According to Shaf-Brener, Naftali Fridman, a grain merchant, was married to Diba (nee Chin). Naftali and Sheyndl, a previous wife, had three children: a daughter Roda, and two sons whose names are not given. Kehilat Shkud gives the names of two young Fridman men, Abraham and Leib; their relationship to the Fridman family described by Shaf-Brener is, however, unclear.

Kehilat Shkud mentions a Frida Eliash-Friedman, a teacher in the “Yavne” folk-school and the Hebrew pre-Gymnasium who emigrated to Israel (29; 56), presumably before the war.

JewishGen’s Lithuania database has listings for the Fridman family going back to the mid-1800s, but I could find no specific listings for Naftali, Diba, Sheyndl, or the children. Jewish Gen’s Marriages database lists a Naftal and Riva Fridman of Skuodas, whose 30-year-old daughter Adile was married to Solomas Gildel in Skuodas in 1927.
