I am searching for any information on Mordechai 'Max' Freedman born around or before 1860 and died btwn 1897-1899. He was married to Sophia (Sophie, Shifra b. Yaakov) and believed to have immigrated to the US in 1881. He is of Jewish descent, most likely immigrated straight to Philadelphia from Russia (although Germany is also a possibility).
Sophia's maiden name is probably Lappin, also of Jewish descent. b. 1860, d. 26 Jan 1930, lived in Philadelphia when Max died, moved to Los Angeles, CA around 1910. Immigrated to the US in 1881.
Together Max and Sophia had seven children:
Jacob H. Freedman b1883 d1967
Married Clara Teeter;
Rachel Leah Freedman b1885 d1961
Married Walter Goellner;
Harry Freedman b1887 d1983;

Had 6 children;
Isadore (Harry?) Freedman b1891 d1975

Rose Freedman b1895 d1971;
Jennie Freedman b1898?
Possibly married sometime btwn 1930 & 1940
