Levi Sheftall (1739-1809), butcher, merchant, civic leader, married Sarah Delamotta, resided in Savannah, Georgia.

The series consists of papers of the Levi Sheftall family of Savannah, Georgia from 1733-1856. The papers include correspondence, deeds, a diary, legal documents, military agents records, and a receipt book (1777-1814). The materials document Jewish life in Savannah, Levi's activities as a U.S. Agent for fortifications in Georgia, and the Sheftall's business interests. Of particular interest is a diary (1733-1808) begun by Benjamin Sheftall and continued by his son Levi, recording the arrivals, departures, births, deaths, and marriages of Jews in Savannah. Other correspondents include Mordecai Sheftall (Levi's brother), Mordecai Sheftall (Levi's son), and Benjamin Sheftall, Jr.
