Rebecca Margulis Rubin (1894-1962) immigrated to the United States from Russia around 1908 with her husband, Sam Rubin (1888-1940), and her husband’s uncle, Nathan Levine (1887-1964). The trio lived in New York City before they moved to Summerton, South Carolina in 1919. After they arrived in Summerton, Sam started a general merchandise business, which he operated until his death in 1940. Nathan also started a general merchandise business, which he operated until around the time of his death in 1964. According to the 1940 U.S. Census, Rebecca worked as a saleslady at a general merchandise store, presumably that of her husband. The 1950 U.S. Census lists Rebecca’s occupation as a merchant at a retail dry goods store. As Rebecca remained in Summerton after her husband’s death, she likely either continued the operation of her husband’s business or worked at Nathan’s store.
