Meyer Kargman landed at Ellis Island on 6 March 1913. He was born and had resided in Labun, Russian Empire prior to immigration to the United States. His family, wife Gosda (Goldie) and daughters Gisia (Gussie) and Ruchla (Rose), joined him in the USA on 21 February 1921. By that time, Meyer had established himself and, like so many Labun immigrants, had a glass store.
Gussie married glazier Joseph Schwartz on 31 January 1925. Their marriage certificate indicates that Goldie Kargman's maiden name had been Bifson. While Joseph was not from Labun, but from Hungary, he and Gussie were also buried in the FLPBA plot.
Rose married hat-maker Sam Glass on 15 June 1929.
Meyer and Goldie are interred in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association plot in Montefiore Cemetery, Queens, NY: block 89, gate 156N, line 12L, graves 1 and 2.

Because many of these people constituted my Lubin relatives' friends, acquaintances and neighbors, I have recorded these burials and submitted them to JewishGen where they are online in the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry. In posts about burials in these plots, I will provide additional information about those interred.
