Notes for LEONARD WILLIAM ENGLAND:
Leonard England's first wife died of complications from childbirth.He married Mildred Louise Beatty because she was pregnant with my father.They married in May my father was born in November of 1933.My grandmother took care of his first three children although the oldest child Jo was more like a sister to her than a child.Len was 16 years older than Mildred.He was known as a generous man who would give you the last dollar in his checking account.He was a lazy man who did very little work after his kids were old enough to take over it but that was more likely a result of his weak heart (the result of rheumatic fever) than a personality defect.He could pick up any instrument and play it within 1/2 hour.He was played a banjo, guitar, fiddle and mouth pipes.
As a child, his illness caused him to be alone alot so his family had bought him a guitar to play.He was a very lonely man who suffered from bouts of depression.He was quiet and had a quiet if violent temper.
He could tell you how to do thinks with such exact detail that it was like reading an instruction manual.He seemed to have a natural ability to remember details.
This information was mostly gathered from my aunt Sissy (Lousie Mildred) who was my grandfather's third child of eight.
What I can say is third hand about my grandfather as I never met him but they all loved him.My father was the eldest child he had with my grandmother.He loved his father and so did all the kids who remembered him.The two youngest Pat and Nancy have only limited memories of him.
