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 
    • The 1900 census of Yazoo, Yazoo MS lists a William and Nettie "Linsemeyer" and son Loyd (probably Lloyd): William age 33, b. Oct 1866 MI (though both parents born MI (which would be incorrect if this William)); Nettie age 32, b. Oct 1867 MI, both parents from MI, Loyd age 8, b. Aug 1891 MI. Census says married 12 years, Nettie the mother of 3, 1 still living. The 1910 census of Silver City, Yazoo MS may be the proof that the William in Mississippi is this William, son of Christian and Charlotte. Listed in Silver City, though no street address, visitation # or family # is given, is William F. Linsemeyer, age 44, born MI, "single", a machinist. Living with him is "brother" A. Fred Owen age 22, b. MI, single and also a machinist. He is actually William's half-brother (Fred is also listed in the Benton Harbor, Berrien MI census in 1910 but that census dated Apr 1910, the Silver City MS census dated Jun 1910. In 1920 William still at Silver City, though now Humphreys County MS, age 53, a machinist, married to Nettie (looks like), though a different Nettie as she is 37 years old and born MS. Also with them is "step daughter" Mildred Hovell age 14 (this census very hard to read - William is actually indexed as William H. "Loseyneyer"!). The 1830 census lists William and 2nd wife Nettie at Jackson, Hinds MS. William age 63 b. MI, parents from GER and MI, Nettie age 47 b. MS, parents from AL and MS. Living with them is mother-in-law Laura Skinner age 78, widow, b. MS, parents from MS. William died before 1940 as the 1940 lists wife Nettie as a widow.

      The 1880 census of Watervliet, Berrien MI lists a Joseph and Josephine Knapp family with a daughter Annette b. abt. 1868 MI. Joseph age 45 b. VT, Josephine age 36 b. PA.
