Facts and Events
Celia ("Chana Tzivia") Brautman was a beloved daughter and sister plagued with poor health through her teens. She died just shy of 19 years. Her death certificate said that she had suffered from "chronic valvular disease (rheumatic)" for 7 years prior to her death. She lived with her parents and four sisters her whole life. The family lived at 87 Cannon Street in the Lower East Side most of her life, until about 1919 (when she was 15) when they moved to 1524 Madison Ave (at 104th St, which was "Jewish Harlem" at that time). In the 1920 census (age 16), she is listed as no occupation, but at the time of her death she was working as a bookkeeper. She is buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery in Queens, near to her parents.
