FAMILIES: Friedman

Samuel “Sam” Friedman (1892-1961) immigrated to the United States from Grajewo, Poland in 1909. After he passed through Ellis Island, Friedman lived in New York for a short time before he moved to Charleston, South Carolina and opened a dry goods store on King Street. About five years after he married Polish immigrant Rebecca “Becky” Dreizyk (1894-1979) in 1919, Friedman moved his family to St. George, South Carolina, where he worked for Louis Lourie’s (1885-1948) clothing store.

The Jewish Merchant Project is supported by the generosity of the Henry & Sylvia Yaschik Foundation and the Stanley B. Farbstein Endowment at the Coastal Community Foundation.
