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 Leedom Family source gives the birth year of Joseph as 1852 but his oath given for his passport application in 1874 gives his birth date as "on or about 23 Aug 1853" in Montgomery Co PA. His burial record gives only 1852 as his year of birth.

      His death certificate does not give his birth date only his age at death, 72 years. The informant was his son, E. Conover Leedom, residing 703 Walnut St. His occupation is given as Attorney and his parents are named as Dr. Edwin C. Leedom and Susan Lukens. His funeral was held at St. James Episcopal Church in Philadelphia.
