Sam and Frieda Brotman

Frieda Brotman, who was born in May, 1897, went to live with Bessie and Philip Moskowitz when Bessie remarried in 1908.  Frieda was married to Harry Coopermith sometime in 1923 and died on May 10, 1924 after giving birth to a baby boy named Max.  Max was born on May 8 and died on May 9 of congenital atelectasis, perhaps brought on by either prematurity or  sepsis.  Frieda died on May 10 probably from either pre-eclampsia or sepsis.  Frieda and Max are buried at Mt Hebron in the same section as Bessie and Philip.
