Biography

Leonard married 1 Catherine Ashley from Fort Ann NY on May 18 1846. Children: Nellie (Helen) O (Sept 1847). Married 2 Ellen Osborn in 1861.

Leonard appears in censuses from 1850 through 1905, often every 5 years. From what can be gathered from them, Leonard's and Catherine's daughter Helen was born 1 1/2 years after they married, after which Catherine promptly died. Shortly thereafter, Ellen Osborn started working for Leonard, taking care of the house. It was a huge property, and Leonard usually had one girl to take care of the house and one boy to help with the farm chores. These people kept changing, possibly every year or two. All except Ellen, who married Leonard after working for him for 10 years. Somewhere around 1868 Helen married George Tremain, and their children included Leonard (1873) and Evelyn (Eva, 1875). After he retired, Leonard lived with them.
