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 
    • Jessie's parents' names are from family notes substantiated by a biography in Encyclopedia of Biography, Vol 33, pgs. 122-123.

      Her middle name, birth date and place are from IGI records extraction. The IGI also lists a twin sister, Isabel Newman Warden. Jessie was married first to Arthur J. Hughes Sr. He died on 11 Nov 1958 in Montclair NJ and was buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery. His surviving wife was named as Mrs. Jessie Hughes.

      Arthur and Jessie M. Hughes are listed in Essex Co NJ in the 1930 census. He was aged 40 and born in NY. His wife Jessie M. was born in NY, her parents born in NY, with two children, Jessie I. (for Isabel?) and Arthur Jay Jr. Daughter Jessie I. was 18 years old and born NY, Arthur Jr was 9 years old and born in NJ.

      Yes, the Jessie I found in the 1930 census is my grandfather's second wife. She died in 1967 only five years after he did. Her obituary in the Montclair Times on 21 Nov 1967 named her as Jessie Hughes Leedom of 2 Arlington Ave in Caldwell NJ. It described her as, "wife of the late Laurie M. Leedom, mother of Mrs. Robert M. Bull and Arthur J. Hughes Jr."
