    Josephine was born in New York City to a Prussian Jewish household; her daddy was a baker. They transferred to San Francisco, where Josephine went to dance school as a lady. When her daddy had trouble discovering work, the household relocated with her older sis and brother-in-law to a working-class tenement. Josephine escaped, potentially as early as age 14, and took a trip to Arizona, where she had an "experience." She might have shown up in Prescott, Arizona as early as 1874.
