Milstein, Channah, 1847-1930

 Person

Hannah Milstein and her husband Benjamin, emmigants from Russia, were part of the early settlers in the Cotopaxi colony in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Colorado in the early 1880s. She was the sister-in-law of Shul Baer Milstein, and after moving from Cotopaxi to Denver, was dedicated to helping the poor in that city's West Colfax Jewish area. She collected food, clothing and funds from anyone she encountered and gave them to needy families.
