Sallie and Rosa Schwartz were born in Germany in 1866 and 1869, respectively. [1] Their year of immigration to the United States is not known, nor is the date of their arrival in Leadville. The sisters were first recorded working as servants for Rosa Freschman [2] in 1885 at her residence at 137 West 4th Street. [3] Rosa Freschman was a Jewish boarding house owner who, in 1885, was only boarding one individual, Simon Hirsch. [4] The only mention of either sister in local newspapers was of Rosa in a list of unclaimed letters from March 9, 1885. [5] Sallie and Rosa remained in Leadville at least until June 1885, the month in which enumeration for the 1885 Colorado Census began.
