Would anyone on the list researching the above family names along with:
Leas, Fisher, Johnson, Doman, Langworthy, Tucker, Henry, Clerc, Meyer,
O'Brien, Tucker, among others...
-please contact me so that I may put you in touch w/ another direct
descendant? (Who happens to have several very nice photos)!
My personal computer is acting up at the moment so I'm unable to
copy/paste addl details at this time.
Of interest, Rosa Richardson, d/o Wm & Mary (née Cundiff) is not the
same Rosa Richardson who md Austin Moon.
Also of interest, the mystery child of Rosa (of the next generation)
and Walter Leas, who was listed in Rosa Richardson Leas Clerc's 1931
obit, after she died from a stove explosion in DeSoto, was Russell
Leas, b. 1926.
Walter and Rosa had two sons, Walter Jr. and Russell, both born in New
York where the family of 4 resided in the 1930 (Manhattan) census. New
York is where Jacob & Carrie Leas (parents of Walter Sr.) lived. It is
unclear as to what happened to Walter Sr and Jr prior to Jan 1931,
which is when Rosa md Pierre Clerc Jr in DeSoto.
It is also unclear if a connection exists between Walter Leas and the
family of Albert Leas of DeSoto who hsppened to marry at the same time
and shares the same marriage license page.
I look forward to hearing from fellow researchers on this extended
family- Kay, FL
