Is there a book of bios for Montgomery county such as were published in most counties in the late 1800s to early 1900s? I am looking for a bio of Robert LEAMAN, contractor, b. 1798 in Lancaster Co, PA and died 1867 in Dayton, Ohio. According to a bio of one of his sons, Abraham B. Leaman, he was responsible for most of the stone bridge work in Dayton at the time. Coincidentally perhaps, his son, Robert Fulton Leaman, owned property in Fulton Co, IL where there was a large quarry (but lived in Cincinnati).
Robert Leaman (the father) was married to Julianna BARR in 1822 in Lancaster Co, PA, according to a newspaper account.
