Temple Israel

Mrs. Engleman (In Leadville 1887)
Born: Unknown
Death: Unknown
Married to: Unknown

Evidence for Mrs. Engleman appears only once in conjunction with a newspaper announcement for the Leadville Purim Ball of 1887. She is simply referred to as “Mrs. Engleman- Secretary” in the article. [1] No further reference is made and directories do not list any Englemans in Leadville between 1885 and 1888. In 1886, L. Stern was listed as secretary of Temple Israel and by the end of 1887, H. Braham had taken up the position, according to newspaper notices. [2] [3] A husband, first name, occupation, associations, or any further evidence of Mrs. Engleman has not been located.
