Updated: Jan 22


Albert J. Leonard was the son of Lewis Leonard and Cora Sherman. He was born on December 15, 1894 and died on October 10, 1957. He is buried in Rose Cemetery in Rose, Wayne County, New York. His obituary, printed in the Clyde Times, October 17, 1957, reads as follows:


"Albert J. Leonard, 62 years old resident of the Hadden Road, town of Savannah, died suddenly of a heart attack at the Berry Truck Stop Restaurant one mile east of Clyde late Thursday afternoon, October 10. He was born in Pennsylvania Dec. 15, 1894, son of Louis and Cora Leonard. He had resided in Moravia for many years as a farmer, before moving to Savannah 20 years ago. He is survived by his wife Valentine Mathieu Leonard, 1 daughter, Mrs. Charles May, and one son, Richard Leonard, both of the Town of Savannah; seven grandchildren; one sister, Mrs. Lee Osborne of Willet, N.Y. and one brother, James Leonard of Moravia, N.Y., also several nieces and nephews. Funeral services were held at the Harold S. Mann Funeral Home in Clyde Sunday afternoon Oct. 13th at 3 o'clock, the Rev. Arthur Morey of the Clyde Methodist Church officiating. Burial was in Rose Cemetery".


No mention of his first son, Robert J. Leonard (or his grandchildren by him) is made in Albert's obituary. Robert was remembered in Albert's will, however.
