Born in 1844
Born in Russia
Nathan Cern was born in Russia during 1844 and had arrived in Leadville by 1880. Cern was a clerk and lived in a boarding house which included Fred Butler and Henry Frankle, both Leadville merchants. It is possible Cern worked as a clerk at Butler’s and Frankle’s store, the Palace of Fashion. Nathan Cern did not stay in Leadville long, and by 1881 he had disappeared from the Leadville city directories.
