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!

    Notes 
    • Nathan's occupation was given as Automobile Mechanic in the 1920 census and as Hardware Salesman in 1930.

      His birth record transcription in Pennsylvania, Births and Christenings, 1709-1950, gives his parents' names as Walter (in error) and Orpha A. Leger. I previously had his birth date only as Feb 1898 from 1900 census.

      Nathan's WWI Draft Registration gave his full middle name and his occupation as Chaffeur for C. L. Gross of Philadelphia. He named his contact as 'Mother' residing at 6551 Haverford, Philadelphia, the same address he provided for himself in that record.

      A transcription of the Georgia Death Index gives his death date as 14 Aug 1957 in Evans, Georgia.
