Treasure Chest Thursday: Joseph Schwartz family advertisement, FLPBA 1949 anniversary publication

Glazier Joseph Schwartz and his wife Gussie purchased this advertisement in the 1949 anniversary publication of the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association landsmanshaft organization in New York City. 

Gussie Kargman, daughter of Meyer and Goldie, from Labun (Lubin), Russian Empire, married Joseph Schwartz on 31 January 1925.[1] Gussie had emigrated from Danzig with her mother and sister and landed in Boston Harbor on 21 February 1921.[2]

Gussie's naturalization record indicates that Joseph was from Tomes (possibly Tamasi), Hungary.[3]

Gussie and Joseph had two children who grew to adulthood: Shirley (born in 1925) and Milton (1933-2010). Lillian died as an infant on 20 October 1931.[4]

In the late 1930s, Joseph and Gussie moved from Manhattan to Hartford, Connecticut.[5] They opened State Glass in Hartford and their son Milton joined his father in the store after he finished college.[6] 

Gussie died in 1951 and Joseph in 1967 in Hartford.
