- Resided 1205 Allegheny Avenue, Philadelphia in 1930, practicing physician. Father born PA, mother born in Germany.
Probably the single, 28 year old John Leedom boarding in the household of Louise McGlynn in Philadelphia in 1910. Residing 3016 Fifth Street, occupation listed as physician.
His death certificate names him as John Francis Leedom and gives his birth date as 18 Dec 1880, one year earlier than the date give in the Carrell and Dungan source. It names his parents as David Leedom and Frederica Miller and gives his occupation as Physician. The informant was his wife, Mrs. Mary Leedom residing at 1205 W. Allegheny Ave.
The same 1881 year of birth is given in his WWI Veteran's Service files so that is the date I've used here. He also names himself as John Leedom. The record names his deceased parents and three children and details his service throughout 1918 and 1919.
