Treasure Chest Thursday: Herman Molthman family, FLPBA 25th Anniversary publication

Herman Molthman, son of Benjamin and Fannie Bernstein Molthman, was born in Labun (aka Lubin), Volhynia Gubernia, Russian Empire. He arrived in the United States in 1910 as Chaim Malzmann accompanied by his mother Feige and sisters, Chusse and Rochel.[1] Like his father, he became a glazier in New York City. He supported the 1936 25th anniversary publication for the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association by purchasing this advertisement.

In July 1924 Herman married Sylvia Labovitz, a Romania immigrant.[2] They had their only child, a daughter, Claire, in 1925.[3]

Sylvia passed away on 4 September 1988. Herman died  on 19 November 1992 in Hendersonville, Henderson County, North Carolina.[4] They are buried in Arlington Memorial Park, Sandy Springs, Georgia.[5]
