Charles Weinberg was a prolific merchant in Colorado in the 1880s and 1890s. Originally finding limited success as a liquor distributor in Leadville, Charles eventually founded a clothing emporium in Cripple Creek prior to departing the state for New York in the early 1900s.

Born to Levi/Levy and Augusta Seligsohn Weinberg [1] in Germany in 1848, [2] Charles was the middle of three boys, his two brothers being Selig (born 1840) [3] and Louis (born 1851). [4] Charles claimed in his passport application that he arrived in the US in 1863 [5] which is corroborated by him being a veteran of the US Civil War. [6] Charles served in the war from 1863 to 1864 under the alias Charles Winbeck and obtained the rank of colonel [7] or major. [8] According to his pension index, Charles’ unit was in North Carolina, Tennessee, “Wabash,” and “Princeton.” [9] Though it may seem unusual for recent Jewish immigrants to have participated in the conflict, historians Jonathan D. Sarna and Adam Mendelsohn estimate that 8,000 Jews fought during the war [10] out of a total population of roughly 150,000, [11] whereas Donald Altschiller estimates 10,000. [12] In other words, between 5.3% and 6.6% of the Jewish population fought in the war, roughly half of the combat participation percentage of the remaining white population in the United States. [13]

After the war’s end, Charles made his way to Missouri where he married his first wife, Mina Stunkel, on October 18th, 1871. [14] The couple divorced by 1874 at the latest, the year Charles married to his second wife, Antoinette Broemser (later spelled Brenner), also in Missouri. [15] Antoinette’s birthyear is estimated as 1850 and, like Charles, she was a German immigrant. [16] The couple may have lived in Kansas prior to moving to Colorado, though sources regarding this are difficult to substantiate.

The Weinbergs first settled in Lake City upon their arrival in Colorado, however the exact year they came to the state is not known. [17] Charles and Antoinette were among some of the earliest settlers of Leadville after its incorporation, arriving in the city by early 1879. [18] Charles had made business arrangement with a Jewish Leadville resident, Louis Sonshine, [19] prior to his arrival to open a liquor distribution business in the city. [20] Their store’s first advertisement appeared in the Leadville Evening Chronicle on March 5, 1879, announcing its opening on March 10th at 27 ½ Harrison Avenue. [21] The pair later transformed their business from simply distribution into, albeit briefly, a saloon. [22]

The Sonshine & Weinberg liquor business in Leadville was not especially prolific nor long-lived. Advertisements and city directory listings ceased after 1881 and its final reference in local newspapers was a court case between Sonshine & Weinberg and a Samuel Schneider in 1883. [23] Sonshine left Colorado soon after the business closed, but the Weinberg family remained in the state for a further 20 years.

There is some confusion over who exactly in Charles’ family was in Leadville between 1879 and 1881. The 1880 US Census recorded Charles alone living in a boarding house with Louis Sonshine. [24] However, a separate census listing shows a Nettie Weinberg, her son Fred Weinberg, and daughter B. Washburn living at a separate residence. [25] Nettie being a shortened form of Antoinette, the vital records in the census listing also closely match Antoinette Broemser’s vital records found elsewhere. Nettie Weinberg was almost certainly Antoinette with Fred being her and Charles’ child. Whether Antoinette was Fred’s biological mother (or Charles the biological father) is yet unclear as his reported birthyear of 1867, if accurate, would have been seven years before her marriage to Charles. Nettie’s reported daughter, B. Washburn, born in Kansas in 1874, is yet another mystery as she does not appear in any sources after the 1880 census. Finally, Charles’ brother Louis did hold shares in various mining properties in Lake County in 1880, though he does not appear in city directories as holding a permanent residence. [26] Louis also appears in the 1880 US Census in Lake City, Colorado working as a liquor dealer. [27]

While the Weinberg family did not find a great deal of success in the Leadville liquor business, their prospects in Aspen and Cripple Creek were more lucrative. Charles became a manager of the O. K. Clothing Emporium at the former where he remained for nearly a decade. [28] The first notice of the family’s presence in Cripple Creek was the appearance of the Weinberg Clothing Company in a program for the Business Men’s Carnival published in The Morning Journal on October 23, 1894. [29] Despite owning a business in Cripple Creek, the Weinbergs seemed to maintain a presence or at least interests in Aspen for their remaining time in Colorado.

Charles and Antoinette adopted a daughter named Georgiana (shortened to Georgie or Georgy) sometime between the 1880 and 1885 US and Colorado censuses. Georgiana, born in 1875, went on to marry Elias Cohn on January 15, 1897 in Aspen. [31] According to an article in The Aspen Times published roughly six months before their marriage, the engagement between the young couple caused a degree of controversy among the Jewish community as the relationship was between a supposed gentile (Georgiana) and a Jew (Elias). [32] There is no further reference to this controversy in Aspen.

The majority of the Weinberg family relocated to New York in the early 1900s where Charles and Fred worked at a business simply advertised as Frederic’s at 905 Broadway. [33] Charles and Antoinette’s final appearances in US census was 1910, listing them as living in Manhattan. [34] Fred does not appear in their household.

According to a notice in Leadville’s Herald Democrat, Charles Weinberg died in New York in either late December 1910 or early January 1911. [35] It is not currently known where he was buried. The only confirmed grave for the Weinbergs is of Selig, the elder brother of Charles who, as far as can be told, never lived in Colorado. [36] The 1910 US Census recorded Elias and Georgiana Cohn still in Aspen with two daughters, Regina and Ruth. [37] Elias died in 1912 and is currently buried at Red Butte Cemetery in Aspen. [38] Georgiana’s grave is not located there, however. Her final census appearance is in the 1920 US Census which shows her living in Boulder with Ruth. [39]

Maurice Weinberg
Occupation: N/A
Born: N/A
Birthplace: N/A
Died: April 26, 1880

Nothing is known about Maurice Weinberg aside from him being buried in Leadville’s Hebrew Cemetery. [40] The headstone simply states his date of death as April 26, 1880. It is possible that Maurice was in some way related to Charles and family, however the name Weinberg was also quite common in Colorado as well as across the United States. It is just as likely that Maurice Weinberg had no relation to them.

Jacob Weinberg
Occupation: Clerk
Born: N/A
Birthplace: N/A
Died: N/A

Jacob Weinberg only appears in the 1880 Leadville City Directory [41] in which he is listed working as a clerk at Joseph E. Shoenberg’s [42] clothing store. There is no further information on Jacob’s time in Leadville. There is currently no evidence to indicate that he was related to any of the other Weinbergs in Leadville.

13 These number are rough estimates based on a variety of secondary and primary source comparisons. The generally accepted number of African Americans who took part in the war as soldiers was around 180,000 and entirely enlisted by the Union. The white population of the US per the 1860 census was 26,850,000 (omitting the Jewish population number) but likely skewed by the coming war. Accounting for African American and Jewish participation, the remaining number of white soldiers in the war was roughly 2,760,000 to 3,010,000. This equates to white participation in the war of roughly 10%-11% of their total population.
