We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

The deceased, who, in spite of his advanced years, was in excellent health, was the oldest of 10 children of the late William and Martha Leedom, having been born in Upper Makefield. For many years he was a farmer in both Upper and Lower Makefield townships. He was engaged in farming until he was about 60 years of age and later he took up his residence in Phila. Six children survive. They are Louis C. Leedom, Yardley; Mrs. Macre Laney, Herbert E. Leedom and Arthur G. Leedom, Phila.; H. Armitt Leedom, Batavia, N. Y., and Mrs. Audon Hatch, Wenonah, N. J. 3 sisters surviving are Mrs. Anna Wiggins, Wrightstown; Mrs. Laura Wiggins, Newtown, and Mrs. Lillie Titus, Pennington, N. J. A brother, Charles L. Leedom, Trenton, also survives.
