Died of typhoid fever (in hospital) while visiting his grandson Aron. He caught the fever while visiting sick and needy Jews.
He owned a property and was a horse-dealer in Mensguth supplying horses to the Russian army. His business travels took him as far afield as the Caucasus. He also supplied Count (now prince) Dohna in Schlobitten, on whose personal demand Leib was naturalised as a Prussian citizen (1840?) by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia, while the King was present as a guest at the hunt. The document, signed by both King and Count and which was in the possession of his daughter Dorothea, has unfortunately been lost.
On his death certificate his name is written as Kaminski. On his son Marcus' death certificate his given name is written as Louis.
