I need help with the surname LEATHER in Iowa, associated with early railroad
projects in the mid-west. W.B. Leather was a civil engineer and architect
employed, I believe, with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe RR as well as
the Southern RR; I have no idea of a specific area, but I will take any
mention of the surname LEATHER. He was William LEATHER,(age about 60 in
1880); wife, Marion (I think), a son, George B. and a daughter, Grace.
Marion Leather, I believe, lived in IOWA at about the turn-of-the-century
and apparently is buried near Council Bluffs. Her surname, through a later
marriage, might be listed as CROCKWELL: Marion Crockwell. Would very much
appreciate any help.
