Leibish "Louis" Schlissel (Schlussel) was born in the area of Krakow, Poland about 1855 to Mojtesz and Sarah (Blasbalg) Schlissel. He married Zeisel Flanzgraben about 1877. Leibish immigrated to the US in 1891 and settled in Manhattan, New York. His wife and three of his six children followed in 1897. His youngest child, Max, was born in the U.S. in 1899. His eldest son, Morris, was stricken with Polio and spent the last 15 years of his life in the Montefiore Home and Hospital for Chronic Invalids before succumbing to Tuberculosis April 4, 1918.

The family lived in the same location at 314 Delancey Street from 1900 until well after his death in 1920.

Leibish died 8/25/1920 of Acute Dilitation of the heart and chronic Endomyocarditis.

Although the family used the surname Schlissel, Leibish's second son Jacob used the surname Schlussel. Schlussel was the surname listed on the Ship's manifest when Zeisel and the children immigrated in 1897.
