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 
    • John Leedom, 87, of Oil City RR 1, died at 10:50 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2001, in Northwest Medical Center at Franklin. Born June 1, 1914, in Oil City, he was a son of James and Ellen St. Clair Leedom. Mr. Leedom was a 1932 graduate of Oil City High School. He retired in 1975 from Penelec as a manager in the Meadville office. Mr. Leedom was a member of Second Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder and deacon. He was married June 15, 1954, to the former Dorothy Cauvel, who survives.

      Although John's obituary stated he was born in Oil City, probably because he lived there for the majority of his life, I've entered Butler PA as his borth place becasue that is what he supplied for his WWII Draft Registration card. It is also where his brother Robert was born according to his birth certificate.
