Mary Ellen SMITH b. ca 1858 in Washington County, Arkansas m. 10 Feb 1881 to James Thomas LEACH. She d. 18 Sep 1946 in Washington County, Arkansas.
They had children: Semantha Leach; Rowena Leach m. Mr. Hicks; Velma Hope Leach m. Mr. Rauch; and Donna Alice Leach who m1 McCaleb, m2 Hoverstrite or Hovenstrite, m3 Audman.
Family tradition relates that Donna Leach had written a complete genealogy of the LEACH, SMITH and McKENNEY families. Her work reputedly was destroyed by one of her "heirs". There is a slim possibility that at least some of her work was given to a local genealogy society before her death or that she published small bits in a genealogy publication before her death.
If there is anyone who knows about Donna and her work, I would appreciate hearing from you!
