Beloved grandfather of Kurt. A lifelong resident of Montesano. When he was a teenager, he lived above the county jail with his father, Art, who was a deputy and the jailer. Leland knew all the deputies, including Carlton Stearns. Sheriff Jeff Bartell kept 2 baby alligators in a glass case in the office, a deputy name of Joe Cartell used to get 15 year old Leland down on the floor and hold one of these aligators up to his ear to chew on it. one time Leland got tired of it and punched Joe out in the alley. he was sometimes allowed to lock up the huge old rolling door of the jail. His father was tragically killed, there were no records of him being in the sheriff's dept. he and another fallen officer were forgotten about for 73 years until it was brought to light again when I went to the sheriff's dept. with the info. the present day sheriff presented a letter of recognition to Leland for his father's service. Leland married Iris in Monte on August 26, 1944. He was in the U S MARINE CORPS in WW11. He was also in the Aberdeen Fire Dept. you are welcome to make copies for family genealogy purposes only. I will be happy to transfer to a family member.
