The Solomons moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where Benjamin worked as a tailor and dry goods clerk. They later moved to Moncks Corner, South Carolina. Benjamin Solomon officially changed his name from Berall Lozer Charchewsky to Benjamin Louis Solomon when he received U.S. citizenship in 1942.
