Don, I would live to see and read a poem of your grand dad. Also can you describe and tell me a little bit about the area where you, your parents,grand parents grew up. I believe my leadenham/ledingham ancestors migrated from scotland about 800 years ago to Foston, England where they have live up till now. Some of them migrated to the united States and i am researching the leadenham, Ledingham, lednum and leadingham surnames and other spellings. I am Paul leadingham retired in Frederick, MD. USA.
