check the city directories....
check the advertisements in the newspaper at that time....
suspect that there was more that one cigar maker...
could be too, that he lived where he worked.....
Check the local historical society too for many info that they have for businesses...namely cigar makers....
should you be interested in this from the standpoint of HOW it was all done.... you might want to check around in MIAMI on your next trip to the area... I know there is one hand roller there....but cannot remember the name of the place or exactly the location.... Check with Miami's business license department..they would be able to tell you where......
I doubt that you will find too many employment records but I would certainly keep trying to find them..... again: Historical Society....of purblic library in town......
and Be sure to POST to the WARREN PA list...or one that is in that area....

Can anyone tell me what cigar making company would have been in Warren Penn.
around 1865-1870. I've found my great grandfather on a census in Warren. Now
I'd like to know what company he worked for. And if it is still in existance,
do you think it would be possible to get employment records. I also have a
mysterious uncle who was a cigar maker and I'm hoping to track him to that
area. Thanks.. Nancy
