Leonard was the middle brother of my grandfather. I never met him. I know almost nothing about Leonard. I did not even know Leonard existed until I found that very first lead about my grandfather’s family history, the 1930 U.S. Census record.
I did not even know the name of my second great grandmother until March 2012, when I discovered the marriage record for her daughter. My second great grandmother Catherine Darnley appears to have had at least a complicated history of marriages.
