Samuel Goldblatt was listed as “S. Galdblat” in the 1883 Leadville City Directory. That year his residence was at 115 West Chestnut Street and his profession was “laborer”. [4] Three other Jewish families lived or owned property in the vicinity including Isaacs, Selix, and Blumberg. [5] The Selix family operated a contemporary tailoring business at the same address in late 1883. [6] Samuel did not appear further in Leadville newspapers or city directories beyond the sole mention. Later documents indicate that Samuel and his wife Pearl had a son while they lived in Leadville. According to his World War Two draft card, William Goldblatt was born in Leadville in the early spring of 1883. [7] No other record of the Goldblatt family was found among Leadville’s newspaper archives. The family were listed in the 1900 Census as residents of a farming community southwest of Denver called Montana. According to this record, William was the first of seven children and the family operated a dairy farm until the 1930s. [8] Samuel, Pearl, William and all but two of their other children are buried in the family plot in Denver’s Rose Hill Hebrew Cemetery. [9]
