Re: How was LEONARD family related to John ATWATER m. 1853 Jane BARBER Brooklyn NY?
I just looked in an older volume of Atwater history and I think I found something!Jane Barber's father was Benjamin Leonard and her mother was named Jane Barber.Jane B. Atwater was born in Agawam, MA July 22, 1828. Jane and John had six children- John A., Mary E., Benjamin Leonard (born Aug. 11, 1858 and died June 8, 1860), William C., Elsie W., and Jane Leonard.(They were determined to keep that name "Leonard" going in the family!)There is quite a lengthy article about John Hoadley.If you'd like me to send it, I can.Maybe this is what you've been looking for!I can give you more dates for the children if you need them.
