MORRIS GOLDSTEIN was born in 1906, the second of five sons of Samuel and Esther Goldstein. The Goldstein family was on Kaighn Avenue as early as 1910, when they resided at 417 Kaighn Avenue. Samuel Goldstein then operated at "gents furnishings", what today is called men's wear, store. At least six sons were born to the couple. The third child, Abraham, passed prior to the January 1920 census. 

At the time of the 1930 Census, Samuel Goldstein and his five sons, the oldest being Harry, Morris, and younger brothers Henry, Nathan, and Bernard "Barney" Goldstein, were living at 429 Kaighn Avenue, where Samuel and the two older sons operated a delicatessen. By the end of 1937 the family was living at 419 Chestnut Street. Morris Goldstein, however, had moved out, and lived at 322 Kaighn Avenue

Morris Goldstein came to the attention of the police in January of 1938, when his residence at 322 Kaighn Avenue was raided by Camden Police Detective Thomas Murphy and Sergeant Gus Koerner. Both he and his father were arrested, along with three other men.

Morris Goldstein appears to have remained in Camden through at least 1947. The City Directory of that year shows his father and brothers Harry and Barney still living on Chestnut Street.
