When John Morse Leonard passed away in 2015, his daughters passed his collection of family history documents to their cousin, Richard Leonard. This collection is split into two parts: John’s items collected during his lifetime, and his mother’s collection, that John inherited on her death. Catherine Morse Leonard was the daughter of the U.S. Congressman Elmer Addison Morse and Myra Elizabeth Tradewell Morse, and many of her documents appear to come from her parents, and her grandparents.
These are the items from his collection that have been cataloged, scanned, and made available.
