Migration from Suwalki Gubernia To S.C. #poland #lithuania

My father's ancestors migrated from the Suwalki Gubernia, mostly from Kopcheve, not Kapciamiestis, Lithuania, to Charleston, S.C.
My great grandfather's nephew Isaac Wolf Banovitch was the first to start that migration.
Does anyone know why Jews from that area went to Charleston in particular?
