I am looking for a possible connection between Lear Leonard, born ca. 1809 in NC, died after 1880 in Cedar County, MO and the Woolivers of Iredell County, NC and Dent Co. MO. Lear was the wife of Robert A. Leonard who migrated to Dent County, MO in about 1832, along with many other families from Iredell Co. NC.On the death certificate of their youngest son Scott Leonard, it states that his mother's maiden name was Wooliver. On census reports from 1850-1880 she appears as L. Leonard, Lear Leonard and Delila Leonard.I suspect Lear Leonard is the daughter of Jacob Wooliver and Mary Hoover. You mention documents concerning David Wooliver that name heirs of his brother Jacob, living in Missouri.Is their any information about a Lear Wooliver or Lear Leonard?
