Dont remember reading this on any posts so I thought Id post it.

Louis B Linkman is listed as living at home with Mary Linkman at age about 16 in a listing from the 1878-1879 Lakeside Chicago City Diretory.  The directory lists Louis as a clerk at 163 Lake St. on page 957.

http://books.google.com/books?id=...snippet&q=linkman&f=false

In that same directory on page 1976 both M. Linkman & Co. at 22, 35 Clark and Reiss Bros. & Co. at 163 Lake are listed under the category of Meerschaum and Clay pipes.

So Louis B. age about 16 might have been working for a Meerschaum and clay pipe company known as Reiss Bros. & Co.  I say might because further searches of the directory revealed that several companies listed 163 Lake as their address.  

Its likely Louis was working for a pipe company but this document doesnt prove it.

Reiss Bro. & Co. of Chicago was to later become Reiss Premier and then later Kaywoodie according to posts on the Kaywoodie forum here:  Posted: Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:42 pm    Post subject: A Kaywoodie precursor
