Little information remains of the Rachofsky family’s time in Leadville with only passing mentions of a David Lewis Rachofsky and others bearing the family name in local newspapers and city directories. Claims by historian Allen Breck connect David to brothers Jacob, Abraham, and Harry Rachofsky who held business interests in Central City, Durango, and Boulder, Colorado. [1] This assertion is supported through primary sources including two newspaper mentions, one in which David and Jacob are described as leaving on a trip together [2] and another in which David attended a meeting of the Rachofsky’s New York Store Mercantile Company in Gilpin. [3] Breck further wrote that David was supposedly an officer in Leadville’s Orthodox Jewish congregation, Knesseth Israel, at its founding in 1892, though this has been more difficult to corroborate. [4] The 1892 officer list for the community which Breck alluded to has not yet been found.

David was born in Russia or Poland [5] in 1853, [6] second youngest of his brothers after Harry. His listing in the 1900 US Census records his year of immigration as 1879 [7] and based on the birthplace of one of his children, his port of arrival was New York. [8] David married Rashel Einfrank (often spelled Rachel), [9] born 1852, [10] ten years prior to his arrival in the US. [11] Together they had at least seven children between 1870 and 1890: Aaron, [12] Minnie, Esther, Sarah, and Leah born in Russia or Poland, Isidore born in New York, and Bertha born in Colorado. [13]

David and family’s first reported appearance in Colorado was in Aspen in 1891, likely arriving directly from New York. [14] He and presumably Rashel and all their children arrived in Leadville around 1892, the first year the city directory recorded David. [15] Both he and son Aaron worked as manager and clerk, respectively, with Ben Cohen, a dry goods merchant who owned a store at 124 East 6th Street. [16] Though the reason for David working with Ben Cohen as opposed to opening a branch of the Rachofsky family store is not entirely clear, it is possible it was simply due to familial connection between the Rachofskys and Cohens, evidenced by David’s brother, Abraham, marrying Etta Cohen in 1875. [17] According to Breck, Etta was the sister of a Louis Cohen of Central City, Colorado. [18]

As far as can be told, none of David’s brothers, such as Abraham, lived in Leadville, though Jacob did own property on Harrison Avenue as late as 1897. [19] Abraham was notably instrumental in financing Isaac Shwayder’s immigration to the United States in the 1870s. The Shwayder family is notable for founding the Shwayder Trunk Manufacturing Company in 1912 which would eventually become the Samsonite Corporation. [20]

David alone continued to appear in city directories through 1894, yet his family were clearly still in the city as well. He and Rashel’s daughter, Esther, appears in a student list for Central School [21] and an attendee of a ball hosted by Knesseth Israel, both in 1893. [22] Her minor connection to a Knesseth Israel social function is the only evidence we have that supports the previously mentioned assertion made by Breck with the absence of the officer list. On the other hand, Leah, another of David and Rashel’s daughters, had her bat mitzvah at Temple Israel less than a year later. [23]

David, Rashel, and their children made their way to Denver by 1900 with the city becoming the family’s permanent home. In 1910, David was still living in Denver with his wife and five of their six children. [24] The 1920 US Census is the final census in which both David and Rashel are listed, shown to have been still living in Denver with only two children, Sarah and Bertha. [25] By 1930, Rashel was still living in Denver with Sarah and Bertha. [26] David died in 1930 and is buried at Mount Nebo Memorial Park in Aurora, Colorado. [27] Rashel died in 1932 and is buried alongside David. [28] Sarah died in 1970, [29] Bertha in 1973, [30] Esther in 1960 under the last name Hirschfeld after her marriage to Hyman Hirschfeld, [31] and Minnie in 1931 under the last name Bem after her marriage to Alfred Bem. [32] All four are also buried at Mount Nebo. Leah married Joseph Meyer Silver on October 21, 1903 and eventually made her way with her new family to California. [33] She died on December 20, 1969 and is buried in that state. [34] Like their sister, the final two members of the family, Isidore and Aaron, [35] also moved to California after assuming the last name Reich. It is not known when Aaron passed away, but Isidore’s death index recorded his death as March 11, 1959. [36]

Michael Rachofsky
Occupation: Laborer
Born: N/A
Birthplace: N/A
Died: N/A

Michael Rachofsky first appears in the 1894 Leadville city directory listed as a laborer residing at 522 West 3rd Street. [37] David Louis Rachofsky lived at 201 West 5th Street so it is unknown whether any familial relation existed. After 1894, Michael no longer appears in city directories or in census records.

Mark Rachofsky
Occupation: Company co-owner
Born: Est. 1887
Birthplace: N/A
Died: N/A

Mark Rachofsky is the final person bearing the Rachofsky name who lived in Leadville. A Herald Democrat advertisement published in 1913 reveals that he worked at a clothing store at 318-320 Harrison Avenue in some form of partnership with an E. Pelton. [38] Mark was likely the son of Harry Rachofsky, one of David’s brothers. [39]
