Jacob & George LEONARD were brothers born in VA in c1775 and April 1777, respectively, who moved to Salem Township, Champaign County, Ohio sometime around 1805-1811. They lived and died in this township. Jacob died between 1830-1840 and George died in 1868. Looking at census records, it appears that Jacob's wife was Catherine (unknown maiden name). Jacob and Catherine LEONARD had a number of children, one being William LEONARD, born 1815. William married a Mary J. (unknown maiden name, born 1817), presumably around 1835. Also, in the 1830 census an 80-90 year woman is enumerated with George - is this his mother? I'm seeking the following information: Marriage Records 1. William LEONARD to a Mary J. ? , probably in Champaign Co., OH ca 1835 2.
