MORRIS J. GOLDMAN - Though having come to The Bronx comparatively recently, Mr. Goldman has quickly become a
valued participant in its business life. He was born in Russia, January 16, 1883, a son of Harry and Sarah Goldman,
his father, now retired, making his home with his wife in Brooklyn.
Morris J. Goldman came to the United States with his parents in 1893 as a boy of ten, and was educated in the public
schools of New York City. He went to work as a young man and eventually established himself in the automobile accessories
business in that part of Manhattan known as Greenwich Village. After having continued in this business for more
than fifteen years, he removed to The Bronx and in 1922 founded the Fordham Plumbing Supply Company, Inc., wholesale
dealers in plumbing supplies, at No. 3941 Third Avenue, The Bronx, of which company he is president. He is a member
of Columbian Lodge, No. 484, Free and Accepted Masons; Adirondack Lodge, Knights of Pythias; Grand Street Boys'
Association; Mount Judah Benevolent Association; and The Bronx Board of Trade. His religious affiliations are with
the Jewish faith and he is a member of the synagogue in Everett Hall.
Mr. Goldman married in New York City, March 24, 1907, Nettie Roffman, daughter of Abraham and Leonore Roffman,
both dead. Mr. and Mrs. Goldman have no children and make their home at No. 1355 Morris Avenue, The Bronx.
