Broida Family (Click for Family Tree)
This tintype may have been taken in St. Louis, Missouri. Morris and Harold were living with their father’s cousin Jacob Broida about this time. Morris had gone to live with Jacob and his wife Anna when his mother, Gitel Frank Broida became ill with tuberculosis. Little Harold travelled with his parents and older brother Joseph to Denver, Colorado likely in hope of Gitel improving her health, but that was not to be- she died in 1901. (See our Matrilineal Monday: Where Were the Children of Sarah Gitel Broida in 1900?) Harold possibly was then sent to live with Morris and the cousins as he was too young for his father John to care for without a wife. Morris and Harold were listed in the 1910 US Federal census in St. Louis, Missouri in Jacob’s household.
In 1910, Phillip was enumerated with his father and stepmother and most of his brothers in Pittsburgh, PA. We have been unable to determine where he was in 1900, when his parents were in Denver. Does this picture suggest that maybe he was staying with his cousins as well, but was somehow missed on the census enumeration? Possibly… more research.
