Samuel Eichenbaum migrated to the United States in 1870, having first arrived in Shawnee.  In 1881 he moved to Corning where he clerked for two years and then went into the dry goods business for himself.  After his death, his adopted daughter Bertha ran the store until  1976  when she sold it to Beatrice and James Dean who operated the store until 1986.

    Do you know what country he immigrated from?

    The people in this photo are my Grandmother, Bertha Eichenbaum Levion and Grandfather, Marcel Levion – not Bertha’s adopted father (and uncle) Sam Eichenbaum – who founded the store where this picture was taken. My father, Leon Levion believes this photo is from the early 1920s.
