Mark Goldenberg left Russia and immigrated to the United States in 1870.  He then set up residence in Detroit, Michigan where he met and then married Rosa Altman on February 10, 1878. [1] The couple left Michigan and arrived in Leadville sometime in the early part of 1880.  Mark quickly found work as a bookkeeper for Joseph Shoenberg at the Carbonate Chronicle.  [2] The Goldenberg’s frequently chose hotel living, [3] moved frequently, and never established a full-time residential address during their stay in Leadville.

Mark moved up the ladder relatively quickly at the Chronicle and was promoted to the position of business manager in 1882. [4] He also dipped into mining speculation and became the majority shareholder of the White Cap Lode by year’s end. [5] The couple became popular within the Leadville social circles and attended many community functions.  In May of 1882, the Goldenberg’s were among the many distinguished guests at the wedding between Judge Thomas O’Brien’s daughter, Florence, and Chronicle Foreman Charles Williamson.  The wedding was held at Saint George Episcopal Church [6]  which still stands directly across the street from what would become the site of Temple Israel Synagogue in 1884.

Names associated with this surname:

  • Mark Lewis Goldenberg
  • Rosa (Altman) Goldenberg
  • Louis Goldenberg

Mark remained at the Chronicle for most of the following year before moving on to become the business manager for CC Davis & Company by 1884. [7] The Goldenberg’s continued to be quite active not only in the Jewish community, but would also attend other social functions around town including fundraisers for Saint George [8] in addition to Jewish functions. They attended regular services conducted at the Temple Israel [9] after the synagogue was dedicated on September 19, 1884. [10]

By 1885 Mark had become the manager of all CC Davis & Company newspapers, which included the Democrat, the Daily Evening Herald, and the Chronicle which were consolidated the following year. [11] Mark held that position until he and Rosa left Leadville for Aspen in 1888.  The Aspen Daily Times mentions that the Goldenbergs returned to Leadville in January of 1890, [12] but they do not appear again in the city directories and had relocated to Detroit by the time their son, Louis, was born in 1892. [13]

Mark Goldenberg died in Detroit, Michigan, on March 8, 1932, [14] Rosa did not remarry and joined him on March 18, 1936. [15]
