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!

      L. R. Broadbelt was the attending physician who signed the 1918 death certificate of Margaret Worrel Pyott. His wife, Sarah Emily Leedom, was the daughter of Edmund Leedom and Sarah S. Powell. Edmund is one of the four children of Daniel Leedom and Elizabeth Worrall, all of whom I've been researching for years looking for any Pyott connections.
