After months of research, I have gone back another generation
to the first cousin of my grandfather David Glazer or Glasser
(b. Galosshoff). I have found Jacob Becker, wife Rachel and
son Frank Becker having emigrated >from Chomsk or Bereza, Russia
in 1897 to NYC , then moving to Toronto, Canada, and then in
1925 emigrating to Miami Beach.
Jacob Becker was a builder and property owner having founded the
Congregation Beth Jacob (the first synagogue in Miami Beach)in 1929
And was the first President.
His father was Boroch Becker and mother Rachel Kleinman Becker. Jacob's
Brothers were David Becker of Brooklyn and Miami Beach and Israel and
Isadore Becker of Brooklyn, and sisters Sarah Becker Schafer and Hannah
Becker Poldy or Springfield, MA.
Anyone having information or connections to this family, please advise.
