    This was my great-great grandfather, Henry Leiman’s business. I still have some of the original cigar boxes. – Elaine Leiman Barber Fuller

  2. Lyman says:

    I am also related to Henry Leiman. Henry’s father Daniel came from the town Roddenau, Hesse-Cassel to NYC in 1850, his brother, Henry Leimann arrived in 1852. There were also several other siblings who arrived during that decade as well. I am a direct descendant of Henry who changed his surname to Lyman. After about a decade of research I have found photos and history on our Leimann family dating back to the 1650’s in Hesse, Germany. I would be interested in sharing information and would like to obtain one of the cigar boxes as a family keepsake if possible.

    Lymon, That would be wonderful! I only have one box but a lot of the Leiman antiques of Walnut and mahogany are in my home and my sister’s. Would love to connect with you. Thank you!
