William Zelinkoff (Hebrew name: Ze'ev ben the Reb Binyamin) was born in Colorado on September 26, 1898. Zelinkoff’s father, Benjamin Zelinkoff, originated in Russia.[1] Zelinkoff resided in Denver during his earlier years and made a living as a clerk. It is unclear why or when Zelinkoff relocated to the High Rockies, however, he made appearances in Leadville between the 1930s and 1940s.

 

At the age of 38, Zelinkoff married 34-year-old Mollie Hein (Hebrew/maiden name: Sara Malka bat Yaakov Yitzchak, born in Jerusalem).  The couple obtained their marriage license in Leadville in 1936. [2]

 

The Zelinkoffs had two children: Phyllis and Ronald.   Zelinkoff was also father to a step-son, Morris Hein.  Hein attended Lake Junior High and Leadville High School. [3]

 

William Zelinkoff passed away on July 1, 1962.  Mollie Zelinkoff passed on April 5, 1902.  Morris Hein was a lifetime member of B’nai B’rith and passed away on November 30, 2012. William Zelinkoff, Mollie Zelinkoff, and Morris Hein were laid to rest at Rose Hill Cemetery in Commerce City, Colorado.
