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 
    • Named as Caroline A. Ringler, daughter of Isaac and Annie Leedom in her death record. Her birth place is recorded as "Washington" which was confirmed to be Washington D.C. in the 1880 census record of Grafton, Taylor Co WV. Her birth place is specifically listed there as "D.C.".

      Her birth date is calculated from her age at death, 41 years 4 mons 11 days, in the same record as recorded in the Taylor County Clerk's Office.

      She is named as C. A. Leedom, born Loudon Co VA, in her marriage record. Her middle initial looked like 'O' in the 1860 census but every other record gives 'A'.

      In her husband Franklin's will written in 1906, twenty-four years after Caroline;'s death, Franklin left a specific request to his daughter Harriet of "my large family Bible, the picture of Hair flowers, and her mother's portrait and easel". So Caroline appears to have been a painter.
