Thanks -- yes I would like more info re Alex Leatherberry.I would especially like to get more info about his wife, to see if her maiden name was BURDGE (per my source) or THOMPSON (per your source).
What are your sources for Rebecca's maiden name being THOMPSON?
I do not know the identity of Alex's parents.I have not put much effort into that because I have not yet been able to confirm just who Rebecca is.
