Philip Teitelbaum's taped recollections (Summer 2007) Note: audio is ON Peter: OK, we're talking about the Singerman's. Philip: The oldest son was Irving, and the second son was Hymie, and the third son was David. They got into....they were in business together. The funny one I remember...about Hymie Singerman. He used to kind of talk...with his throat and he used to be teased because I know the guys they would say "Rrrumble, rrrumble goes the trrain, and away goes Minnie." Peter: (laughter) Philip: That was Hymie. Peter: Anything else about the Singerman's? Philip: No, that's all. Peter: Patofsky and Glassman. Philip: Patofsky was the tailor, and I would say the man who most kept to himself. You just didn't know anything about him. And Glassman, there was Lily Glassman and she is the one that was at a hockey game and a puck hit her. She had to have a lot of dental surgery. Peter: There were two Glassman families Philip: Yeah. Peter: Anything else about Glassman? Philip: No, that's the only thing right now.
Perry Guralnick tells about the family I was told by Perry Guralnick that Yankel Glassman was a cattle trader who lived in Papineau. I don't know if this is the same family. One daughter married a Mr Cohen, and there were two more sisters.
Pearl Nebach Maritzer tells about the family Pearl Nebach Maritzer told me that the Glassmans lived in Papineau, mid block between Beaubien & St Zotique. The parents names were Jacob & Sorel. They had 4 daughters: Lilian, Katie, Betty and Ruth. Lilian married Issie Cohen.
