There is very little information that can be found on the Feitleberg family. The infant Feitleberg was interred at the Leadville Jewish Cemetery in 1884, listed as two months old, with a simple wooden marker bearing no more information than the name. [1] Listed in the 1885 Leadville city directory is what seems to be the misspelled name of Nachman Fetleberg. [2]  It is quite likely that this was the head of the Feitleberg family whose time in Leadville was short.  He appeared, as a laborer, only once in the city directories.

Names associated with this surname:

  • [infant] Feitleberg
