About Sophia Laevison

She was born in Laupheim, Wurtemburg, Germany. She came to America when about 20 years of age and was married in 1868 in New York City, to Mr. Herman Friedman. They came to Paducah to reside. Mr. Friedman survived only about two years and at his death, his widow returned to New York to live.

In 1874 she was married in Ogdensburg, N. Y., to Mr. Laevison and again came to Paducah to live. Mr. Laevison, of the firm of A. M. Laevison & Co., dealer in bottled goods, died several years ago.

Mrs. Laevison left three children, two by her first marriage, Mrs. Will I. Levy and Mr. Herman Friedman, both of this city, and one by her last marriage, Mr. Joe Laevison, also of Paducah.

Mrs. Laevison was a kind and generous woman and was much beloved by all who knew her.
