Re: Mary Rachael (Loar) Leonard
I believe I may be related to your Mary R. Loar. I have a copy of her will, dated Apr 7, 1898 in Marshall County, Kentucky. In it, she mentions two sons, George C. & T. B., as well as a Eunice Woodruff. Most of her possessions were divided between these two sons & Eunice, including her farm. Given this, I feel very strongly that Mary & Eunice were related; however, I have not yet been able to determine how. My great grandmother was named Eunice Woodruff. She was from Marshall County, and her death certificate says she was buried in Little Cypress - which is also where the Leonard Cemetery is located. I have not been able to find much about Eunice's history, and am hoping you might have more information about the Leonards & Smedleys that might help me tie Eunice to Mary. No lead is too small - any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
