Jane (Leonard) S. Case...
Good Evening Judy,
Jane is at Find A Grave Memorial# 98581925 with a birth date match from the Bible record. (She lived with son Merritt Birdsall Case in Forest Prairie, Meeker, Minnesota on the 1870 census.)
More:
"Experience (Nichols) Case died in December 1830 and Reuben remarried within the year to Jane Leonard. The Case manuscript implies that Jane had been married before. Perhaps children by this earlier marriage account for the additional children in the family picture portrayed by the 1835 state census of Danby: one boy born between 1820 and 1825 and two girls born after 1819.63 Reuben's death occurred 30 May 1847 in Danby."
Source: (I “googled” "family information for Reuben Case A16415" mentioned in an email at "Flewston"'s tree))

GEORGE W. LEONARD DIES AFTER LONG ILLNESS
George W. Leonard, a resident of Grayling since about 1900 passed away at his home in this city at 5:20 Saturday morning, after a lingering illness with cancer of the face. He first took ill with the disease seven years ago, and submitted to several operations during that time, that relieved him of the pain at intervals. Since last fall he has been confined to his bed and has been the victim of intense pain.
George W. Leonard was born at Fort Gratiot, Mich., in Huron county May 26, 1848. He was united in marriage to Dorothy E. Helens on September 24, 1871 in Grant Township, St. Clair county. The young couple made their home in Fort Gratiot where they engaged in farming. When their children, who numbered four had grown up, they moved to Waters, where they resided for a few years, coming to Grayling twenty years ago. After about a year’s residence in Grayling, they moved back to Fort Gratiot, and remained for a couple of years, returning at the end of that time to Grayling, where they have since lived. In Grayling he followed carpenter work and draying for an occupation.
The funeral of the deceased was held at the family home on the south side at 10:00 o’clock Monday morning and the services were conducted by Rev. Ray Carpenter and F.D. Griffin. There was a goodly number of friends and neighbors of the family present to pay their final respects to the deceased. Besides his wife, three sons and one daughter survive. They are George W. Leonard of Flint; William N. of New Orleans, Mrs. Lillian Carvely of Twining, and Ira Leonard of Terry, Montana. Those who came to be in attendance at the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. George Leonard of Flint and Mr. James Ingle, a cousin of the former, also of Flint.

RE: Good Morning Tim
Before William J. Rattenbury married Mary Burke he was married to Mary Theresa Hartman. Their son William F. J. Rattenbury married Louise Philamina Heuser. This is the Louise you were asking about :)

RE: Good Morning Tim
Hi Cousin Judy! My descent from John Burke and Bridget Bolger is as follows:

John Burke/Bridget Bolger
James Aloysius Burke/Harriet L. Healy
Bridget Madeline Burke/David Zug Barton
Barbara Ann Barton/Robert Gurnee Hewitt
Timothy Robert Hewitt (me).

I'm afraid I don't have info on Louise. I will look into it to see if I can figure where she comes in.

Lydia Leonard
Hi Judy,
Thanks for the update - I did have her on my tree, but with a different birthdate:

"Lydia Ann LEONARD" (dau of Benjamin & Eva)Birth: 16 October 1814 in United States;
Source: The "bible record of Eva Burget and Benjamin Leonard”…listing their 10 children w/most birth-dates…added to the Hewston-Brittan & Leonard-Annadown Family Trees by “fhewston” on 7 Nov 2009 @ ancestry.com; accessed 22 April 2012.

I haven't searched for much more on her yet.

I've been meaning to contact you about Mary Jane Leonard (dau of Chauncey & Sally) and Louisa Leonard [your mem# 75339832] (dau of William & Samantha) who I think both married Charles Taylor. I think Mary died, then he married Louisa - Louisa on 1900 census shows 12 children born / 10 children living - then in 1910, she shows 12 / 12 (?)
I have found 12 with various records showing parents as Charles Taylor & Louisa Leonard - if you use the info, please read my notes & sources in case I have made a mistake.

Thanks so much for keeping in contact with me,
Ruth

Diegels, etc.
Thanks for all the updates! Sorry I don't get back so promptly. I used to occasionally go to the library and work on findagrave. Lately I'm confined to typing with my thumbs. I have a phone with internet capability, which is a joy and a blessing. Our library computers are usually either torn up, or they have recently been "improved," so that I cannot log on or spend my hour trying to reset passwords: "Yahoo doesn't recognize this IP address, please log on from your home computer to reset..." I don't have a home computer, so I go round and round with them. Google is getting just as bad. Everybody wants to send me a link to update my passwords. I have enough trouble rememnering the passwords I have, without changing them all every whipstitch. Gripe, gripe, gripe! I didn't intend to send you a gripy message. Do you know who Paula Poundstone is? I think she's hilarious! Paula says she doesn't need to remember any more passwords because she's run out of cats. Each password is the name of a cat. "How many cats do you have to be to be a wierd cat-lady?" If you've never heard her, she's on National Public Radio on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" A very funny show.

Sounds like you have been working a long time on genealogy. Thanks for all your help, and for all you have contributed to Findagrave. One of the reasons I keep coming back here is that they keep things simple for old guys like me. I hope Ancestry doesn't change things too much. Another reason I come back is all the nice & helpful people like yourself that I have met, and continue to meet. Good luck to you, and good health. Most of all, happy graving.
