Not sure who all in this thread has persisted into 2014, but we'll now find out! While it is apparent there were groups from Belogorodka that ended up in Iowa, Indiana, and Massachusetts, our group diverges from that, settling down in Texas around 1921. Most are surnamed Goltzman, but one branch became Holtzman, and that branch is associated with Missouri (St. Louis area) as well as with Texas.

which in turns mentions various sources, including this page for an Iowa cemetery with numerous Belogorodka expatriates:

Eliezer (Lazar) Lawrence GOLTZMAN, my great-great-grandfather, was son of Chaim Idel Goltzman; Lazar married Marimeeta SIEGEL and he died sometime before 1921, which is when his twin sons Max and Morris moved to the United States. Max's granddaughter Lydia Shipman recalled that they first lived in Chicago, then moved down to Texas, where the family has been for almost 100 years now..
