My ggrandfather Heinrich Leimann (Henry Lyman)(1832-1903) of Germany arrived about 1860 in NYC. He married an Annie Balage?? (1841-?)around 1858 in NY. The 1860 Census shows him with a wife Annie and 1 mo old daughter Annie. Apparently they divorced or she died or there are 2 Henry's because the 1870 shows him married to Louisa Emma Schmidt (Smith)(1851-1901)in Scranton, PA. I haven't found any marriage certificates for either wife and haven't found anything about Annie Balage, Billig, Ballage, Vallage, Ballege, etc. Henry's obit in 1903 mentions his surviving children but not a spouse. My cousin entered the "Lymans of Scranton" posting; that's where I got some of the info along with Ancestry and several websites.HELP.
