Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the 8th of 10 born to Paul and Edith (Drayton) Johnson of La Junta Colorado.
I decided to trace the family history after hearing all the crazy stories of Native American relatives and outlaw relatives. Turned out none was true. Basically came from hard working farmers who had lots and lots of kids and have traced them all over the country with all sorts of names.
The more I dig the more I find and cant believe how huge this thing is getting!

Sally Leonard
If I'm reading this correctly, Sally Leonard was born in 1789 in Illinois. At that time, it was the Northwest Territories inhabited by Native Americans and Métis, mixed-blood descendants of Native women and white men fur traders. So, it is safe to assume that Sally was a Métis. Just thought I'd let you know. - Carl Grant

Parks & Sarah Brittain
Not sure what happened here, but Parks memorial needs to be revised.

Parks Brittain
BIRTH 10 JUL 1771 • Richmond, Harlan, Kentucky
DEATH 05 OCT 1846 • Shady Run, Keokuk, Iowa

Is there a grave marker or some kind of information on these burials for this private Jones cemetery? I found a James & Deborah Leonard-Gore living next to Parks & Sarah in 1810 Barren County, KY after marrying there 28 Jul 1803. Deborah is from New Jersey and probable sister. I believe Sarah Price is likely Sarah Leonard as the only mentions of the Price surname comes from Deborah Leonard-Gore's death record which states under list of parents names: __&__, Price __ and Sarah's child Milton "Price" Brittain. So, in Deb's death record does the line after Father's surname indicate mother's 2nd marriage was Price and her actual maiden name is unknown? I found a James & Deborah Leonard-Gore living next to Parks & Sarah in 1810 Barren County, KY. James Gore gave Sally Leonard away and is on her marriage certificate to Parks and other records.

Sarah Price Brittain (1771 - 1843)
Hi Sue,
Just thought I'd update some info on Sarah "Sally" Leonard.
According to her marriage record of 21 Nov 1810 to Parks Brittain she was 21 (b.1789). No person has given evidence nor have I found any evidence of her death.
Sarah Price Brittain (1771 - 1843) I found no evidence of such a person. Although Parks did have a wife before her, Elizabeth King.
Replace with:
Sarah "Sally" Leonard 1789–1843
BIRTH 1789 • Knox, Knox, Illinois, USA

Afraid I cant help you but contact the gentleman who placed the Stone photo on memorial He an expert on this cemetery. Jarrott

P.S. the maiden name most likely came from an edit made on the new edit system.

Took the picture of the new headstone today and posted them on findagrave. They left the old one there also. The new one looks great.

Thanks. His father, Jesse Bridges, was married to two of my G-Grandfather's sisters, Mary and Elmira but Elmira was William's mother.

Rogers, John and Sarah
Photographed the stone as asked and placed it on the memorial. Normally I also look in the cemetery book in the city office also and get dates and places of birth and death if they are listed. These two are not listed in the cemetery book which leads me to think that they may be buried elsewhere and a memorial stone placed here in the Girard cemetery for them.
