I found a RootsWeb entry for Leonard HOMEWOOD and I would like to have his
complete obit. I am particularly interested in learnng more about Dora
Corbin, his adopted daughter. She is part of our Lane, Lamb and Emery lines.
A California death certificate that seems to be for Dora Corbin lists the
name Mansur, but I don't know how that fits. Thanks - Kathleen Deao
