Research Notes

James Landes: Only the name of Maria Elizabeth with the last name spelling of Aeschlimann was in the passed down notes from my grandmother, [Rusmisel-2]. I believe Grandma received this information from her sister Aunt Maggie Leedy [Rusmisel-8] who was the daughter-in-law of [Leedy-149]. Jacob Brower [Leedy-149] was the youngest of his many siblings who lived nearby in Bath Township, Allen County, Ohio. Thus there were many other possible sources for Grandma's family history notes about the Leedy family ancestors.

It appears this profile is the same as Aeschlimann-42. However the surname is misspelled. (Reversed "li" in this profile). As this profile is a new name creation the spelling should be corrected. Thanks.
