Maternal GGGG Grandfather~~Revolutionary War Veteran

Moses Leonard was a Revolutionary War Soldier who was in the Battle of Brandywine as a wagoner. His service was verified by the DAR. Moses Leonard drew a pension from the war, which was also verified by the DAR in 1952.

Moses and Elizabeth's daughter Casandra (Cassie) Leonard Holman is my GGG Grandmother, and she married Francis Holman in Ohio. She was the first of his 3 wives, and
died at age 40 when my gg Grandmother Evaline Holman Perrine was an infant.

Additional and partial information on the other children of Moses and Elizabeth:
John, b. 4/1796, d 12-26-1868, m 2-8-1816 to Margaret (Peggy) Smith, b 8/1794, d 3-13-1847
Elizabeth d 6-3-1861, age 67y 15d, m Andrew Smith, d 3-27-1860, age 80y 11m 18d,
Aaron m 5-22-1824 to Elizabeth Perrine.

Several generations of the Holman family and Perrine family married, so I have a double line through this branch.
"The families of John Anderson and Moses Leonard settled in what is now Sterling Township in 1799 or 1800, both purchasing land in the J. Harvie Survey, No. 3,344. They were brothers-in-law, and emigrated to Ohio together a year or two before settling as described. They came from New Jersey to Pittsburgh by land, and thence down the Ohio River by boat, and landed at the mouth of the Little Miami, where they remained until their removal to this vicinity.
Mr. Leonard was a Pennsylvanian by birth, and was married to Elizabeth Anderson. Their children were John, who was twice married--first, to Margaret Smith, and second, to Mrs. Sarah Smallwood, a widow;
Elizabeth, who married Andrew Smith;
George and
Hannah married Jacob Mason, of Williamsburg;
Cassie married Frances Holman;
Aaron married Elizabeth Perrine;
Levi married Mary A. Hickey of Clermont County, and died on the homestead December 14, 1872, in the sixty-sixth year of his age;
George married Mary Amos, of Cincinnati, and
Ellen married John Shotwell. The last two are the only survivors of the immediate family.
Moses Leonard was at the battle of Brandywine in the capacity of a wagoner. His death occurred January 9, 1844, aged eighty-four years, nine months and twenty-four days, and that of his wife July 11, 1834, in her sixty- first year. Their son John Leonard served in the war of 1812."
