Bio and Links
I was born on a northeast Missouri farm in 1926. Yes, that was long ago. I have been married for 50 plus years and have been interested in family history for 30 years. My main interests are sir names Gatewood and Lease.

I have information on the Lease family in Adams and Pike County, Illinois from 1850. Mostly concerning Jacob Lease, 1817-1897, and his 14 children.

All persons listed in my Gatewood and Lease Virtual Cemeteries are related to me in some way. Those in the Bishop Virtual Cemetery are related in some way to my wife.

Hello Dale,

We saw your postings on Find-a-Grave re. your Gatewood family. We have a connection to Dr. Robert H. T. Gatewood. Our gr. gr. grandfather, William T. House had a farm in the same township & section of Audrain Co. MO. & at the same time.
We have papers from our WT House that mention Dr. Gatewood: (2) 1865 letters & a probate court record for WT House. Dr. Gatewood was named one of the appraisers of his property when he died 1881.
If you are interested in seeing these, we can send you copies, either by email or snail mail.

We could also tell you of our Burgdorf/House/Gatewood connection by marriage.
Hope to hear back from you. I am also a Find-a-Grave volunteer. Our direct email addresses:

Jane & Nancy

Would it be possible to get a copy of the book? I am descended from that line and I have recently began researching the Gatewoods. Sondra
