of their merchandise varied among the firms, but the unusual longevity of those businesses in a highly competitive field is an indication of customer satisfaction.Elgin's pioneer Jewish residents were German-born clothiers. Leopold Adler and his brother, Joseph, commenced their trade here about 1859. With the outbreak of the Civil War, the Adlers worked around the clock supervising the making of uniforms for the first volunteers to answer Lincoln's call. Joseph later moved to Arkansas, but Leopold remained and prospered despite two big fires that destroyed his stock. Heretiredin1896, and the business was carried on for a time by his son, Abe.
