Bio Photo Robert Thomas "Bob" Leitner, b. 31 Aug 1924 in Lacoochee. Pasco Co., FL s/o John Proctor Leitner and Blanche Gertrude Connell. Grew up in Dade City and Plant City, FL. Learned the electrical trade from my Uncle Chan Miller and also worked in the theater business. Managed theaters in Lakeland and Arcadia, FL. Left theater business to work for Tampa Ship Building Company as an electrician. Drafted into Army for WWII. Two battle stars for European theater and combat infantry badge. While on way to Europe, met Pauline Davis in Baltimore, MD and we married on my return. After discharge from army, went to work for Glenn L. Martin Aircraft (now Lockheed-Martin) in Baltimore, MD. In mid 1950's, transferred by Martin to Orlando, FL as Plant Engineer for new Plant. In mid 1960's sent by Martin to design plant in Albuquerque, NM. Resigned from Martin and went to Fairchild Aircraft in Hagerstown, MD as Facilities manager. Retired from Fairchild in mid 1980's and spent many happy years touring in a motorhome with my wife. My wife and I started our interest in genealogy from my cousin Fannie Bell Priest Kipp who research and issued a book, The Leitner Family In Florida, in the mid 1960's.
My wife passed away in 2003 and I remained in Maryland for several years. After open heart surgery in 2007 my son's family convinced me to relocate to Seneca, SC and be near them. Still in Seneca and working on genealogy. I guess it gets in your blood.

RE: Joshua McGahagin
Hi. Just to let you know I did finally find my photo of Joshua McGahagin. I will add it to the memorial very soon, if that is okay. Thanks, Tim

Grace Burchett Leek Family
Hello sir, my name is Kevin Cantrell and I came across the memorial that you made for my great aunt, Grace Burchett Leek (76297470). She was my grandmother, Emily Alice Burchett Music's older sister.
I was wondering if it would be at all possible for me to maintain the memorial for aunt Grace? If so, I'd really appreciate it. I also want to say thank you for making a memorial for her.

Mellie was a Dupree. She married first Elma Jones and had a son by him, Elma Jones,Jr.
She then married Albert Obediah Barnes & had 3 daughters by him....I would appreciate it very much if you would correct her memorial.
Thank you, Judith H Garner,Find A Grave#19469775

Robert, the siblings that you have listed for Isaac Lee Alderman are incorrect. Only two are correct for the Alderman parents that you have named. Issac Lee and Hiram P Alderman belong to John A Alderman and Susan Jane Alderman, the other three are children with his first wife, Emily Norman.

Thanks for the correction. Can understand why you can not find info on James Wallace Jones...just too many. I usually avoid names like Jones, Smith, and Brown...just happened that Flora is in family history so had info on her. Please do not transfer being as I am not related except through many marriages.
