Broida Family (Click for Family Tree)
The second eldest surviving child of John “Zelig” Jacob (Karklinsky) Broida and Sarah Gitel Frank Broida, Louis was born in Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co., Pennsylvania on 7 January 1884. The family lived in Pittsburgh, with his father a merchant there.
When Louis’ mother, Gitel, became ill with tuberculosis and moved to Denver for her health around 1900, Louis, then 16, and his younger brother Max (listed as ‘Moros’ in census) went to live with their paternal aunt, Kate Broida York, and her family of 11. In 1910 Louis was living in his brother Joseph J. Broida’s household.
Lilian Bildhauer was born on 2 July 1892, possibly in Pittsburgh. One of three daughters and a son of Robert Bildhauer (b. Feb 1860-Germany) and Bina ___ (b. Nov 1861-Germany), Lillian Bildhauer grew up in Pittsburgh, where her father was a butcher.
Louis and Lillian married about 1913 estimated from birth of their first child. He was a merchant, primarily in haberdashery. He was also a manager of “The Hub” in 1934 in Pittsburgh, but we have been unable to determine what type of business that was.
Their three daughters were born in 1914, 1920, and 1925, and they lived in Pittsburgh until Louis’ death 18 July 1941.
Lillian survived Louis by 30 years and died 28 March 1971 in Miami Beach, Florida.
