We are not sure if or how we are related but my grandmother Amelia Hirschhorn was born a Friedlander. She married Lazar Hirschhorn of Latvia. Her family was from Lithuania. A group of them migrated to Charleston, SC before the Civil War and at least one of them served in the Confederate army.
Suggest you contact Alex Friedlander who is a well known genealogist for more information.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] About Moses Friedlander, Brooklyn, NY Rabbi
I am seeking information my great-great uncle Moses Friedlander of
1637 50th Street, Brooklyn, NY, son of Hirsch Friedland(er) of Besaglo,
Latvia. The 1920 census lists his occupation as salesman but his nephew, my
grandfather David Freedland, told me he was a Rabbi as did my mother
Cecelia Rosenberg. My mother visited them often and told me all the
children - more than 13? -were musical and that each one played an
instrument. She also told me their house had only one bathroom and they
had a schedule for using it! Hannah Metzger, hallie.metzger@...
