Treasure Chest Thursday: Herman Molthman family advertisement, 1949 FLPBA anniversary publication

Herman Molthman is part of a Malzmann family from Lubin/Labun who are likely related to me. So far I cannot tell how. I posted previously about this here. Herman and family also purchased an advertisement in the twenty fifth FLPBA anniversary publication.

My Malzmanns from Labun changed their name to Myers in the USA. Herman, eldest son of Benjamin Molthman and Fannie Bernstein, emigrated as Chaim Malzmann with his mother and sisters in 1910.[1] They, too, were from Labun. His father changed the surname to Molthman. His father's brother, Abraham, changed his last name to Maltman.

Chaim became Hyman and, eventually, Herman. Like his father (and so many other former Lubiners in New York City), Herman became a glazier.

On 6 July 1924, Herman married Sylvia Labovitz, daughter of Abraham Labovitz and Anna Sperling.[2] Herman and Sylvia has one child, Claire, born in 1925.[3] 

Herman and Sylvia eventually followed their daughter and her husband Jacob Berger out of New York City. Sylvia died on 4 September 1988 in Fulton County, Georgia.[4] Herman passed away on 19 November 1992 in Hendersonville, North Carolina.[5] They are buried in Arlington Memorial Park, Sandy Springs, Georgia.[6]
