Leland Bailey1895,Edna Leonard1898 Live Descendant Search
I hope my request is appropriate.I believe I'm following the rules.Please advise if I need to do otherwise.
Attached is the information that I have been able to gather on the web.Here is the story:
Thank you for making the information available on the web.I have been researching Edna Leonard 1895 who married Leland C Bailey.
So is it Leland C Leonard (some have her married to Leland Llewyln Leonard b 1982 which is not accurate according to the 1930 census which shows leland with a middle initial C and several more children, the first two George and Lorena (1920 census) are the same.
I was following lines down to the present and came through Edna Leonard.The information I found showed an Enda Leodard B: 1895 in Pennsylvania daughter Ella Leonard 1868 married George E ALBERTS 1868 D: before 1920.Why she took on her maiden name again, I can't find info on yet.There were two census with Ella Leonard, one with her as mother-in-law to Leland Baily, wife Lorena Baily and two children, George and Lorena Bailey.
Now, I have Ella Leonard 1868 m. George E. Alberts 1868 parents of Ella Leonard are Sarah PLACE 8137 and Wellington Young LEONARD 1834 and so on, with others in their ancestrial line.
Do you have any information about this connection and whether the Ella L 1869 m to Unknown Leonard is the same as Ella Leonard 1868 m. George E Alberts 1868?
If this is a solid connection, do you have any information about the next generation from E Lorena Baily (1917) or her two sisters F Isabel Baily (1921) or Shirley a Baily (1930)?They have two brothers:L George Bailey 1920 and E John Bailey 1925.I have been searching for live descendents and have yet to locate any.
We have a 3 generation research project proving who Grandpa Bill was and it will take Midochrondrial DNA to prove it.Bill's children, grand children and now great grand children have done much research which has brought us to you and this point to find the Midochrondrial DNA descendent and receive a mouth swab on a q-tip, all of which we'll pay for and make directly available to the person willing to help us.
If this connection with E Lorena Bailey is the correct one and we can find a live descendant using the female lines down to the current generation live which can be male, many people we be very grateful.
Thanks for your assistance.

Bill Gawne in his GEB Web Page: Research from Harry A Longabaugh:
Shirely A Bailey 1930
F Isabel Bailey 1921
to Edna's daughter:
Edna LEONARD 1895 Leland C. BAILEY 1898
to Ella's daughter:
Ella L 1869 Unknown LEONARD Ella LEONARD 1868 George E. ALBERTS 1868
to Sarah's daugher:
Sarah PLACE 1837 Wellington Young LEONARD 1834
to Annie's sister:
Annie G PLACE 1830 Josiah LONGABAUGH
Harry A LONGABAUGH "Sundance"
From the initial research Ella looks like the same person.
It is known that George E Alberts died before 1920.
In the 1920 census Ella Leonard is living with daughter Edna and Enda family include Lorena.
By 1930 Ella Leonard was back on her own with 3 borders living with her.
Edna went on to have more daughters.
Best use of research time:Since I see this as a probability, even though Ella isn't using her
married name of Alberts for some reason.
Finda George E ALBERTS death certificate and firm up this connection.
First:continue the descendent research to a live descendent.
Leland C Bailey 1898 is the one we are following.
Leland Llewelyn Baily 2 Nov 1895 in Richmone Township, Tioga, Pennsylvania, USA Is NOT.
Find draft notice signed by his wife.
Thank you for your patience with the length of this post, it's really important to many of us and all this information is needed to clarify and find the descendants we are looking for.
