Treasure Chest Thursday: Kargman Glass & Window Shade Co, FLPBA 25th anniversary publication

Louis Kargman, owner of Kargman Glass & Window Shade Co., Inc., placed this advertisement in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association's 25th anniversary publication.

There are several Kargman immigrants who were originally from Labun, Russian Empire. I have not, however, found evidence of Louis Kargman's place of birth or residence prior to emigration. 

Kargman Glass & Window Shade Co., Inc. was incorporated in 1933 and is no longer active.[1]

Louis Kargman was married to Sarah and, according to the 1940 U.S. Census had three children: Milton, Sylvia and Judith.[2]  

Louis and Sarah are not buried in the FLPBA plot. Nevertheless, they appear to be buried in Montefiore Cemetery in a plot owned by the Louis Kargman family.

Comments on posts are always welcome but will be approved before posting. I actually prefer to just let people comment without going through this rigmarole, but I've recently had to delete some posts that I had not vetted before publication. So, please don't be offended. I love to hear from you!
